State prosecution has argued that Van Breda could amend his version of events if his expert witnesses testify before him.
John Maytham is a trained actor who made the switch to radio over 20 years ago when he joined the news team at Radio 604.
He then swapped reporting for anchoring an AM drive time show at a national talk radio station.
Once he set the bar for South African news and talk radio he accepted the challenge to join Primedia Broadcasting and help establish the newly founded CapeTalk, fulfilling the role of both News Editor and Breakfast Host.
He was the first host to switch on the mic on 14 October 1997.
Years later, he was also the first radio broadcaster to do a Google Hangout in South Africa.
John has racked up an impressive list of interviews including former president Nelson Mandela and South Africa’s youngest published author. He was the last to interview cricketer Hansie Cronje just before he boarded the plane which crashed, claiming his life.
Those that have been listening for years make a point of never missing a show and those that have recently started listening almost all agree that he rates as one of the most informed and intelligent people they have heard on radio.
Join in the conversation with John weekdays from 15:00 – 18:00.
