We are joined in the studio by radio and television personality, voice over artist, and motivational speaker Carol Ofori, in the studio. Carol has one of the most recognisable voices in South Africa, whether its on her radio top 40 chart show, or being the voice behind many of your favourite brand adverts, and she hosts Raising Babies, which is a SABC 2 talk show.
She began her interest for the industry when she joined her local campus radio station while at university, where she was a presenter and the DJ manager. She continued on her journey in radio by taking part in a learnership programme at Kaya FM. She then went on to become a reporter and news anchor for 947 and a reporter for it’s sister station 702. She ended up spending about 7 years at 947 hosting a number of weekdays shows from around 7pm to 10pm, at the radio station. Upon her departure from there, she went on to host “The Divine Edge” and “The Divine Edge Sunday Edition”, on Metro FM. After a number of years she left Metro FM and moved to join Kagiso Media at East Coast Radio, where she has remained.
Carol has now spent over 17 years in radio, which has led to her being one of most recognisable female voices in the country. Even though she is a journalist at heart, she recently ventured out to television and hosts Raising Babies 101 on SABC2.
