Our Team


On-Air Talent



Radhika Kaur Bhullar


A five-foot young adult who can’t seem to keep her opinions to herself. Currently channelling her spirit of debate and discussion into a law career while trying to get the dialogue rolling on your airwaves on the breakfast show’s hot take segment. You can find her either frustratedly reading a law book that looks too big for her, on a social media rant or on stage acting. The upside of her being only five foot is that no one takes her seriously when she pokes fun at her co-host, the downside for her is that no one seems to take her seriously when she’s debating or in court!

Putting her social media addiction to use, Radhika is part of the social media team.


Bhargav Joshi


You can call him B (for Bhargav of course, what else were you thinking?). He’s always hunting for the next adrenaline rush with Mt. Kilimanjaro, Mt. Kenya, skydiving and parasailing already ticked off his bucket list. He’s not only a natural on radio but takes on dancing, singing or acting – evidenced by his Best Emcee award at TAWAA 2020. You can catch his sometimes questionable dance moves on the visual broadcast of his show, The Morning Fix!


Amandeep Jagde


A master’s degree holder in architecture, a chess enthusiast and a flat earther… are some of the things he’s not. Amandeep Singh is actually a Marketing degree graduate that has been performing stand-up comedy for a while. Join him on The Drive Thru show where he can be counted on to cause a ruckus and ensure you get home in stiches (the right kind).

Away from The Drive Thru, Amandeep is part of the social media creative team.


Jeet Renjit


Energetic, vibrant, eccentric, borderline outrageous, happy and rugged – Jeet is a combination of wit and (momentary) knowledge with a dash of charm. Having thrown away his ACCA qualification for a position behind the mic and camera you wouldn’t want to miss out on his hilarious commentary.

He knows how to uplift your mood after a long day at work or in traffic. You can catch him every weekday on The Drive Thru!


Nikita Dass


Nikita the Radio44 energizer bunny. She joins the team with good vibes and brilliant ideas.

Taking a look at her playlist you can catch her jamming to Bollywood hits, Arabic jams, and some Bongo tunes.

While the average person laughs about 13 times a day, Nikita exceeds this average exponentially. You can always count on her laugh to light up the office.

Nikita currently works on the production team at Radio44.


Behind the scenes



Riya Pattni- Production


Riya ditched teaching young children for her job at Radio44. Little did she know that the creative craziness that goes on at Radio44 is comparable to her nursery classroom.

Riya ensures a seamless visual broadcast is maintained 24/7.

You can also catch her giving you the news in the evenings.


Fabian Othuon- Production


Law student that insists on calling himself ‘The resident young person’ despite visibly being ancient, a lover of sports and all things active as a facade for his inner geek. He maintains a general sense calm and quiet spaced out with short bursts of unexplained madness. Video editor by day and Dothraki translator by night also doubles as Minion (yellow) pigment analyst and Sirir’s life coach, therapist. An advocate for the mental health of AI.

You can rely on Fabian to give you the news update in the mornings!


Hermina Patel- Station Manager


You might recognize the face, as our station manager has been on your TV screens reading the news, or you might recognize the name as she was the chief editor of The Asian Weekly. Her experience goes back to when she was just 14 where she was in control of her own radio show!

Taking from her sky-diving adventures she’s ready to jump into this new wave of change.

You’ll find her in the office meticulously juggling the presenters, sales and whatever else our team throws at her with a smile. Legend has it that she never sleeps and is constantly pepped up for the day!


Directors



Arjun Ruzaik- Director


He’s been there, done that, got the tee-shirt, and then decided to get the tee-shirt again. Meet Arjun Ruzaik, Director of Radio44, a man who faced his fear of heights by learning to fly a plane, is wisely on only two family Whatsapp groups, replies to everyone on his official Facebook Page and is learning how to use filters on Instagram so that he can look even better than Govinda.

A lousy cook, even though he says he has brilliant videos of him cooking mutton curry playing in his head, Ruzaik is a brilliant mind and brings his expertise and experience to Radio44.



Heman Jadavji - Director


Aspiring mountain climber (but not wearing this attire, obviously), a jeweller by profession who has qualified in gemmology, Heman is a fun guy behind that very serious face with zero social media skills, but we are okay with that because he plays the violin really well.

He has been running his family business for over 23 years, and in case you are wondering how an introvert like him got into radio, Heman knows exactly when an opportunity is worth being invested in. His vast experience and success in business attests this.


Nisha Hirani - Director


Never a frown, always smiling, getting on with it, a sentimental soul, Nisha comes to Radio44 with an impressive CV and excellent coffee-making skills. She’s probably the reason why there’s always a sense of non-morning people actually managing to grunt at each other with just a first sip of her famous coffee.


Ashish Patel- Director


He smiles and the world smiles with him, otherwise he looks quite serious. Being a director is serious work but that doesn’t mean he will not have fun. With vast experience in the media industry, Ashish will be an integral part of the Radio44 backbone. He has enviable koroga skills, is very artistic, creative, and is more observant than anyone.
