Gareth Cliff, announced his next big gig today (14/04/2014) after recently leaving 5FM.
CliffCentral.com – which launches on 1 May – is according to the outspoken broadcaster going “anywhere and everywhere – we will be uncensored, unhinged and unradio”. “CliffCentral is not just an online radio station. It will be multi-faceted and free from suspensions, restrictions or BCCSA complaints,” commented Cliff.
“CliffCentral will be available online, but what I’m most excited about, is our partnership with WeChat. CliffCentral will have its own Official Account (OA) on WeChat and that’s where the magic is going to happen.”
“WeChat is a platform that envisions and innovates new ways for people to connect, communicate and share. Much like what Gareth has in mind for CliffCentral,” explained Brett Loubser, MD of WeChat Africa.
“It’s not just about streaming. That’s only the beginning of the experience the CliffCentral OA on WeChat has to offer. A mash-up of functionalities will be available via the OA on WeChat: think voice and video clips from the CliffCentral team, the Poll with Mol, vouchers, chat groups etc. This is not radio as we know it.”
