Well-known veteran radio presenter Darren Scott will be joining the OFM family from Monday, 3 July, as the host of the brand-new afternoon drive show, Just Plain Drive on OFM.
Scott will be replacing popular host of the Afternoon Delight, André Kunz, who is relocating with his family to Johannesburg.
Scott has a highly successfully career in the media, including hosting radio shows on Jacaranda FM, 5FM, East Coast Radio and will continue as breakfast host on Johannesburg’s Hot 91.9FM.
Scott recently won Best Presenter of a Breakfast Show at the coveted Liberty Radio Awards. His show, Jo’burg’s Hottest Breakfast Show, on radio station Hot 91.9FM, also won Best Breakfast Show.

Says Nick Efstathiou, OFM’s General Manager: “OFM is delighted to welcome Darren Scott to the station. We always knew that it would be tough to replace one of our most popular presenters, but to have someone of his experience and caliber on air will ensure that this new venture is a great success. We are looking forward to introduce Darren to beautiful Central South Africa and to its wonderful people!”
