Antoine Mensah is moving on as host of LIVE FM’s mid-morning show LIFESTYLE CAFE after two years. Friday, January 13, 2017 will be his last day in charge of the show on the Adabraka-based station.
In a series of Tweets Monday Afternoon, he informed his followers on Twitter about the decision adding “there’s a lot more to look forward to. ”
Antoine Mensah’s radio journey personifies what it means for someone’s career to come full circle.
Mensah’s career started in 2010 hosting 233Live, an entertainment magazine show on Saturdays on the then VIBE 91.9 FM which is now LIVE FM. He hosted the show for some two years.
During his stay at the station, he was asked to sit-in for the regular host of Traffic Jam (the station’s drive show). His performance impressed Station Executives who gave him the job as the regular host of the show.
He hosted the station’s flagship show whilst studying for his first degree at the University of Ghana.
“I had the liberty of learning on the job which I did because I was passionate about it, going in and out. I got a lot of negative comments but I loved where I was, the room it gave me developed my talent and the opportunities it brought my way.” reminisces Mensah.
In 2013, Micheal Cooke, owner of VIBE FM agreed on a partnership with Dream Holdings, leading to a name change to LIVE FM. The new team relocated from Ring Road Central (Pyramid House) to Tesano (Dream Holdings Building).
Mensah stayed on as a member of the ‘new’ station, hosting a number of the station’s flagship shows. He won ‘Worker of the Year’ during the station’s end-of-year-awards in 2014.
When EIB Network took over the management of the station in early 2015, he was one of the talents asked to stay on by the new owners.
In July 2016, he was appointed Programmes Director of the Adabraka-based station.
Mensah currently hosts Lifestyle Café, the station’s mid-morning show on weekdays and ENTLive, an entertainment magazine show on Saturdays.
