Following a recent UN appointment, Starr Drive co-host Anita Erskine is set to relinquish her post at the EIB station.

Inside sources submit to ENEWSGH  that Live FM and GH One’s Berla Mundi is being considered as replacement. Flagship programme for the popular radio station, it was previously manned by Erskine and CEO Bola Ray, before he handed the baton to protege Giovanni Caleb.

The pairing promises to be interesting as it will see Giovanni reunite with his MTN Hitmaker co- MC. The pair have fostered strong chemistry during their time compering the reality show, and the reunion should serve as an interesting extension of their on-screen telepathy.
