Anita revealed this in an interview with Francis Addo of NEWS-ONE’s adding that she accepted because of Bola Ray as according to her, he has “dream” and “vision” and understands what she is trying to achieve.
TV personality Anita Erskine was confirmed to have joined Star FM and she will be co-hosting the ‘Starr Drive’ show with Bola Ray. But she has stated that the decision to join the FM station was not an easy one
“Before I decided to come to Starr Fm, I had to do a lot of soul searching. Who am I now? You know I am 20 years older than I was when I started radio. How have things in my environment changed? And do I fit in that environment? Do I have something to say?
Do I have something to share that would allow our listeners to benefit? And I’m talking about Ghanaian, Africans in the Diaspora, because we are also online so I accepted it.
“It wasn’t an easy decision. It was difficult, in that, it is new territory in the sense that it is Starr but it wasn’t a difficult decision because I knew that radio ultimately was something that I wanted to do. I wanted to be a more typical media mogul sooner than later”, she said.
Anita revealed this in an interview with Francis Addo of NEWS-ONE’s adding that she accepted because of Bola Ray as according to her, he has “dream” and “vision” and understands what she is trying to achieve
“Bola Ray has a vision; he has a dream. You know, he fights for success and I am just that kind of person. He understands what I am trying to achieve and accomplish in my life as a wife, as a woman, as a professional, as an entrepreneur and all the things you can list” she stated.
Anita however admitted that she felt good to be back on radio after several years of absence and it was a good opportunity for her to ‘re-invent’ herself as she started doing radio when she was about 15 or 16 years.
”It’s been 10 years since I did radio, so this is going to be a fantastic opportunity to re-invent myself… This is my second time on radio in Ghana. This month marks 20 years since the first time I went on air. I went on air stealing time from other presenters, trying to get my voice out there. I was 15 or 16 years or so", she said.
When asked if she was still going to be on TV Anita said, “Yes, I am; I am still going to be on TV. Like I said, I want to be a media mogul. I still do have my show on Viasat One. I have a few shows on Metro TV as well. I am all over the place basically for all the right reasons, and radio is that beautiful part that completes me”.
