Cupido entertains loyal listeners on the radio as the host of The Weekend Special on GoodHope FM, she is also an experienced TV host, emcee, and voiceover artist.

She has made a significant impact in the digital space, creating engaging content alongside household and global brands.

“Being afforded the opportunity to wake South Africa up every day is a dream. I feel so honoured to take on this chapter; every step in my career has led me to this moment. I’ve spent the last 9 years ploughing the broadcasting fields, so to speak and now it’s harvest season!” says Cupido.

“I’m so looking forward to sharing laughs and heartwarming conversation with the rest of Mzansi and bonding with Expresso’s seasoned professionals Carl, Graeme, Ewan, and Ryle and of course the effervescent Zanele!”

Zoe has been a bright light on the show, bringing warmth, authenticity, and passion to her role and the Expresso team bids her a hearty farewell on her journey to Australia with her husband.

“I’m going to miss my Expresso family immensely! Those watching the show, those on the show and those who made the show. My entire TV career started with Presenter Search, and I have never looked back. It was a privilege to grow up in front of our South African audience, and saying goodbye is bittersweet. Thank you for all the wonderful years Expresso and S3… and I can’t wait to come back and visit” shared Brown-Anderson in an endearing farewell.

And while it’s sad to see Brown go, the show’s team are excited about Cupido’s participation. Maritha Greenland, Commissioning Editor of Expresso Morning Show says she is enthusiastic about the new addition to the family.

“Carissa will be a welcome addition to the Expresso family. Her warmth and spontaneity will fit in well with the rest of the team.”

“I’ll be the first in my family to do something at this level and I’m always reminded that this isn’t even about me, it’s about those that will draw inspiration and encouragement from the beautiful work I get to do,” says Cupido. “I’ve spent some time with the Expresso family and know that going forward we will get the country set up on the right foot to tackle every single day. I can’t even contain my excitement to get started!”

The Expresso Morning Show looks forward to welcoming Cupido as she adds a vibrant new energy to South Africa’s mornings, weekdays 6-9 am only on S3.
