Hey guys! I’m Shehnaz, nice to meet you.
So, I’ve always loved radio and all things music, especially R'n'B and hip-hop. I attended my first concert in 2005, and since then I’ve somehow been to shows in the USA and Europe (I'm quite sure my bank account hates me for that one) but I honestly love how radio and music has the power to bring happiness to so many people.
Thursday nights are quite literally the highlight of my week, what else compares to playing Coventry and Warwickshire the freshest Urban music around? See what I did there? But having been born and bred in Leamington Spa, it's a real privilege to be on air in my hometown and i'm grateful for the opportunity.
Outside of Fresh, I’m also an award-nominated journalist and writer. You can catch some of my work on Yahoo! News, The Independent, HuffPost and MTV. I pretty much live and breathe news, especially entertainment, and i've even been lucky enough to meet some of my favourite artists, *drumroll* - such as Beyoncé, Rihanna and Drake. Trey Songz once thought he knocked my earring out during an interview a couple of years back – It’s safe to say I haven’t looked at hoop earrings the same way since!
Funny story, but one time, Beyoncé stopped her concert and personally sang happy birthday to me? And Rihanna apparently follows me on Twitter and Instagram? Both are stories for another time, so you'll just have to tune in to find out. Nothing is as exciting as being a presenter at the awesome Fresh with this amazing team though ;)
Thanks for reading! Tune in every Thursday night from 7PM for yours truly - I'll try my best not to waffle on too much,
Catch up soon,
