Jo Anne Kretzen - Station Manager

Jo Ann has been with us on the Gateway Radio vision from the very beginning. In every aspect of her career and Church life, she has proven to have a true servant heart. We couldn't think of anybody better to act as our station manager!

In addition to having an attitude of excellence in everything she puts her hand to, Jo-Ann has great organizational and management skills, understands something of sound technology and loves the Lord with a passion

In addition, he is something of a musician, playing guitar in praise and worship bands both at Church and for youth events.

Duran Fielies - Recording Engineer

From Slangrivier near Heidelberg, he is as excited as we are about Gateway Radio! It is wonderful to have found a member of our local community who is trained and equipped to work for us. He is a lovely young Christian who has drive and wisdom.

We are grateful to CCFM radio who have gone the extra mile in assisting Duran in relocating to cape town in order to do his internship with the station. He graduated from CAE last year and will be our technical and recording engineer at Gateway Radio when we are up and running.

Our pre production studio will be equipped to offer recording facilities as well as the day to day programming. Duran will head up this department as well as train up our staff in their various positions.

Carlynn Kotze - Spiritual Advisor

We are honored to have her on our board of directors. Carlynn is the director of CHARIS Bible College, South Africa, but represents the board in her own personal capacity. Her experience will be of immense help in equipping us with invaluable counseling advice and training.

Jonathan - Sales & Marketing

We are very excited to welcome our newest team member. He is a charismatic young man with a real heart for the community.
