Tindy C, HBA 2012 – ‘Female Presenter of the Year’ Entry


My name is Tindy Chaggar (better known as ‘Tindy C’) and I present ‘Diva Fever’ on a Sunday, where I play Bhangra, Bollywood & Urban music. My show includes the latest celeb gossip, film reviews, regular features (such as Starsign & Random Fact of the Week), plus much more.

 I describe myself as a ‘Desi Girl’. ‘Desi’ usually means anyone who is from the Indian subcontinent – but doesn’t live there.Leicesterhas a very big Asian population – & there was no show geared towards Asian patients when I joined, hence ‘Diva Fever’ was born! Though by no means, do you have to be Asian to enjoy my show; as there is quite a cross-over & I keep the show bubbly, fun, light hearted & informative – which patients enjoy!!

 As well as the above, I do regular interviews with bhangra/bollywood stars, which I broadcast to our listeners. I also covered the Leicester Belgrave Mela in July 2011, where I chatted to the British Heart Foundation – so there is diversity.


About Tindy C

Hi, I'm Tindy C and through a substantial change in my personal circumstances I have found expression through radio and the written word invaluable. I am a lawyer by profession, but am now metamorphosing, as I realize that my pursuit of happiness lies not within the confines of a ‘stuffy’ job, but by having the freedom and encouragement to be creative. I have since 2006 been working at Radio Fox, based at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. This year at the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) Awards, my coverage of the Leicester Belgrave Mela 2011 won the Bronze Award in the Special Event Category. I was also honoured to be shortlisted – this year & last year in the Best Female Presenter category. This is a National Awards Ceremony covering the UK. My show at Radio Fox. ‘The Tindy C Show’ has 2 sections- ‘Talk’ & ‘Desi-Fever’. In Talk, I interview various people (including health care professionals, therapists, charities, other organisations & other inspirational people. I also discuss news items. In Desi-Fever, I bring listeners the very best in all things Bhangra & Bollywood – including interviews with the stars, great music, gossip, reviews (film, theatre, books) plus much more. I have also resumed my passion of writing and within my Blog you will find evidence of my random ‘rants and raves’, alongside excerpts from the Radio.
