Mansfield in the Morning

Weekdays from 6am – 9am

Mansfield in the Morning is, quite simply, the best way to wake up.

Hosted by the legendary Jeremy Mansfield, Mansfield in the Morning is 3 hours of fun, laughs (possibly a few tears) and, of course, the best old skool and R&B.

Join the team of Sam Cowen, Simon Hill, John Walland, Karabo Yibe and award – winning producer, Will Scott, every week day from 6 – 9 am as they put the fun back into morning radio again.

Jeremy Mansfield

Jeremy Mansfield started his career while still studying and started working for Capital Radio 604 in 1985. He was awarded the AA Vita as The Most Promising Young South African Actor in that same year. Later he joined Talk Radio 702 in 1990 when Capital Radio 604 closed down.

Jeremy shot to fame as host of The Rude Awakening on 94.7 Highveld Stereo, which he hosted between 1997 and 2010. Many South Africans might also recognise him from the popular educational program, A Word or 2, which he hosted on SABC 2 for ten seasons.

In 2004 Jeremy was the only radio personality to make it onto the list of the ‘Top 100 South African Personalities’ – he was ranked at number 53.

In November 2018, Jeremy came out of retirement to join his long-time partner in crime, Sam Cowen, on Hot 91.9FM as host of Hot’s all – new breakfast show, Mansfield in the Morning.

John Walland

Following his lifelong passion to be involved in electronic media, John Walland joined 5FM in 1989 on a freelance basis presenting news and sport.  In 1994 he joined on a permanent basis working alongside numerous top radio presenters, where his banter and humour made him a popular personality.  

Presenting and co-ordinating sports interviews during Nashua Sports Trax, John built up an excellent relationship with sporting personalities both locally and internationally.

John was appointed as Sports Anchor on SABC 2`s AM Today breakfast show in 1999 and also appeared on Mnet`s Super Saturday. In 2003 John left 5FM, joining 94.7 Highveld Stereo as a sports presenter. In 2008 he lent his warmth and sports journalistic prowess conducting interviews with local and international sporting personalities for the KFC Sports Cage on Jacaranda FM.

John, or ‘Johnny’ as everyone calls him, is a beloved and valuable part of Mansfield in the Morning on Hot91.9FM. He also presents Hot Sport every week night on Hot 91.9FM, interviewing the biggest names in the sporting world.

Simon Hill

Simon Hill started his radio career down in the Cape back in 2008 after studying and majoring in radio journalism at Rhodes University. His love for sport initially saw him lean towards the more ‘active’ side of radio broadcasting presenting sport on KFM, 702 and Cape Talk.

In 2011 Simon swapped his ‘hey bru’ for ‘ja, china’ and made the move from Cape Town to Johannesburg to take up a full – time career in radio. In 2012 Simon formed part of the founding group that started Ballz Visual Radio; South Africa’s first dedicated sports – only internet radio station.  In 2014 Simon joined Hot 91.9FM where he has been ever since. These days you can hear him on Mansfield in the Morning as well as The Downhill from Here Breakfast Show every Saturday morning.

Sam Cowen

Sam Cowen started in radio in 1993 in the 702 newsroom, and was part of the election coverage for the historic first democratic elections, producing Newsday for Chris Gibbons and Gary Edwards. Staying with Chris Gibbons she produced the Chris Gibbons Report for several years before moving over to 94.7 to join Jeremy Mansfield on air for the brand new Rude Awakening, a multi award winning show. Following that, 4 years on Breakfast Xpress on 947 followed, then 18 months at 702.

 

Sam joined Hot 91.9FM in 2018 and now co – hosts Mansfield in the Morning alongside her old – time partner, Jeremy Mansfield. She is still the longest running female breakfast show presenter in the country.
