Lenisha Pakkiri : Sport Presenter on The Weekend Liftoff, The Morning Masala and Beyond The Game

About Lenisha: I am the female voice of Lotus FM Sport. My love of sport can be attributed to my parents as they supported me through my extra-curricular sporting activities whilst growing up.I also spent many days with them since childhood learning about and watching sport on television or, gratefully, going to watch live matches when possible.I have a general knowledge of most genres of sport and being on radio has always been my secret passion.

My dream is to go to Wimbledon to watch a live Grand Slam match.

Radio Experience And Progression: I am the weekend sports presenter on Lotus FM and have 3 years of experience working as an on-air sports presenter at the station.Out in public, I’m recognised by my laugh and I wish to continue bringing listeners my fun and bubbly take on sport.

Qualifications: I matriculated from Woodview Secondary School and completed my tertiary qualification at the Durban University of Technology.

Accomplishments: Being the sports presenter on the award-winning Morning Masala breakfast show.

Hobbies: Apart from my passion for sport, I enjoy exercising and being involved in animal charities.

General Facts: 

If you want to know about my personality, I’m a combination of Steve Irwin (as I love animals and would do anything I can to help an animal) and Kajol’s character ‘Anjali’ in the film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. I’ve been told by many friends and family that I’m like ‘Anjali’, during her college years in the film.  

I also love to dance and I enjoy playing pranks on my father!
