More about O'Neil

Host of the new enticing Breakfast Xpress show, every weekday morning on Lotus FM. As a multi-talented radio and television presenter, I am a familiar voice
on the station, having previously hosted, arguably the most successful weekday morning show in the history of Lotus FM - O'Neil in the morning, as well as The Connection and Morning Masala shows over the weekend.

About O'Neil: In my 20 years of radio experience, I have successfully carved my own niche in the media industry and also managed to scribe a path into the
highly competitive print media industry. I am a firm believer of the adage “Matha Pitha Guru Deivam” which has assisted me in achieving success while balancing my time between family, spirituality and career.

presented a huge motivation to get behind the microphone. I started my radio career in the year 1998 and haven't looked back.As host of O'Neil in the Morning, I conducted the first radio broadcast live from India for the African Continent in 2007, subsequently changing the style of Prime-Time Radio on the station.

I was also a presenter during the 2010 Soccer World cup and ICC World Cup 2011 as well as the IPL. Some of my favourite radio moments are the many CSI campaigns that
I conducted, including the "Save Renuka Sunflower Fund Drive" and collecting school fees through listener donations for learners at Lotus Primary in Chatsworth, amongst others.

General Facts: One of the mantras I live by is ‘’Keep the Passion” which motivates me to live life to the fullest, making indelible memories to last a
