East Coast Radio would like to bid a fond farewell to the traffic legend Johann Von Bargen, fondly known as JVB. After 33 years in radio and having been with East Coast Radio since it was born, Johann has decided to retire.
East Coast Radio Programming Manager Zane Derbyshire says, “JVB has been reporting on the roads since before East Coast Radio came about. He is widely recognised as one of the top traffic guys in the country and he is also a world-renowned defensive driving specialist. We’d like to thank JVB for all his years of service and for reliably guiding our listeners to and from work every day for so many years. He has been a pleasure to work with and the team, including our listeners, will miss him.”
The station’s General Manager Boni Mchunu adds, “JVB has been a good friend to the station and our listeners, therefore we can never say goodbye. We will simply say see you soon on the KZN roads. Thank you for your reliable reporting and all the best for your new chapter.”Tags: East Coast Radio, The Traffic Guy
