Our Heart FM News team is a powerful, experienced group of specialist radio news journalists.
With a strong focus on the local and regional news agenda, they're in daily contact with the newsmakers, analysts and power brokers who shape and monitor the social and political landscape. They're highly respected knowledge holders who probe beneath the surface of the story; fearlessly interrogating those in authority so that the people of the Cape can get to the heart of the stories that matter most to them.
They tell you these stories themselves - ensuring that what you hear is absolutely accurate, balanced, and relevant to your own life. We're committed to making those stories easily understood and utterly credible.
