27, Ra­dio Pro­ducer How did you end up in ra­dio? I stepped into the world of ra­dio at 18 and I re­ally saw how im­por­tant it was for the in­dus­try to work with lo­cal Uni­ver­si­ties to grow tal­ent. Ra­dio is tough, and you need to be fierce ly pas­sion­ate to sur­vive. How did your first job shape who you are now? My su­per­vi­sor at my first in­tern­ship in­stilled the im­por­tance of per­se­ver­ance, dis­ci­pline, and taught me that half-baked work is never an op­tion. Tell us how you see your­self in five years. Well, I head the team that cu rates ev­ery­thing you hear on Fly FM. I would still see my­self in ra­dio for sure! I love my craft and hope to al­ways in­no­vate to keep ra­dio rel­e­vant to the times. The most re­ward­ing thing in your work? When lis­ten­ers call and say we’ve made his or her day. It’ s amaz­ing how we can make an im­pact even though we don’t know the per­son.
