Paul Rotherham

His Story:

While many young boys dreamed of flying planes or putting out fires, Paul grew up wanting to be “the little man in the speaker”. This dream became a reality when Paul became well-known and much loved as part of The Rude Awakening morning show on 94.7 Highveld Stereo. He joined Jacaranda FM in 2012 and presented the successful “Weekend Special” commercial dance show, Sunday breakfast and the station’s biggest music show, The KIA Top 20 Countdown, until mid 2015. Following a four year stint with an online radio station, Paul joined the 939 Ekurhuleni FM team where he is currently presenting the breakfast show. Paul is hubby to Zina and Dad to Matthew and Jessica-Paige. He is a keen runner, a huge fan of LEGO and lover of Alfa Romeo and Ferrari. The Rotherhams have 7 cats, 2 dogs and a collection of Koi.

What inspires Paul:

I love immersing myself in nature and being surrounded by natural beauty, fauna and flora. This is one of the best ways to feel recharged and inspired! The crashing of the ocean waves, sound of the wind through a forest canopy or the simple wake up chirps and calls of the morning birds is always worth appreciating. Taking time out from the hustle bustle of city life always refreshes and inspires me
