Celebrated and veteran radio presenter James Onen Fatboy has been replaced by comedian Patrick Salvador Idringi after serving 88.2 Sanyu FM for over two decades.

Fatboy was the voice of the station's radio program "Sanyu Breakfast" from Monday to Friday, 6-10am. He also hosted "Alive and Kicking" on Saturdays 6-10am.
His replacement, Patrick Salvador Idringi took over with immediate effect on Thursday morning by hosting his first show. According to Salvador, he said he took up the job out of goodwill and because he was called upon because he is the Ruparelia Group ambassador.
