Congratulations To The Traffic Guy - 30 Years Of Radio and Happy Birthday!
'It's been an amazing adventure from day 1', says ECR's Traffic Guy as he celebrates 30 years on air.

It's also his birthday today so he has more reason to celebrate.
His first traffic report was in 1984 for the then Radio Port Natal (which went on to become East Coast Radio). At that time he was a traffic officer with the Durban City Police.
Fast forward 30 years and JVB is one of the most recognisable voices on the radio. More than 1.6 million people tune in to hear his traffic report so that they can safely navigate traffic to get to work/school/home.
Johann Von Bargen is also a wealth of information and full of anecdotes. He also has a huge female following.
