Penny Ntuli is leaving a well known commercial radio for getting R2 800 a month

This is why broadcaster Penny Ntuli is leaving…

Penny Ntuli has parted ways with Gagasi FM. This after the Briefly Awards-nominated radio personality turned down the station’s offer to renew her contract after they proposed a R2.8K salary.

Famous radio personality, Penny Ntuli, announced her departure from Gagasi FM after years of working at the popular KwaZulu-Natal radio station.

According to Penny, the broadcaster offered her an amount of R2.8K a month, which is way below minimum wage, and said it wasn’t too far off from what she had been paid in the past two years.

The popular radio personality shared a heartfelt message on her Instagram page confirming the news. She said she tried her best to negotiate and help management see from her perspective, but her efforts failed.

She shared a separate post with a screenshot of her offer letter:

“I felt insulted, but I calmed down and went back to the management to ask them to review my salary. With that money, I will not be able to do anything. I asked how I would feed my family because they were all looking at me.

“I have decided to ask them not to renew my contract this year. I didn’t give up because I found something better, and I didn’t stop because I don’t love it anymore. Every person who knows me knows how much I love broadcasting and Gagasi FM.

“But it’s true. I’m not coming back this year, though I’m very grateful to Gagasi FM for the opportunity.”
