Loftus Marais

kykNET Verslag in gesprek

Content Editor | Inhoudsregisseur
Loftus Marais studied literature and has worked in book marketing and live morning television. He is interested in two of the most incompatible things: poetry and politics. While appreciating the rush and urgency of live news television, it is a constant challenge for a skittish nerd like him.

Loftus Marais het literatuur studeer en het al in boekbemarking en regstreekse ontbyttelevisie gewerk. Hy stel belang in twee dinge wat byna onversoenbaar is: poësie en politiek. Hoewel hy die snelle vaart en dringendheid van nuustelevisie waardeer, is dit dikwels ’n uitdaging vir ’n skrikkerige bleeksiel soos hy.
