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 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.
