The new year al­ways comes with new plans and res­o­lu­tions, with some peo­ple look­ing for­ward to re­build­ing their ca­reers, while some aim to travel and oth­ers plan to fur­ther their stud­ies.

This year is an ex­cit­ing one for ra­dio and TV per­son­al­ity Hulisani Ravele.

Ravele, 30, started the year with a bang by an­nounc­ing she had joined pop­u­lar Joburg ra­dio sta­tion 94.7 as a week­end break­fast show host on Satur­days and Sun­days from 7am to 10am.

Ravele was pre­vi­ously with Lim­popo’s Capricorn FM and left the sta­tion last month.

She and her co-host, Lusky, went on air for the first time to­gether yes­ter­day and she said it felt like “go­ing on the anaconda roller coaster at Gold Reef City”.

“That an­tic­i­pa­tion and anx­i­ety be­fore the first link and then it was just a thrilling ride from there on. Lusky and I ac­tu­ally sat on the floor in the studio for 30 min­utes af­ter the show just to take it all in be­fore we got un­der way with our de­brief and re­flec­tion on the show,” she said.

Ravele, who has been on ra­dio for a decade, de­scribed her new gig as a mile­stone.

“It’s a phe­nom­e­nal re­ward for all the years I have been work­ing on my ra­dio ca­reer. I plan to work hard and do ex­cel­lent work at 94.7.

“I ac­tu­ally don’t have the words to de­scribe how I feel, I am be­yond happy. It’s an amaz­ing sta­tion that I have al­ways wanted to be a part of. So it feels a lit­tle sur­real that I am here now,” she said.

Hulisani Ravele is the new co-host of ra­dio sta­tion94.7’s week­end break­fast show.
