Gareth Cliff is one of South African radio's most prominent personalities. He is founder and president of (host of “The Gareth Cliff Show” ) and MNet Idols judge.

In May 2014, Gareth took the giant leap from traditional terrestrial radio to the future of internet and mobile with the aim of creating the pre-eminent “infotainment” online content hub.

Gareth kicked off his career at Radio TUKS in Pretoria in 1998 and

graduated to 702 Talk Radio as a producer while he was still studying. It was here that he was given his first major break in radio where he attracted a lot of attention for his irreverence and intelligence, replacing the legendary John Berks on the 702 Breakfast Show in 2001. In 2003 Gareth accepted an offer on 5FM where he remained for ten years and hosted the breakfast show for seven years.
