Yesterday (9 June 2010) Jeremy Mansfield announced that he will be leaving The Rude Awakening team. He has hosted the show on 94.7 Highveld Stereo for 13 years. According to the press release, his last show will be on 12 July 2010.
He will be best remembered for his jokes, The Christmas Wish, ripping off the East Rand and just Jeremy being Jeremy.
The show will continue with Darren Simpson, Samantha Cowen and the team.
Reasons for leaving:
I could not find any concrete reasons for Jeremy leaving the show. It was said on a blog that he is leaving NOT because he is sick, but rather just tired. I would imagine getting up to be at work by 6 in the morning for most days of the past 13 years must have taken its toll. He said that he will still be involved in Media and have his fingers in various pies.
Good Luck Jeremy Mansfield! Thank you for the last 13 years. I personally have loved every show!
(5 July) Monday 12 July is Jeremy’s last show! i think its going to be a big emotional one… Keep you comments comming in, i will submet them through to the RAW team later this week.
