Sam announced on air and posted on Facebook this morning, “For the past few months I’ve been living the best of both worlds, being on the breakfast show of the city’s hottest station and running a booming coaching business. Unfortunately, I’ve come to a point where, if I am going to show up 100%, I must let one go. During lockdown, I connected with so many people online, I ran support groups for people traumatised by Covid, and I realised how much that means to me to be able to help people see the light when it is very dark. Now I have clients all over the world in different time zones, and helping people grow and change and improve their lives has become my first passion. I have loved everything about working at Hot, the people here, the music, the positive, never-say-die attitudes of the Hot Cares family and I will miss it. But I am still the lucky one, because I will hear them every day.”
HOT 91.9FM’s Managing Director Lloyd Madurai said “We have loved having Sam on the station these past three-and-a-half-years but understand and fully support her decision to pursue her coaching career. We are very grateful to Sam for her contribution to the station, not only as a presenter but as part of our family. We wish Sam all the best in her venture”.
