Pippa Hudson

Philippa (Pippa) Hudson completed her Honours degree in English at the University of Witwatersrand.

She trained in radio news at Johannesburg’s ABC Ulwazi broadcasting school but her on-air career started in 1998 as a news reporter at Classic FM, and a year later she moved to Cape Town to join a commercial radio station where she was later promoted first to News Editor and then to Station Manager in 2003.

Hudson opted for a short break from radio to raise her two young children, and during this period, developed a successful freelance business as a journalist and corporate writer. She was lured back into radio in 2008 by the opportunity to work at CapeTalk/702 as part of the Eyewitness News team.

“I have always considered these stations to be the premiere radio news suppliers in South Africa, and the opportunity to get back on the air and be part of this dynamic team was one I relished,” she says. “It is a privilege and an exciting new challenge for me to fulfil the role of lunchtime host.”
