Capital wants Fareed back…

Capital wants Fareed back to their stable – a sales person privy to the details tells me – Capital knows Fareed is damn good for business, but Fareed is saying he can’t come back and still WORK with Tony who happens to be the reason Fareed quit in the first place. Tony who? You ask…well Tony is the little bitch who is in charge of Direct Sales at Capital.

My source says…

‘ Tony Gatheca, was determined to get rid of Fareed when he was there and actually succeeded.  Tony was booking  client interviews on Capital in The Morning, and Fareed and Seanice were having to give up interviews with prominent people to make room for clients that just wanted to blab about their products on the extremely highly rated show.  (remember when that crap would come on air)   Fareed complained on many occasions and even raised the issue in meetings, saying the listener deserved more….so, he  subsequently refused to do the interviews towards the end and walked out of the studio on numerous occasions.

This also caused mingi tension between Fareed and Seanice due to her being in control of programmes and not putting her foot down.   Tony one time told us  that he would make sure Fareed left,  it worked and FK stormed out of the station.

On news that Capital wants to bring back Fareed, Tony has been talking to everyone including CK in a bid to stop the comeback cause he knows if it happens – ameisha!!

Media Madness has over the last few days tried to talk to Fareed about the issue and jana – he sent a one line email

‘I have  no comment about the Tony story, and I’m very happy at  XFM.

    Tony Gatheca aka potato head (a name from his daystar days). Im thinking it could be direct sales that keeps capital afloat thus pursuing that strategy aggressively. As for Fareed akae huko XFM since he already states in his one liner that he is very happy.

    Ai, Tony is doing his job! And very well, it looks like! It’s his job to get his clients as much airtime as possible. It was Seanice’s job to control what went on air! It was also her job to make sure her presenters were happy! So the finger here should be pointing at Seanice, not Tony.

    That is so true, there is day day, during the high school strikes where they began by saying that was the issue in the morning show. Alas, they brought some guy to blab about how a school like Hilcrest(sic) or Peponi was the ideal school bla blah blah. Really crappy.
