Phat Joe is back on radio


Phat Joe is finally back on air after three weeks suspension which was as a result of his thoughts on Zodwa Wabantu’s controversial words about gays, which was aired.

The SABC confirmed to TshisaLIVE earlier this month that the Radio 2000 breakfast host had been “unscheduled until further notice” in the wake of backlash over his comments about the LGBTIQ+ community.

Besides pulling him off air, the broadcaster said it had held workshops with all its talent and production teams to “retrain them on the BCCSA Code, the Broadcast Act and SABC editorial policies to ensure that there is no recurrence”.

On his resumption back to the radio station, Phat apologized.
