It’s a dream she’s been working hard to achieve and now, it’s happened. In the coming days, TV/Event Host , Berla Mundi , will be introduced to Ghanaian listeners as a member of the lineup of the rebranded , urban and youth friendly Live FM.
“I’ve been trying to get on radio for a while now, if you recall… I don’t know if you ever tuned into Y FM when Jay Foley was on for the Saturday Morning Show. I used to go on there with him, so that was the whole idea; the plan was to try and get me on radio. That was what Jay Foley had been working on for a while because he thought I was such a phenomenal TV presenter, I have a great voice and I could succeed on radio as well.
So when he confirmed his move to Live FM, he got in touch with me and told me about it and how he would want me to move to Live (FM) along with him because he believed that it’s a big platform and I will do well there so that’s how it started. But before that, we had been talking about getting on radio for a very long time.”
Even though she is new to the world of radio, Mundi believes that she can make an impact as a radio presenter.
“I will try my best to bring out something unique so the people will recognize me and my work. I believe what I have should make me big as well and so I would not be in the shadows of the others”
Why Live FM?
“I believe that for a station as new as Live FM and for someone who is practically new on radio like myself, the growing up … we will all grow together. There is a lot I could learn, they have the best team as well so you learn from the best.
Who wouldn’t want to go to Live FM? It’s like the biggest place to work now in terms of joining another platform or being on another platform (as a TV Presenter), so Live (FM) was from the start, the place I wanted to be.”
She is keeping the name of the program she will be hosting under tight wrap “I’m not sure if I can start talking about it yet because from what I know it hasn’t been made public. Nobody’s belt has been made public yet so I’d like to keep quiet about that until my bosses are ready to make it known.”
Why should anyone listen to your show on Live FM when broadcasting officially starts?
” Well, I got on GhOneTV… I didn’t start Rhythmz . Rhythmz existed already but when I joined Rhythmz with BlaqBoy and when we introduced Rhythmz International with Jason and Regina, we were all able to put our minds together and come up with something good enough to make people want to watch. And right now, I don’t think you would want to challenge me that Rhythmz is one of the most watched shows in Ghana. We actually even won an award for that, so for someone who is working with a team that has won an award, getting on radio with some of the best people as well should give you enough reason to want to tune in and listen to Berla Mundi.”
