Twice a year YFM calls out for aspiring young creatives to apply for and join the Y Academy – YFM’s accredited 6 month internship programme in broadcasting.
The programme has put more people in active positions in broadcasting more than any other radio internship programme in South Africa. In fact the Y Academy works so well that our current Programmes Manager Tshepo Pule comes from the first ever group of Y Academics. Not forgetting that the entire drive team team which includes DJ Sabby(host), Tshepi Mabs(co-host) and Samke Mhlongo(producer) all hail from the Y Academy.
We spoke to DJ Sabby who is the host of YFMs Drive Time Show - The Best Drive, about how he joined YFM and what his first job was here at the station and this is what he had to say.
