The prime-time show is designed to deliver relevant content to our target market, which has been well achieved with increased RAMS and audience participation.

Fun, entertaining and insightful show promos create appointment listening which drives audience participation online and on-air, which is evident from the consistent influx of calls received live on the show.

The show is designed to focus on the topics that have a direct appeal to the target audience. Whilst ensuring that there is responsible, accountable and credible content on-air, the Breakfast Express has developed a solid reputation for quality content that empowers the audience to change their lives for good.

In 2018, the Breakfast Express team spent their 67 minutes (actually 3 hours) at the Ekujabuleni Children’s Home in Pietermaritzburg, where they opened their hearts and wallets to bring each child a gift bag of food, toiletries, and goodies (a total of 46 gift bags were made by the team).

The Breakfast Express' care and reach are not limited to just South Africa – when they heard about the devastating floods in Kerala, India, they made an appeal to the listeners to help through a non-profit organization, raising much-needed funds for the destitute, which was kicked off with donations of their own.
