A New Chapter for Tumi Morake

Having risen to the challenge of co-hosting Breakfast with Martin Bester & Tumi Morake, it is with a heavy heart that Tumi Morake announces her departure from Jacaranda FM.
My performance career is taking a new direction and unfortunately radio, with the time and energy it requires at this level, doesn’t fit into those plans.  I had a great time and learnt many valuable lessons, yes, even when the pawpaw hit the fan.  I wouldn’t change it for the world,” says Tumi.
The Jacaranda FM breakfast show has won over the hearts of its listeners, and Tumi leaves the show after the hugely successful Rock’n’Comedy Cruise which combined Martin and Tumi’s off-air passions on an ocean liner.

As many celebrate valentines, some are deprived of that opportunit…
