We love them, we admire them and we appreciate their skills and arts. We are even closer to them than we are to a few people we know as we get to listen and interact with them on a daily basis. Among other things these individuals have managed to help us relax, informed and entertained us with their cool and calm voices; in addition to their great sense of humor which they display on a day to day basis whenever they are on air. The society appreciates them; the youths love them; the kids look up to them while the adults admire them.
And when they are off air, they are the toast of events. Corporate bodies engage their services as Masters of Ceremonies for social and marketing events. These events are usually sold out as people want to place a face to the voices they have fallen in love with on radio.
