One of Mzansi's favourite radio voices, Thando Thabethe, was nominated for a Liberty Radio Award in the Commercial Afternoon Drive Presenter category.

On top of that, her show, The Thabooty Drive got a nomination as well (in the Commercial Afternoon Drive Show category), and although they missed out on these awards, Thando is still as happy as can be with her job and career.

She has been in radio for more than a decade (which is hard to believe because she looks so young!) and has been rocking our airwaves.
