947 Launch New State-Of-The-Art Montecasino Studio In Style

It’s a match made in heaven and after months of work, radio station 947 officially launches their brand-new state-of-the-art studio at Johannesburg’s leading entertainment complex Montecasino.

The high-tech, 40 square meter studio launched on Friday 4 September with a four-hour broadcast of popular afternoon drive show ‘Fresh On 947’, featuring DJ Fresh, co-host Mantsoe Pout and funny guy Shannon. Select evening and weekend shows will be broadcast live from the studio.

The studio features state-of-the-art broadcasting equipment, lighting and a stage with retractable, sound-proof glass doors to allow audience access and participation. The space also includes a customised backdrop wall where listeners can take selfies while watching their favourite presenters in action.

“As a brand, 947 wants to be more visible. We want to interact with our audience in the spaces where they relax and enjoy themselves. For the people of Fourways, Randburg, Sandton and  surrounds, Montecasino is their entertainment venue of choice” says Thando Makhunga, 947 Station Manager. Makhunga added that the partnership with Tsogo Sun’s Montecasino cements 947’s positioning as Joburg’s favourite radio station. “The studio was designed with complete accessibility in mind. We look forward to using this interactive setting to its full potential once all Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.”

Mike Page, Director of Operations, Montecasino, adds: “Montecasino is an award-winning entertainment destination right here in the heart of Fourways. We offer the best in family experiences – like 947, we entertain… it’s what we do! 947 has its finger on the pulse of Joburg, connecting to the city’s energy, sense of adventure and diversity. We share the same audience, so a strategic alliance made sense”.

Fans are encouraged to visit their favourite 947 presenters and say hello at the new studios. Listen to 947 to find out when presenters will be live from the complex.
