Rob Vember’s warmth, humour and friendly style has made him one of South Africa’s most popular radio personalities.
He has won several awards for his work on-air, which he simply calls a “bonus.”
The radio host thanked his team on Instagram, writing: “[Thank you for] allowing me to work remotely and accepting ‘no’ a few more times than I ordinarily would have said it. Mostly, thank you for the great working environment that you’ve created!”
Born and bred in Bellville, Rob began his broadcasting career on campus radio station, Rhodes Radio while he was studying at the University in Grahamstown. He caught the attention of commercial radio station, Heart 104.9fm, who offered him the weekend breakfast show in 2006 and went on to build a national profile during his five years with 5fm.
In a statement he added that a return to hosting his own show could be anywhere “from six months to never” in the future.
Radio 947 wrote on Facebook: Rob, thank you for your amazing work and chilled nature. Stay shining and all the best.”
