Having grown up in an incredibly loving and supportive family, with parents that are still happily married after 33 yrs, and with a younger sister, Tandi who is really like an older, wiser sister to Bailey, it is no wonder she has ended up doing what she loves most…..a life in radio, as well as being a well loved SA personality!
Bailey started off studying a BA in Journalism through RAU with a bursary for her singing, but it was only after a bout of laryngitis, when her singing got put on hold, that someone, who ended up being RAU’s radio station manager, noticed her sexy husky voice and suggested she audition….and that was all Bailey needed to get totally and utterly hooked!
A year later, in 2002, Bailey joined Edgars Radio, doing some presenting at the Rand Show too, and after 3 years, joined 94.7 Highveld, only to join their Afternoon Drive Team in 2005 all the way through to 2012. Seven wonderful years came to an end in April 2012 when the Drive Show changed, but Bailey still freelances for Highveld. The biggest streaming / digital radio station, 2 Ocean’s Vibe offered Bailey her own show and she now presents “The Bailey Schneider Show” every Monday to Thursday from 2-3pm interviewing only the cream of the crop of both local and international celebrities. Bailey also hosts “The BFF Show” on Tuesdays with her real BFF Karolina Sky from 3-5pm. You can tune in to catch up on what BFF’s really talk about girls!
Bailey does a great deal of charity work, and recently joined me in giving back on Mandela Day at the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital in JHB!
