Radio Presenter


Momtaz's radio career kicked off in student radio. She was Chair of University Radio Falmer, the station for the University of Sussex. As well as being on the senior team, she hosted a weekly music, and chat show called 'Lipstick with Veg.'

This led Momtaz to having a show on local station Cable Radio in Worthing which she hosted while completing a OCNR qualification in Radio Production at BBC Sussex Radio.

Later and back in London, Momtaz hosted a Saturday morning Arts show on One Harmony, a global reggae station from 2015-2017. It featured special guests from the world of arts including film, theatre, books, spoken word, dance, poetry and crafts – including demonstrations live on the studio web cam, the show had an international audience.
