Doug Anderson Media Profile #TheVoiceOnWheels

Radio:

My journey in the media and more specifically Radio began shortly after completing a Radio Presenting Course at On Cue Communications in 2004.

I joined Community Radio Station, Radio Today (1485AM). I initially started off producing and presenting my own disability talk-show called Ready, Willing and Able on Sundays 12noon – 13:00. One of my colleagues at Radio Today gave me the nickname of "The Voice On Wheels".

A few months down the line I also produced and presented afternoon music shows 12noon – 15:00pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and then I was asked to do a music show on Saturdays 12noon – 15:00pm as well.

I was responsible for sourcing guests and scripting my show. I was with Radio today from November 2004 – December 2006. The on-air system used by Radio Today in studio was Genesis.

I joined SABC national Radio Station, Radio 2000 in January 2007 and I am still with them.

Amongst other things, I get to oversee every show, I script and voice promos, I script live reads, I conceptualize and draw up the execution plan on air for Station Competitions and Promotions. Unfortunately this meant that I no longer had a radio show BUT I had my time on air, now I get to enjoy what goes on in the background of running a radio station.

In 2008 I was asked to be a specialist sports presenter for the entire duration of the Beijing Paralympics for SABC 1 and SABC Sport.

Believing it.

The reason why we choose not to choose is FEAR OF FAILURE.
The fear of failure is a result of lack of belief in you.
The lack of belief is as a result of you not choosing to control your thoughts.
