Names Christine Mawadri and Alex Ndawula will not ring a bell but to those probably in their thirties , those two media personalities dominated the airwaves for more than ten years.
They are arguably the biggest radio presenters till late and during their time on air, they commanded huge listenership despite the fact that they were both working at rival stations. Christine was at Sanyu FM while Alex was at Capital FM.
Well, the two are back on air and will be presenting the XnX programme on Jazz FM from 4-8 PM daily.
Alex Ndawula had quit radio and he was thrown a farewell party at Capital, a station he had been working with forever 15 years. He was given a retirement package as well as a car but in a twist of events, he realized that being on air was his life thus making a comeback to team up with Mawadri who worked on a number of stations like KFM and Sanyu among others.
With this combination, the young generation is surely going to be given a run for their money as Joel Isabirye, a veteran radio consultant also thinks.
“If they add on a robust social media campaign and bi-monthly tips from huub gales these legends will win huge audience share…one of the best partnerships we ever had on radio,” he says
