Born and raised in the India, Evita decided that radio was her calling at the age of 12, much to her family’s amusement. She started off her radio career in 2012 working at a classical music station in Melbourne and then went on to work with a few online radio stations in India. She then spent three years at India’s first and longest running international radio station, starting off as a producer and then going on to host the breakfast show. Armed with an infectious smile and bubbly personality, she brings her own brand of sunshine to the sunny land of Dubai and joins Tim and Faris on Heart Breakfast on Heart 107.1
1. What’s your favourite question to ask someone?
Do you like pizza?
2. Answer that question.
Heck yes! I’d eat it everyday if I could.
3. Song on repeat.
This changes every few weeks, but one song that I never tire of is Ronan Keating’s Life is a Rollercoaster. What can I say, I’m cheesy!
4. Teenage crush on any musician/band.
Like every girl that grew up in the 90s, it was the Backstreet Boys, Westlife and NSync. Also, Chris Martin for a while.
5. Biggest pet peeve.
People that cut in line.
6. Truth or dare?
Gosh, truth. Every time. I’m a wuss.
7. Life motto.
SO many! Live and let live. Do whatever it is that makes you happy, as long as you’re not harming anyone else. Life’s way too short to worry about other people’s opinions.
8. I can’t live without…
My phone. It’s always glued to my hand, and I’m one of those that will download every app there is and open them all often just to see what’s happening. Not ideal, I know, but it is what is is. Oh also, coffee. And pizza.
9. Best concert ever.
Has to be Coldplay in Melbourne in 2012. They’re one of my favourite bands and getting to see them live was a dream come true. It was a hot summer night in Melbourne, I couldn’t feel my feet after a point and I lost my voice l, but it was oh so perfect!
10. Radio love affair began… in 2002, when I first heard an international radio station in Bangalore. I was so fascinated when I heard these presenters chatting and talking and playing all this fantastic music. I went “What is that job and how can I do that for the rest of my life?” Of course, when I told my parents they laughed and asked me to find a career I could actually make a living from. That turned out well, didn’t it? 🙂
