Hot on the heels of his Liberty Radio Awards nomination 25-year-old radio DJ, socio-political analyst and vlogger, Oliver Dickson, has joined the ranks of some of the youngest analytical minds to join the 702 family.
Dickson is based in Johannesburg and used to host YFM’s politics-focused youth-centered talk show called #YTalks before passing the baton on to young, female broadcaster Busisiwe Gumede.
On the show, the award-winning African debater engaged the likes of Mmusi Maimane, Presidential Spokesperson Khusela Diko, Thuli Madonsela, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi and Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes, to name a few, in discussion about the most pertinent political issues that remain top of mind for South Africans and Africans at large.
Before his departure from the station, Dickson managed to snag a nomination in the Best News and Actuality Show category at the Liberty Radio Awards alongside the likes of Kaya FM’s John Perlman and David O’Sullivan.
Join Oliver on 702 every weeknight in May as he unpacks the biggest headlines of the day and prepares South Africans for the news cycle as they navigate the murky waters of the upcoming 6th election.
