Were it not for Martin’s lack of talent on the green, this would-be pro golfer from Centurion’s radio talent would have been lost to the world of broadcasting forever. The Chelsea FC fanatic, who even named his Basset Hound Didier Drogba, joined OFM in April 2013, fresh out from behind the mic at TUKS FM where he honed his skills while studying B.Com Marketing at the University of Pretoria, as host of the afternoon drive show, Siesta. He now hosts The Big Breakfast on OFM - Central South Africa’s premier radio show broadcasting to four provinces including the Free State, Northern Cape, North West and the Vaal region in Gauteng. Through his passion for people and sport, being a proud supporter of the Cheetahs and Knights, Martin is also a popular MC, hosting some of the biggest events on the Central South African social calendar.
Duncan can best be described as the person who is first in, and is the last to know what is going on. Raised on The East Rand of Johannesburg, Duncan has always found himself in the middle of situations, which he has no idea how he got himself into. He is also always game to "try anything once." His desire to be in the radio industry was born as a young “ankle snapper” and in 2010 Duncan finally got his foot in the door when he joined Pretoria based, Tuks FM. Five years later he found himself joining Central South Africa’s most loved radio station and with his infectious personality, listeners took to him quite quickly! Duncan is happiest when he is working on The Big Breakfast and loves every morning that he is able to be behind the mic causing chaos with the rest of the Big Breakfast team!
“Sport has very much become my life along with all things sports media related.” Born and raised in the Eastern Cape, Sam Ludidi quickly fell into a sporting life. Captaining sports sides all throughout school, nothing changed upon his arrival in Bloemfontein in 2013. Along with sport, radio also entered his life. Sam spent six years at campus radio, two of them as sports editor and another two as programing manager, while still being behind the microphone. Back on the sports field Sam played first team cricket for Kovsies for four years and also served as a senior provision hockey umpire for the South African Hockey Association. All this happened while perusing and landing a job as new talent on SuperSport as a rugby presenter. In the two years at SuperSport he covered various tournaments including the Varsity Cup, SuperSport Rugby Challenge, the Currie Cup and the Guinness Pro14.
“Thank you. You give me a reason to live. You give me a reason to smile. You are a friend.” These words were said to Zelda Goetz in passing by a homeless gentleman who made a point of listening to OFM every night from a small cellphone radio. It was upon hearing these words that Zelda knew she had found her chosen path and today these words continue to ignite her passion for radio.
Zelda matriculated from Saint Michael's School for Girls in Bloemfontein in 2007, then while following her passion in Fine Arts,she was discovered by chance in 2012, where her story with OFM began.
Zelda started off by joining the OFM’s Street Squad and was offered an on-air training position in 2014. After a year of sharpening her skills, Zelda joined the OFM on-air team to host a midnight show. A year after of being a night owl she was brought into the light to join the "Afternoon Delight" drive time team.
Having fun, focusing on the positive and uplifting others is what makes her tick.
