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!
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!

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.
