Redi revealed that Bob was generous with air time on radio as he gave even new comers time to work alongside him even on important shows like the Breakfast show.
She added that Bob Mabena did a lot of panel beating to everyone working under him until that person was a world class radio presenter.
Further more, Redi said Bob was kind and respectful to everyone. He also gave constructive criticism to everyone. She also said Bob was never threatened by anyone’s talent as he always elevated other people.
