Break into Mainstream Radio with KISS FM Presenter Swarzy Macaly’s Top Tips

Swarzy Macaly is a Kiss FM radio producer and presenter who’s widely recognised for her energetic radio shows and addictive podcasts. Her natural ability for conversation and undeniable charm has served her well over the years making her a favourite with the KISS FM crew. Back in 2016 she was crowned the winner of the UK station’s ‘KISS Chosen One’ competition and has since gone on to become a regular host with a Saturday morning breakfast show as well as regular slots during the week, interviewing headline names such as Craig David and Tinashe and become BBC Sounds official young voice.

We were recently joined by the East Londoner to discuss all things radio including her top tips for breaking into the mainstream as well as her career journey so far. If you’d like to learn about breaking into radio more extensively why not enrol on a Radio course with us? Our Radio alumni include the likes of Madam X, Monki and more.

During the video, Swarzy discusses the beginnings of her career in radio and how she broke into the industry. She exposes exactly what the most important parts of being a presenter and producer are detailing her key tips for breaking into the industry and maintaining a respected presence. These include everything from holding valuable conversations, relaxing your guests (and yourself), knowing your audience and appealing to them, transitioning between your songs, making and keeping contacts and keeping the vibe alive. In addition to all this, she discusses her podcast “The Litmus Podcast”, drops some useful hints on titling, recording and structuring your own podcasts, using social media the right way, volunteering and plugging your content.
