947 now broadcasts from Montecasino
Leading commercial music radio station 947 is now broadcasting from their new studios at Montecasino – Fourways, Johannesburg.
The high-tech, 40 square meter studio launched on Friday 4 September with a four-hour broadcast of popular afternoon drive show ‘Fresh On 947’, featuring DJ Fresh, co-host Mantsoe Pout and funny guy Shannon. Select evening and weekend shows will be broadcast live from the studio.
The studio features state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment, lighting and a stage with retractable, sound-proof glass doors to allow audience access and participation. The space also includes a customised backdrop wall where listeners can take selfies while watching their favourite presenters in action.
“As a brand, 947 wants to be more visible. We want to interact with our audience in the spaces where they relax and enjoy themselves. For the people of Fourways, Randburg, Sandton and surrounds, Montecasino is their entertainment venue of choice” says Thando Makhunga, 947 Station Manager.
Makhunga added that the partnership with Tsogo Sun’s Montecasino cements 947’s positioning as Joburg’s favourite radio station. “The studio was designed with complete accessibility in mind. We look forward to using this interactive setting to its full potential once all Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.”
Mike Page, Director of Operations, Montecasino, adds: “Montecasino is an award-winning entertainment destination right here in the heart of Fourways. We offer the best in family experiences – like 947, we entertain… it’s what we do! 947 has its finger on the pulse of Joburg, connecting to the city’s energy, sense of adventure and diversity. We share the same audience, so a strategic alliance made sense”.
If Joburg is South Africa’s heart, then 947 is its racing pulse. 947 keeps you in sync with the city and gets you moving to your favourite tracks; all day and all night.
