Katy Katopodis - Radio Personality, Motivational Speaker and Mc - Johannesburg

Born and bred in Gauteng - I absolutely love JHB and think I would be a very different person if I had grown up anywhere else. I am however completely passionate about the ocean and hope to one day live near the sea. I've been with Primedia since 1996 and 702 since 1997 and love every minute of it. I work with the greatest news team in South Africa. Next to my amazing job, my family is my life. We are very close and I really love spending loads of time with them. Reading, cooking - not to mention eating (chocolate is my weakness), friends, yoga and my home are just some of my passions when I'm not at work or with my family.

"If she doesn’t know about it, it hasn’t happened yet"

Katy is one of South Africa’s most credible journalists.

Katy has a nose for uncovering the real story behind the story.

Katy loves making a difference.

We’ve heard her presenting Eyewitness News on Talk Radio 702 and 567 Cape Talk.

She’s featured in numerous magazines, including The Media and The Daily Maverick to mention a few.

We love her because she’s not afraid to ask the tough questions.

Katy Katopodis is one of a handful of editors who sets the country's news agenda.
As the group editor-in-chief for the Eyewitness News team, which runs across all Primedia-owned stations as well as their recently launched Eyewitness News website, she leads some of the best broadcast news journalists in the country, keeping abreast of every breaking news story both here and abroad and filling in the blanks for the rest of us.

Katapodis started her career at a Greek community radio station in Bedfordview and was snapped up by Primedia in 1996. Since then, she's interviewed everyone from Muammar Gaddafi to Bill Clinton and was the last journalist to interview ANC stalwart Walter Sisulu before he died.

But it was her clash with the Forum of Black Journalists (FBJ) that placed Katapodis in the news herself. In April last year the Human Rights Commission upheld her complaint against the FBJ for holding an Africans-only news briefing with ANC president Jacob Zuma. Chances are it's not going to be the last time Katapodis makes headlines. -- Tanya Pampalone
