To say that radio presenters enjoy moving from one station to another would be an understatement. And one would be right to peg broadcasters and bankers at the top of this kind of job prostitution.
For close to a year, one radio presenter that has endeared himself to listeners in Sunyani and its environs is DJ Slim. Since he joined the cocoa house-based Sky FM sometime in 2011, the KNUST graduate has done a lot to contribute immensely to making the listening experience on Sky FM worthwhile.
The sad news though, is that, as you read this piece, the Supreme Bigger Figure has quit Sky to take up an appointment as late afternoon show host of newly-opened Takoradi-based Paragon 99.9 FM. Paragon999 which has been storming the Oil City since late last year, also poached another Sky FM sports chap popularly called OB.
Radio in the Oil City is known to be very competitive than it is in Sunyani and Slim would have to do a lot more to engrave his name in the plates of the late afternoon show hall of fame. But considering Slim’s wide range of experience in the industry, he is very likely to make a mark in his new-found territory.
Before joining Sky FM in 2011, DJ Slim had worked for Focus FM and the defunct Radio Xtacy in Kumasi. He’s also known to be the DJ of the hiplife duo Bradez. Before leaving Sky FM, Slim also doubled as the head of events and promos.
Paragon999 operates under the management of popular and hugely successful radio presenter Nana Otu Gyandoh. Gyandoh has been an authority in the late afternoon department of radio since his days at Kapital, Skyy Power and Melody FM, and with his support DJ Slim is likely to succeed in the Oil City.
We wish Slim and OB all the best in the Oil City.
