Bharati Jagdish is much-noted for her insightful interviewing style. She spent the first 5 years of her radio career at the international arm of MediaCorp Radio, Radio Singapore International, analyzing world events through incisive radio programmes. She has travelled extensively and in 2003, she spent time in India investigating the secret of the country's tremendous economic achievements through interviews with India's most noted captains of industry. She also spent about a month in the US working on a radio documentary series on Muslims in America and how they were coping socially and politically in the post-9/11 world. The series entitled "A Question of Faith" won several awards including MediaCorp's Best Current Affairs Programme Award in 2007. Her sharp observations and ability to ask incisive questions has resulted in multifaceted programmes with bite.
For two years in a row, in 2007 and 2008, she was named Best News Presenter at the Mediacorp News Awards. Since being with 938 LIVE, Singapore's only news and talk radio station, she's hosted the evening show, "Express" and now hosts the highly-rated morning show, "FRESH!" which encompasses the station's signature call-in show "Talkback" during which she speaks with ministers, MPs, specialists and the public. Her ability to think on her feet and connect with the audience has resulted in many new listeners making "FRESH!" the show they wake up to.
Bharati also has a record of executing "live" coverage of important news-generating events like the recent General and Presidential elections with flair.
Her radio career has propelled her into the voice-over market as well. She is currently a sought-after voice-over talent. Her voice has been described as authoritative, sonorous and even mellow - a testament to her versatility. She's worked with clients such as Hewlett Packard, Spring Singapore, Housing and Development Board, Mindedge Academy and the Singapore Exchange.
Bharati's media experience extends to television as well. For two years in a row (2009 and 2010), she was the English commentator for the TV broadcast of Singapore's National Day Parade on Mediacorp's Channel 5 and is also the host of Channel 5's current affairs programme, "Singapore Talking".
As an engaging on-site host, she has been master-of-ceremonies at many events for the Ministry of Home Affairs, CMC Markets and the National Library Board among other clients.
