Moneyweb launches MoneywebNOW podcast

Moneyweb has announced the launch of a new daily morning show, MoneywebNOW, with Simon Brown. The show aims to offer South Africa’s business and investment community the latest financial and company news to prepare them for the day ahead.

According to Moneyweb, the 20-minute show is live streamed via the Moneyweb website or mobile App between 06:30 and 06:50. A full show podcast will be available to download at 07:00 for listeners who missed the live stream.

Brown is known across various business platforms in his capacity as an investor, trader and founder of the financial educational platform Just One Lap. “I’ll be getting to the day’s big stories before the day even starts. Listeners can expect a tight show, full of fun with three guests in twenty minutes,” says Brown.

Brown says that he is passionate about helping people understand money in all its aspects — from saving to investing — making him a veteran in the field.

MoneywebNOW will feature:

  • the day’s top local and international stories
  • market analysis
  • insights on stock picks, and
  • key company news with guests ranging from top CEOs to industry experts.

“The world around us is changing at a phenomenal rate and it is critical for all to stay informed of the latest news that will affect their pockets,” says Ryk van Niekerk, editor at Moneyweb.

“This is an exciting new offering and a first for South Africa. MoneywebNOW with Simon Brown will be the only comprehensive business radio show in the morning. Listeners can either listen to the live broadcast or download the podcast and listen to it on their way to work,” adds van Niekerk.

The show is live streamed via the Moneyweb website and a brand new Moneyweb app, which is available in the Apple and Android app stores.
