E FM Showgram VS Yes FM Morning Show

Ever since the departure of Mark from Yes FM and the subsequent relaunch of E FM with Mark as programmes manager there has been some debate regarding the two morning shows which are now separately handled by the former co hosts.

It looks like that there has been no loss for the Yes FM Morning Show which has now adapted to include Shehara and Ross. They have not felt any great reduction in fans and they have also ramped up the give aways to keep listeners tuned in. The present E FM Showgram is much better than the previous morning show on E FM but it still has a lot of room for improvement. No doubt they have attracted listeners who are avid Mark fans and also by great give aways however it seems that Mark & Lenny just do not complement each other. Mark's comments at times leave Lenny speechless and clueless. The problem may be the different styles that they portray. E FM better start thinking of a new co host for the Showgram and they should try out Brad Stevens since Brad and Mark would be a better combination. Lenny does a good job on Sentimental Sunday and E FM should make use of him for shows of that nature. Hopefully the management of E FM would consider a few changes that would improve the station further. We are sure that there are some quality DJ's who are doing some job hunting after the closure of ABC Radio.

With Christmas round the corner, E FM will be broadcasting from Crescat from tomorrow (December 1st) onwards until December 24th and they are planning great give aways. Yes FM is keeping its plans under wraps and they will probably unveil it on monday and promise to match and do more than what others are doing and according to todays Morning Show they say they will do it first. It clear that competition between E and Yes is hotting up and as long as the listener benefits it is great for the industry.

Overall it seems that in the battle between Yes FM and E FM Morning Shows there has been no clear cut looser and winner. Each show has its own unique element and also of course room for improvement. It is the one who is willing to make changes and improve themselves that will emerge the leader.

Yes that's true E FM transmission is only limited to CMB limits but they do say they have extended up to down south!!!!!

Also if any of the english speeking channels would bring back SUN FM's NON-STOP friday that would be great!!!!!

E FM can be heard clearly in & around Kandy & Kurunegala, on 93.2.

Its ok in Galle & Matara areas on 104.5.

Also their webcast has the best quality out of all the stations, especially YES FM.


YES FM will be broadcasting from ODEL, staring around next week.
