We had the opportunity to catch up with Shayna Marie on her journey, inspirations, and goals.

Shayna Marie started out in radio around 8 years ago and emerged through different stations on her rise to Capital XTRA, naming underground station Pulse 88 and Westside where she built on her passion and honed her craft.  

Broadcast played an influential role in her early life, with her father in radio and then growing up with presenters including Dotty and Jenny Francis paving the way as female talent. Their effortless, true-to-themselves style inspired herself and her peers. She values highly the support women within the industry share for one another.  Shayna Marie also enjoys looking back at how she experienced radio when young, and recognising the role it plays for millions around the country, as part of their daily routine, and the part she can now play in reaching people through the medium.

Outside of radio, you’ll find Shayna Marie DJ-ing on weekends. A self-described social butterfly, she enjoys spending time with friends and expressing her love of music. Whether that’s clubs, bars and festivals. She also acknowledges her love of fitness, which she describes as the balance she needs in her life. Enjoying the likes of spin and pilates classes. 

And how do you stay motivated with lots going on?! Shayna Marie shared that she’s passionate about being able to look back and know she had a great time. She encourages people to stay true to themselves – knowing their goal, their path and their purpose.


We took the opportunity to ask who we need to be listening to this year. Check out Shayna Marie’s suggestions over on Spotify 👇
