This week on the show Sat Mann speaks to BBC Asian Network Breakfast presenter Harpz Kaur.
From a young age, Harpz had a vision and a goal that she wanted to achieve through her music and media expertise and set off on a journey that would consistently take her to new heights. After persistence, commitment and determination, Harpz got her break through and was given a slot on her local Radio Station – Fever FM. Harpz fan base grew bigger and bigger due to the success of her hard work through her shows and reaped the rewards after being offered the drive time slot, which took place every Saturday between 6pm -8pm – “The Strictly Bhangra Show”. After 4 years of commitment at the station, Harpz took on the role of being an admin at the station as well as presenting the Breakfast show twice a week.
Her journey didn’t stop there.
After 6 years of being on Fever FM, Harpz then got the opportunity to host her own Urban show, on one of the UK’s fastest growing commercial online radio station “All Star FM”. Not only that, Harpz then took her skills and talent to the bigger stage and began to rock crowds in and around the UK as she took on Corporate Clientele.
Due to demand, Harpz has now established her self as a solo DJ. She has performed sets at The Alchemy Festival, BBC 1xtra Live Sessions & BBC Asian Network Live. She also featured on Nihals final show on BBC Radio 1 as a guest DJ. As well as keeping herself occupied in Radio, Harpz began her own Youtube Channel “DJ Harpz TV” – where she created a platform for her listeners to get to know her on a more visual basis. She used this channel to speak with artists within the music industry, which gave her the recognition she needed.
Harpz is a qualified Journalist, and became a finalist at the Asian Media Awards 2014 under the “Outstanding Young Journalist Of The Year” category. She has worked with some big, household brands in the commercial industry such as BBC Radio 4, Capital
FM, Metro Radio & 2BR where she acted as a News Anchor. Now Harpz presents the Weekend Breakfast Show on the BBC Asian Network [Saturday/Sunday 6am-10am].
