Nigel Pierce

Good Hope FM is shuffling its line-up, which sees Nigel Pierce moved from his morning slot.

The maltrap breakfast show host will be moving to the station’s afternoon drive show as of from 2 April, after being replaced by young, award-winning radio host Dan Corder, who currently hosts the 12 to 2pm slot.

TV personality Leigh-Anne Williams will also be moved to GHFM’s afternoon programming.

24-year-old award-winning radio host Corder would be among the youngest breakfast show presenters on air in South Africa.

In 2014, Corder won an MTN Radio Award for his campus radio show Rise and Grind, where he was the contributor and producer.

He is also the creator of Finding the Hype, which was nominated for the Liberty Radio Awards for Radio Innovation in 2016.

Corder is also an activist, who gained prominence off the back of the #RhodesMustFall protests, and was critical to the creation of the documentary Luister, which highlighted discrimination at Stellenbosch University.

Corder currently hosts Beats by Dan daily between 12 and 2pm on GHFM.

Nigel has been involved in radio for some 28 years, working for top radio stations in the city including 567 Cape Talk and KFM 94.5.

Station manager Brendan Ficks says: “Nigel is happy about the move. We all need changes, it’s an opportunity to re-invent himself and he is still a valuable member of Good Hope FM, with a huge following.”
