Bubbly radio and TV personality, Kriya Gangiah will be livening up the screens for every racing fanatic in her new role as host and presenter of SuperSport’s popular Absolute F1 show. The gorgeous twenty-something infotainment professional landed herself the lead presenter role on the show that is broadcast every Wednesday at 7:30pm.

Every week Gangiah will be joined in studio by gurus in the Formula One and racing discipline that includes the experienced Bashobonke “Tschops” Sipuka, who competed in the formula Volkswagen class in Germany as well as Saloon car racing in Malaysia and super truck racing in South Africa.

“I have always had a passion for cars and gadgets so landing the lead presenter role for Absolute F1 is a dream job! Not to mention being part of an incredible brand like SuperSport and rubbing shoulders regularly with the ultimate petrol heads – who also happen to be great guys! I can’t wait to share the latest in sport and topical racing content with SA’s passionate formula one fans. Exciting times are ahead and I am delighted to be a part of The Champions Family,” gushed Gangiah.

Kriya Gangiah is also currently a TV presenter on a popular eastern culture and lifestyle show, MELA which airs every week on Sunday between 1:30 pm to 2:30pm on SABC 3. And if that wasn’t already enough to keep her busy, she is also part of the Jacaranda FM team where she hosts The Chamberlains Top 20 show every Saturday between 10:00am to 12:00pm.

Kriya Gangiah is the ultimate mix of beauty, intelligence and enthusiasm. She is currently livening up Gauteng, Limpopo and Mpumalanga airwaves on Jacaranda FM and in 2016 was back on our home screens as a Mela TV show presenter. Another highlight in 2016 was Kriya’s position as Digital Lead for Jacaranda FM at Kagiso Media and later on in the year she was recognised as ‘Glamour Women of the Year’ in the media category.

This stylish twenty-something DJ, MC, actress and model attracts a lot of media attention and has not only been a popular E-TV presenter and a powerhouse Highveld Stereo DJ but was also a producer and presenter for popular online radio station Ballz Visual Radio’s show ‘The Business’. Kriya’s passion for media and the digital space was further cemented when she worked as a Senior IT Audit Consultant for five years at two prominent South African accounting firms. In 2010 Kriya made her silverscreen debut in a South African produced movie “The Race-ist”, alongside the likes of Craig Palm, Ian Roberts, DJ Fresh and Jonathan Pienaar.
