Your host and presenters
Suga has made a name for herself as a pioneer for female radio personalities, having been one of the first female presenters in South African broadcast history. Over the years she has paved the way for so many aspiring female presenters along the way and continues to push the envelope on a daily basis. She is the first woman in Cape Town to host an Afternoon Drive Show and did so for 6 years.
Recently Suga obtained a Diploma in Food Preparation and Cooking. What do radio and cooking have in common? Nothing really, but Suga attests to the fact that the ingredients to her success lies in a tried and tested recipe of hard work and determination. Not one to rest on her laurels, SUGA is constantly reinventing herself as she goes through life as a single mother, media personality and qualified Chef.

For more than 10 years she has been bringing readers stories on protected areas and destinations off the beaten track. She’s a slow hiker, because she stops to admire the flowers, and her bush skills are a work in progress.
