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 a sports anchor for Eyewitness News, covering four radio stations 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.

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 double Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenges, the Double Century, 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.
