This week we find out what's really going on behind the selfie with Sherlin Barends, radio presenter on KFM 94.5's #KFMMornings, which was announced as best commercial breakfast show at the recent Liberty Radio Awards.
Just one of Barends’ impressive number of selfies.
1. Where do you live, work and play?
Live: Vredehoek. Work: Green Point. Play: The Cape Town CBD or wine farms.
2. What’s your claim to fame?
Radio presenter on #KFMMornings, weekdays from 6am to 9am.
For example, my most powerful on-air moment was with Onna and his mom, Pinky. We helped the young boy after he was shot in the mouth by police and secured a job for his unemployed mom. Credit to our sponsors and amazing listeners who are always keen to help!
6. Describe your average workday, if such a thing exists.
I wake up at 4am. I don’t like leaving the house before I’ve meditated and had tea. After the 6-9am show there’s usually one or two meetings. This is followed by gym and admin. I try to be in bed by 10pm, but evening events don’t always allow for it.
I use weekends to refuel to deliver during the week.
7. What are the tools of your trade?
I am, as a personality. I use my voice and face. Social media is also a fantastic tool.
