John Walland comes from a Sales and Marketing background in the pharmaceutical industry I decided to follow my passion and joined 5FM as a Freelance Presenter in 1989.
Following on from this I joined 5FM as a Sports Presenter working on the afternoon Drive Show, organising and presenting all the Sporting Interviews on shows like 'Nashua Sports Trax' I was also the sports anchor on SABC's 'AM Today' breakfast show for a year.
After 14 years with the SABC, John Walland left 5FM to join 94.7 Highveld Stereo and worked with Alex Jay as his Sport's Anchor. I did numerous sports reports from live races including the Cape Argus Cycle Race, the Rugby World Cup, the Pick 'n Pay Cycle Race and many more.
