Tinashe Chikuse leaves ZBC

Prominent radio presenter Tianshe Chikuse has announced his departure from the state broadcaster ZBC.

“Well, for those that might have been wondering, its indeed true, it’s not a sabbatical but sadly it’s the end. Primarily, this letter serves to notify my fans that I resigned from my duties at the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC), effective the 3rd of April, 2023.,” he wrote.

In signing off on 20 years with ZBC, he said, “I must confess its shattering but I guess when one door shuts another opens or should I say, when one microphones switches off…another might just switch on. I never imagined the end because something in me so believed that our journey would last till eternity but I guess the myth is true after all, ‘people indeed meet to part ‘and in the same measure it’s my impassioned supplication that just as the myth goes, as we now part, hopefully we meet again. I find myself lost in thoughts, recollecting on past experiences.”

Chikuse started off at Sunday Mail, before moving to ZBC as a production assistant in the current affairs department in 2003.

“In the discharge of my duties, I was privileged to work on the stations flagship shows like the Media Watch, Talking Farming, Toringepi and Face the Nation to mention but a few,” said Chikuse.

His radio debut was on SFM (now Classic FM) with the breakfast show. He was moved over to Power FM where he hosted various shows, the last of which was the Champions League Breakfast with Pathisani Sibanda.

Chikuse said he was taking time out to figure out his next move as he digested the change.
