The John Robbie Show

John Robbie hosts the breakfast show on 702 and gets the debate going with listeners on what’s making headlines both locally and internationally.

John speaks to the newsmakers as well as those directly affected by the issues of the day. He doesn’t shy away from controversy and provides a platform for fair debate.

Named the best breakfast show presenter in South Africa at the MTN Radio Awards, John has been the recipient of numerous other nominations and awards for his work in the media and for raising awareness on pressing issues and finding relevant solutions.

John moved from Ireland to South Africa 30 years ago, as an international rugby player and joined 702 shortly after the station launched in the early 80s. He has since become a patriotic South African, immersed in the country’s current affairs.
