With a career spanning over a decade in broadcast radio, Ginni has become a distinct voice in podcasting.
Moving to Australia from Sri Lanka when she was two years old, Ginni was shy and timid, in her first weeks at school and didn’t speak at all. It was only through the encouragement of her teachers and best friend that she found the confidence to speak up. Ginni studied Media and Creative Arts at La Trobe University in Melbourne. One summer break, she answered an ad for a trainee scheme at Joy 94.9 FM
. Ginni wanted in, but only as long as it was behind the scenes! Jump-cut to one month later, and Ginni was firmly in front of the mic… and loving every minute. Hosting two prime time morning shows on Joy FM, The Hump Day Crew and Rise Up Radio. During this time, she brightened the morning commute for thousands of listeners in Melbourne and later appeared on LA Talk Radio.
When Ginni first visited New York, she fell in love with the city’s energy, and the unusual synergies she found there between arts, culture, and creativity. It inspired her to take a fresh look at her career. She loved everything about radio – the people, the creativity, the intimacy – but she also loved new media and tech. How could she unite these two passions?
