Ika is the latest addition to Capital FM.
ONE of Malaysia’s most lovable voices, Ika Kamaruzzaman, is back on the airwaves as she joins Capital FM, Malaysia’s only English radio station for women. The vivacious radio veteran can be heard on Groovedown (Mondays to Fridays, 8pm to midnight), a show reserved for relationship talk, and designed to be a safe and soulful haven for women.
The mother of a three-year-old has an impressive 12 years' experience in radio, having entertained Malaysians in her last post. She then took a five-year break to focus on her family.
“We are excited that Capital FM has managed to draw such a talented force like Ika back to radio,” general manager of Capital FM Lynette Ow said.
“She is one of the original female gems of the radio industry. Ika’s a professional with lots of work and life experiences, and a woman who has clear priorities.
“She understands that good music and meaningful conversations make for a winning combination for Groovedown, which is a great way to wind down after a busy day.”
Since the show’s debut in December 2011, Groovedown is popular amongst Capital FM fans for its R&B beats and advice columnist format where listeners pour in with their most intimate relationship questions, ranging from issues on trust to co-dependency, and others.
Here, Ika is more Soul Sister than Agony Aunt, and helps women navigate through taboo topics, social etiquette and any other issues that make for a good night’s conversation.
“I’m really excited to be part of the Capital FM family. I think it’s a great platform for women. The five-year break I’ve had has given me the opportunity to grow as a woman, and I now have a lot more to offer and share,” Ika enthused.
