Following Chaz-B’s shocking resignation from inspiration FM about a month ago, JM blog can authoritatively reveal that the radio station has replaced him with a new presenter Dr. Yolanda George-David. Well, she is not entirely new because she was invited as a guest on the show a couple of times by Chaz-B.
Dr. Yolanda is a professional Psychologist and life-coach and so the job is not entirely new to her. Before taking up this new assignment, she anchored her own show on the same radio station titled “Being Real with Aunt Landa”. It was a one-hour counseling and empowerment talk-show aired every saturday, 1pm- 2pm. She describes herself as a “Charity freak and an addict of Christ”.
Her assumption of duty comes with a few changes as the show is now called “Sharing life’s issues with Aunt Landa or Yolanda. Also, the show has now been moved from weekdays to weekends by 7pm and the show’s theme song has changed too. I listened to the first edition on April 27, 2013 and she talked about the fact that most singles feel that the right partners are all taken.
Chaz-B has since pitched his tent with Rhythm FM and expectedly most of the show’s listeners followed him there. After he resigned from inspiration FM, the radio station temporarily replaced him with Wana Udobang aka Wana-Wana but I honestly knew that Wana wouldn’t last ‘cos it was gonna be so tasking on her, being that she had to anchor the show immediately after her own traffic show.
Also, some people felt she was not “qualified” to handle such a show that dealt largely with marriage and relationships as she is not yet married, but hey kudos to Wana for doing a great job. It was because of her that listeners kept calling in after Chaz-B left and I personally feel that she was a good replacement for Chaz-B.
Other presenters who left Inspiration FM like Shola Thompson, Shayo and Folu Storms are expected to equally be replaced soonest.
I wonder if the new weekend time belt for the show is a smart move by Inspiration FM ‘cos over at Rhythm, the show is still from monday to friday, plus the fact that its also aired on other Rhythm FM stations across Nigeria and not just in Lagos like Inspiration FM.
The show’s new host Dr. Yolanda has big shoes to fill however because Chaz-B really held sway over the airwaves while he was the host. Let’s she if she will live up to expectation.
She can be contacted on:
She also runs a foundation called Aunt Landa Teenage Bethel Foundation as she has a passion for teenagers and desires them to get it right in life.
So, my esteemed readers, what do you guys think of this development?….leave your comments below. Thats all for now guys. Stay tuned for more….and remember, “Every man will have his day someday”
