A “new” voice to Central South Africa, Lesley Piet, was born in Cape Town on 15 January 1991. After matriculating from Malibu High School in 2009, she studied Journalism at Rosebank College. After working at Ackermans, Shoprite and even a call centre, Lesley made her start at campus radio station, MFM 92.6 in Stellenbosch where she completed a three year stint. After a foray in retail radio for Pep Stores - Feelgood FM, producing CapeTalk and Traffic at Heart FM and Smile 90.4 FM, she now keeps road users informed on OFM, the sound of your life!
For her the best thing about radio is that it lets you engage with people from all walks of life.
When she’s not behind the mic, Lesley loves spending time with her fur baby, a Boston Terrier named, ‘Tuesday’, as well as hiking, catching up on series, and watching YouTube tutorials.
While she would probably roll her eyes at this description, there is definitely truth in the adage that ‘dynamite comes in small packages’. Lesley, the second eldest of four sisters, definitely has the gift of the gab and will quickly win heart with her absolute honesty and sass.
Her favourite quote? “Work in silence; let your success be your noise.” And, it is this ‘noise’ that will be resonating throughout the airwaves for years to come.
