Taking over The Big Show, fresh off winning the NAMA award for Outstanding Journalist – Radio earlier this year, Chamvary (real name Rumbidzayi Mugwira) joins the ZiFM Stereo team to much excitement from her fans. ZiFM Stereo listeners can expect her trademark energy and high-profile celebrity interviews to continue at her new home, weekdays from 10am to 2pm.

The ZiFM Stereo station manager, Danis Dube, (aka Danny that Guy) commented: “We have created a new line-up on radio that not only gives our listeners a fresh take on exactly what they want, but also maximizes the opportunities for our advertisers. We are thrilled about the new line-up and are looking forward to sharing the exciting journey with our existing listeners and new ones too! Making changes to the on-air team is always a bitter-sweet experience, but we believe we are cementing ourselves as the hottest station in the nation with the new on-air team and format. We want everyone to agree with us when we say that ZiFM Stereo is My Station, Your Station!”
He added that the station was not done with the exciting announcements, and that more changes could be made soon.
