How did you get into radio?

I started volunteering on weekends at a community radio station (based in Westburry, Johannesburg) while I was working a nine-to-five job. I then moved to working for an online radio station reading news for the breakfast show. After that I joined 919FM reading weekend news. I was later offered weekday shift, reading for the breakfast.

What do you love about working with 919?

The feel good music and the people I work with.

If we say Joburg, what comes to mind?

Where are you based, and what’s the route you travel to get to the station?

I am based in Westdene. From my place I use the Melville route leading me into Rosebank, then Illovo.

What do you get up to when you’re not doing your show / working at 919?

If I am not teaching English online, I am watching movies/series.
