Miriam Alete – Your ‘Croissant On Radio’ On Soundcity 96.5FM PH
Waking up every morning to the voice of Miriam Alete alias Mimi on Soundcity radio 96.5FM Port Harcourt is as satisfying as having croissant and coffee. The texture of Mimi’s voice and her presentation style, coupled with the informative and educative content she dishes out daily, is captivating. As someone who never seeks validation in the industry to ascertain her worth, her stocks have soared to greater heights.
“Life as a broadcaster has been interesting. It has been quite a journey, but I love it regardless of the challenges that come with the job. I have watched myself grow from scratch to where I am now. I am not where I want to be yet, but I am in love with the process. I have had many challenges during my early days as a broadcaster. From being sexually harassed by a superior to non-payment of salaries for months – It has been an experience indeed. I have always focus on the brighter side of things. It has been 7-years of being in the media space; I am looking forward to more years.” She narrates.
A native of Rivers State, she is a graduate of the University Of Calabar with a B.ED in Educational Technology and a Diploma in Personnel Management. A former employee of Sparkling 92.3FM Calabar as host of the Home-run show, in 2015, she began her broadcasting career presenting for Love world TV. 2017, she co-hosted the lunch hour show on Paradise 105.5fm Calabar. “Currently, I host the breakfast show called “What’s Up PH” on Soundcity Radio every day except Sundays. The show runs from 6-10 am” She said.
Outside the life as a radio broadcaster, what else do you spend your time doing?
Looking beautiful, Planning for my future, Podcasting. I have a podcast on Anchor called “A Breath Of Fresh Mimz”. It is basically about Lifestyle generally. I share some personal experiences of things that happen in our day-to-day lives. In the first ever episode, I shared details of how I was sexually harassed years ago by a superior in the industry. At least there I can pour my heart out, even though I still have to be careful because you will be shocked how things fly in Naija. I am glad to be a broadcaster and podcaster. I am thankful to everyone that has supported me from day one.
