14/35 LISA CHAIT – South African stories

Airing September 2nd-8th on Inspiring South Africans with Heather de Wit and her guest

Lisa Chait, who is a Broadcast Journalist, spent almost 16 years in radio, first presenting news and

a weekend music show on Cape Town’s Good Hope FM and 10 of those years as a Host on Cape Talk 567FM.

Some years ago, for 6 consecutive years, she also lived on a tower for 10 days and nights at the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town, raising over R1.2 million (approx $94,000 US dollars) for the prevention of child abuse.

In 2009 Lisa presented ‘I Am Woman Leap of Faith’ a formidable South African television series, which features the lives and Leaps of Faith of 52 remarkable women exploring how they stepped into brand new territory when faced with life’s greatest challenges – see Link below.

With her current project, a video television series ‘It’s Africa’s time’, Lisa believes that Africa is indeed the new frontier. The series is taking her all over Africa into the lives, different cultures and business models in Tanzania, Malawi, Ethiopia, Liberia, Mauritania, Senegal, Kenya, Botswana, Mocambique and Zambia.

More recently Lisa founded a unique family heritage video, audio and written memories project called Life Stories, which sees her interviewees talking across time to future generations, whom they will never meet.
