Jean Jordaan joined the community radio station, MFM 92.6, the same year that he graduated in BA Humanities, majoring in Afrikaans & Dutch and Psychology, at the University of Stellenbosch, in 2009. In less than a year Jean worked himself up, joining the station’s full time line up and in 2011 he anchored the Drive show, Monday to Friday. It was also at MFM that he did two professional voice-training courses with Playing Mantis and in 2010 and 2011 he also represented the station on a monthly basis on MK’s Studio1 and MK Live. In April 2010 Jean put his health and mental state at risk by embarking on a live 92.6 Hour Broadcast to raise money for the Community Committee at MFM 92.6. He presented shows on air for just over 4 days non-stop, taking 5 minute breaks every hour. Jean went without sleep for 4 nights and spoke every 15 minutes on air. After 4 nights and 4 days he finished the broadcast and raised R50 000 for the Vlaeberg community outside Stellenbosch. In 2010 Jean received the “Most Improved Presenter” and “Most representative of the MFM Brand” awards at the annual MFM Awards and in 2011 he received “Presenter of the Year”. At the end of July 2011, Jean started as co-host on the live music TV show, Studio1 on MK, when he bid radio farewell to join an exciting new venture in live TV. In September 2012 the channel also approached him to host MK Flits on a weekly basis and he is currently still the host of the show. He also helps to produce the show by compiling the content of the show and writing the script. He works as a freelance writer having written the script for the MK Awards, where he was also one of the presenters in both 2012 and 2013, and he has written quite a number of promos for television. He is often seen on stage as a MC at music festivals and shows around the country. He has done a number of voice-over work for television. Jean has work on the production side for numerous projects and is currently working on the live television production chatNOU on kykNET NOU as the content producer.
