Katy Katapodis

Katy is a member of the South African National Editors' Forum and was recently awarded for her excellence in the field of journalism by the Lyceum Club of Women. A journalist who is always in search of a good story, she believes that it is a reporter's responsibility to report accurately, fairly and credibly. If the sentiment sounds familiar it's probably because you have heard it at some point on the radio. Katy has been editor of Talk Radio 702 and Highveld Stereo Eyewitness News for the past seven years. She leads a credible and successful string of journalists and is committed to mentoring young, new reporters. She has never shied away from controversial stories or volatile situations and has found herself in the crossfire on more than one occasion. She has interviewed high-profile personalities and politicians such as Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton.
