Seasoned financial journalist and multimedia broadcaster, Michael Avery, is relaunching, on 5 September, his prime-time, hour-long business radio show, Classic Business, on Fine Music Radio.

Michael has developed a reputation for insightful and in-depth research combined with a vast network and two decades’ experience to bring expert commentary to bear on the breaking and evolving business stories of the moment.

A formidable force in the business media landscape, Michael reflects on the business affairs of the day in his weekly Badger column, published in the country’s premier business newspaper Business Day. He also edits a quarterly private equity magazine, Catalyst. His online show entitled Business Talk on, reached 1.5 million views in just over a year.

Michael said, “Following the demise of Classic 1027, there is only one obvious home that marries an audience which has cultivated tastes in music and, similarly, refined needs when it comes to depth and specialised business discussions, with a quality, established business show, and that is Fine Music Radio.”

Fine Music Radio’s station manager Eon de Vos said, “We know that Michael Avery is the perfect fit for Fine Music Radio. His weekday market reports are most informative and well received by our listeners. We are also delighted to welcome our headline sponsor Alexforbes.”

From the traditional focus areas of investment planning to wealth and market commentary, Classic Business will demystify a range of pillar topics that underpin the South African economy and inform our daily lives. You can look forward to in-depth and accessible business discussions with the experts in their field.

For listeners outside FMR’s broadcast reach you can listen to Classic Business by downloading the FMR app, available for free on both Apple and Android platforms. FMR is also on DStv audio channel 838 and can be live streamed at
