Podfather and Co-Founder of CliffCentral.com - Gareth Cliff took the leap from traditional radio in May 2014 with the launch of CliffCentral.com, pioneering online media with a unique hybrid of live streaming, podcasting and video. Gareth is one of South African radio's most irreverent radio and television personalities with a career spanning over 20 years. He kicked off his radio career at campus station Radio TUKS in Pretoria; later “graduated” to 702 Talk Radio where he replaced the legendary John Berks on the 702 Breakfast Show in 2001; and three years later joined national youth station 5FM where he remained as the breakfast show host before launching CliffCentral.com. Gareth was a judge on South African Idols for 11 seasons, hosted “The Gareth Cliff Show” on Mnet and most recently, “So What Now?” On eNCA. He has won numerous awards for best radio and television personality; has written two books and regularly hosts events both as an MC, speaker and a conference facilitator both locally and internationally.
