On Air Personality
Mathapelo describes herself as passionate, driven and ambitious.
Born and bred in the Eastern Cape, Mathapelo’s journey in broadcast began 7 years ago reading news at a Port Elizabeth community radio station. It was here that the broadcasting bug bit and since then she has managed to build a strong sense and understanding of news and current affairs.
She has had the opportunity to build her career working at multiple newsrooms across the country, taking up various positions including being a television news anchor. Her agility helps her to keep up with the fast-paced news environment, allowing her to always have her finger on the pulse of developing stories.
Mathapelo believes broadcasting is not just about her. It is about using the platform to make a meaningful difference.
She is a true believer at heart that using her voice for the marginalized and overlooked will eventually help create the change our world needs one word and one bulletin at a time.
