Sports mad Jeremy Harris to liven up your drive time

On Monday, August 7, #Drive326 on Heart 104.9FM will welcome a new member to the popular afternoon drive show – well-known sport anchor Jeremy Harris. Jeremy is no stranger to the airwaves. He is one of the most experienced sports anchors in the country, who most recently completed an eight year stint with KFM.

Harris’s career spans more than two decades, having worked at all three major Cape Town radio stations, as well as a short stand in stint at Johannesburg based radio station 94.7. He has a vast sporting knowledge, having covered sporting events both locally and internationally. These include two Olympic Games, the SA 2003 Cricket World Cup, three Rugby World Cups, the SA 2010 Soccer World Cup, The Open Championship, The Austrian F1 Grand Prix and five SA World Rugby Sevens tournaments, to name but a few.

Harris also adds MC, guest speaker, television and commercial voice artist and brand ambassador for several blue-chip brands like adidas, Taylormade, Speedo, Arabella, Biogen and Westin Cape Town to his impressive CV. He does not only present sport, he lives it. In his spare time he is a keen golfer, and has completed several long distance open water swims and Xterra off-road triathlons.

“I’m really chuffed to have Jeremy on board. He will inject some sport energy into the space and will be a great team player with Suga and Jo-Dee,” says Denver Apollus, Head of Programming.

Managing Director at Heart FM Renee Redelinghuys shares Apollus’ sentiments. “We look forward to Jeremy joining the Heart FM family. We believe that Jeremy is a perfect fit for the drive team and look forward to the new ideas and insights he brings.”

* Tune in to #Drive326 every weekday between 3pm and 6pm.
