Linda Mbuso hosts the 7pm-10pm weekday show on one of the nation’s most compelling and innovative stations, 5FM. Linda’s entertainment career was solidified after he presented, produced and directed SABC 3’s ‘The Espresso Show’. His passion for commercial radio arose during his 7 year broadcasting time at YFM. Pick n’ Pay recognized this appreciation and in 2014 they asked Linda to be the voice of their massive, corporate, broadcasting station which also airs in Zambia.
As a recognized social influencer, Linda previously utilized his naturally impressionable character for Phillip Morris International as a ‘trend spotter’. Linda confesses that one of his most profound accomplishments was the writing and completion of his book ‘Wounded Smiles’ which is with publishers in the UK.
During his Matric year at Holy Family College in Parktown North, Linda balanced being Deputy head Boy with revolutionising an in-school radio station. He later continued his academic career at Boston Media House where he obtained his UJ Media Studies Diploma in Media studies specialising in Public Relations and Radio Broadcasting. As if that was not enough, he went back to the University of Johannesburg a few years later where he obtained his BA Psychology Degree, with second major in Philosophy.
