Meet Brandon Baatjies
6 – 9am
It was clear from a very young age that Brandon would end up doing something related to sport as a profession after having tried his hand at any sport he came across with cricket being his first love! His first foray into the sporting world started as the Manager of Injury Prevention in rugby for the Chris Burger Petro Jackson Playersfund.
Brandon then made the move into media and broadcasting as a radio sports presenter and has been lucky to work at some of the Cape’s top radio stations and national television stations and newsrooms in various capacities including sports editor, reporter, producer and anchor.
Some of his career highlights include being the official voice and announcer of the 2010 FIFA World Cup at Cape Town Stadium and the Confederation for African Football (CAF) 2014 African Championship. He also covered the 2015 Super Rugby final for Media Works network in New Zealand on radio and social media and still continues to work with many corporate companies and sports brands at events.
He also runs his own digital marketing business where he focuses on promoting small and medium businesses online and getting them more exposure and business leads.
