And this week, the station announced there was a mutual agreement to part ways as Phat Joe pursues other ventures.
Known for his wry sense of humour, it would appear the host of the drive-time show was too blunt for his listeners.
A registrar at the commission said that Phat Joe had about 53 complaints against him in 2016 and 24 in 2017. In one incident, the station was fined R30 000 for his comments about Down Syndrome.
While some listeners loved him and were sad he was leaving, others said “good riddance”.
