Brad Brown

Brad BrownRadio personality, Sports Journalist, entrepreneur and motivational speaker, Brad Brown has shown time and again that drive and persistence – and a healthy dose of cheek – can help you to make your dreams come true.

Currently the presenter of SAfm’s Sports Special on Saturday and Sunday Afternoons and a sports journalist for Supersport Blitz, Brad started out on campus and then community radio. A turning point came when he auditioned for 94.7 Highveld Stereo’s Hot Jocks talent competition, and didn’t make it through the first round but instead of going home, he got back into the queue to try again eventually finishing second in the competition! After working his fair share of graveyard shifts he started featuring on the station’s main line up, eventually hosting the afternoon drive. Early in 2012, Brad decided to pursue his sporting passion and joined Eye Witness News as their weekend breakfast sport anchor, covering sport across all four of Primedia’s radio stations namely 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Talk Radio 702 in Johannesburg and 94.5 KFM and 567 Cape Talk in the Western Cape.

In a similar show of sheer dedication and commitment, Brad has lost over 50kgs in the past few years and gone from overweight couch potato to multiple finisher of both the Ironman triathlon and Comrades Marathon. Not content with just making up the numbers Brad has put in hours of blood, sweat and tears and has become a fairly competitive triathlete. Not only has he been selected to represent Central Gauteng in the sport at the standard distance he recently finished eleventh in his age group at the South African long course championships in the half Ironman distance.
