It has on Friday morning been announced that Tbo Touch and Gareth Cliff have teamed up to launch a new entertainment company called Touch Central.
The grand announcement was made by Touch and Gareth at a swanky breakfast held at a floating sky restaurant.
Touch Central will become the country’s first ever 24- hour online music channel, which will be free to subscribers. The new online radio stream will have a major focus on local music.
Speaking at the media breakfast briefing, Touch said that the venture between him and Gareth is “the future.”
“We have the opportunity to create something amazing. Gareth and I weren’t friends. We saw each other in the hallway but I’ve been watching him and this is the future,” said Touch.
Touch added that he’s excited to make a jump of what he calls a “quantum leap.”
Touch will host the daily drive time show on Touch Central every weekday from 3pm until 7pm. The name of his show remains as The Touchdown.
Both Touch and Gareth hinted at a hot presenter line-up, which is made up of mostly female jocks.
Touch also hinted that international hip-hop bigwig DJ Khaled could be joining the platform to host a Saturday night slot.
Touch Central is set to launch in a month’s time, with a live countdown already set on the website.
