Unathi Msengana opens up about leaving Metro FM.

Speaking to Cliff Central yesterday, Unathi said she had been “living” since leaving Metro FM after a 10-year stint.

Unathi said it was just a good time for her and Glen Lewis to ‘bow out and say good bye to Metro FM.

Singer and Idols judge resigned from the station shortly after her former co-presenter Lewis left to join up with another former Metro FM stalwart TBo Touch on his Touch HD venture.

Though she didn’t get into more details about her relationship with her former employer, Unathi said there is no bad blood between her and the station management.

“I pity them. There is a school of radio, and we love each other, and we are obsessed with radio, and it is all we talk about when we’re together,” she told Gareth Cliff.

“It’s knowing when to bow out graciously and gracefully; knowing when to be appreciative of the success. It was 10 years on Metro, six years on breakfast drive.

"They gave us two specific mandates when we joined the show: to double the figures, which is what we did, and to make our breakfast show the number one on Metro and the country,” she added.
