Hey guys! I’m Shehnaz, nice to meet you.
So I’ve always loved 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 all over Europe – quite sure my bank account hates me for that one.
Radio has been my passion for as long as I can remember, but I really caught the bug whilst participating in student radio at university – Haven’t quite been able to shake it since!
Thursday nights are literally the highlight of my week, what else compares to playing 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.
Outside of Fresh, I’m also an award-nominated journalist. You can catch some of my work on Yahoo, The Independent and HuffPost. 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 Rihanna, Jay-Z 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? Nothing is as exciting as being a presenter at Fresh with this amazing team though 😉
Tune in every Thursday night from 7PM for your latest urban hits, and some old school R’n’B classics – complete with lots of bad jokes and complaints about the weather, from yours truly,
Catch up soon,
