Popular broadcaster Prince Tsegah has joined the East Legon based radio station, Zed FM after resigning from his roles as Programs Manager of Hitz FM and host of the drivetime show’s gossip segment ‘U Sey Wetin’ few months ago, www.mediafillasgh.com sources can confirm.
The recently acquired Accra-based radio station Kingdom Plus FM, will now trade as ZED 101.9FM.
ZED FM as the new name stands, will compete in the urban market demographic. The station has been test transmitting since the takeover from the owner of Kingdom FM. Dr. Jonathan Kwame Amofa.
Normal programming is expected to begin in the coming days, mediafillasgh.com sources say.
The Don, as the presenter is affectionately called, is said to have returned assets belonging to Hitz FM which were in his possession, and completed the exit procedures in accordance with the policies of his former employer.
As his 7-year journey with Hitz comes to an end, Tsegah, often tagged as a controversial presenter with a huge following, according to sources, would now head to East Legon as he prepares to join the soon-to-be-unveiled radio station.
Tsegah succeeded Mark Okraku-Mantey in April 2021 as Programs Manager when the latter resigned from his post to focus on his political ambitions as he was appointed Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts, and Culture.
The Don assumed the position with a wealth of industry knowledge and leadership, stemming from his over a decade of experience as a presenter at Choice FM, TV3, and the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) Limited. Additionally, he held the positions of General Manager at both Soul Records and Gollywood Productions Limited.
It’s currently unknown as to which programme he would be hosting on the new radio station.
