Faith Daniels to head up East Coast Radio’s news team

Posted by radio On January - 25 - 2016

Seasoned radio and TV journalist, Faith Daniels, has been appointed to head up East Coast Radio’s news team.

 

fdan2The 39 year old newshound, who was born in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, has extensive experience across media platforms. Daniels anchored the 1pm news on SABC 3 and served as editor in the broadcaster’s Johannesburg newsroom.  She has also worked at SAfm and Talk Radio 702 in Johannesburg as a journalist, producer and anchor.

 

Armed with this vast experience, a firebrand personality and a deep understanding of KZN’s media landscape, Daniels is up for the challenge, saying she is looking forward to leading East Coast Radio’s vibrant, dynamic Newswatch team.

 

Enhancing the station’s multi-media news offering is on top of Daniels’ to-do list as she settles into her role as Head of Radio News at Kagiso Media. She is also looking forward to spending more time in KwaZulu-Natal. “I just love being able to start calling KZN my home away from home.  East Coast Radio has long become a firm favourite to listen to. It’s awesome to now be able to put faces to the many amazing voices.”

 

“Greatness inspires me,” says Daniels, who is mum to 2 year old, Luke. “From the person who silently keeps an entire community going on a meagre salary – to the excellence of Christiane Amanpour in what she contributes to the world of journalism…and the many women (yes women) who change the patriarchal society we live in, bit by bit each day.”

 

Daniel’s advice to aspiring journalists is simple. “Have your own voice, have an opinion, question the status quo. As journalists, our stories are nothing special without the ordinary voice. If we cannot hold government, business and everyone else accountable through the ordinary voice, then we are failing ourselves.”

 

Daniels lists being able to travel South Africa as one of the highlights of her career. “There is no better learning tool than travel. South Africans remain my favourite people in the world. My people. I cannot imagine living anywhere else.”
