Joanne joins the 702 team on Wednesday 2 May to sit in the hot seat on afternoon drive, between 15h00 and 18h00 weekdays.

I look forward to being part of a team that strives for excellence every day on the airwaves, and never shrinks from tackling the most challenging, controversial stories head-on. It's important to me that we infuse stories with the humanity they deserve and give a voice to the many who've traditionally struggled to be heard. On Afternoon Drive, we'll seek to tell those stories unflinchingly and empathetically, while holding those answerable to account
