Says Tessa van Staden, CapeTalk station manager: "Clarence is an institution and we are honoured to welcome him to the CapeTalk airwaves. He is truly a radio veteran, loved and respected by so many. We're excited to hear this long time CapeTalk listener share his ideas in this new format. Talk radio is a new and interesting beat for him - one that allows him to truly showcase his curiosity and passion for a wide range of topics."
Lester Kiewit, host of 'The Morning Review' is a long-standing fan of Clarence. "Clarence is a broadcasting legend and a real stand-up guy. I'm leaving my listeners in the very capable hands of someone I think they'll really enjoy. Personally, I can't wait to listen to his show”.
“I am a big CapeTalk fan and listener. This opportunity to learn, add the medium of talk to my resume and challenge myself by trying something new has me nervous and very excited! I hope the listeners will be kind and listen with a forgiving ear! I may even be able to convince CapeTalk to play one or two of my favourite jazz songs at the start of the week,” said Clarence Ford, CapeTalk stand-in presenter.
Listeners can look forward to a mix of news, information and lifestyle elements the show has become famous for, along with some unique perspectives from Clarrie.
