Emerging broadcaster Margarate ‘DJ Savvy’ Savanhu says she is determined to use her slot on Heart & Soul (H&S) digital radio to initiate a wide range of conversations that many relate to but may be uncomfortable with.
Titled Relatables, the thrilling first-of-its-kind show airs on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6pm to 7pm and Saturdays from 11am to 1pm.
Relatables came about as result of realising that there are so many issues to talk about and so many people can relate to many issues either through empathy or shared experience,” DJ Savvy told the Style on Thursday.
“We all have that relatable story and Relatables provides a platform for discussion and sharing these stories.”
The bubbly presenter also recalled how hosting a show on the fastest rising tele-radio in the land had been an eye-opening experience and fulfilment of a childhood interest.
“I think at the back of mind I wanted to be in this industry because when I was younger I used to pretend to read the news in front of the mirror,” said Savvy, describing H&S as the perfect home for her to launch her career in media.
“Heart & Soul is brand new and fresh, I like being involved in the growth of new things because I think there is a lot to learn from situations like that. They have a different reach and they have used social media and the internet to their advantage (so) it’s happening, it’s new, that excites me.”
Although she started off as a radio personality and content producer, she has stretched into news reading from 4pm to 6pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Meanwhile, her goal is to touch more different lives regardless of age or gender and possibly inspire hope where it is lost or proffer inspiration where there is none through applicable discussions.
“In the short term I hope to achieve an engaging audience to allow for grounds to share their relatable stories so as to normalise talking about taboo or delicate topics of conversation,” she said.
