Doreen is a God-fearing woman and proud to be a Mukiiga. She is a free spirit, more like what you see is what you get – take it or leave it. She loves to laugh and joke away. Doreen can sometimes be skeptical and self-aware, sometimes too cautious about herself, and quite concerned about her appearance.
On the whole though, she is humorous, kind and one who empathsises with people. Doreen is a lover of beauty, very trusting and loves to chillax, sing, swim, read, watch movies and party. She may come off as tough and quiet but she is friendly so all you have to do is say, “hello” and you will get a good conversation going. You only need to catch her on the Saturday Breakfast Bonanza from 6.00am to 10.00am to find out.
What most people don’t know is that Phyllis is an accountant by profession, turned radio presenter because of the love she has for radio. So although numbers is what she studied, she decided to settle for what she loves. After a few years as a radio presenter, she left to do business but one year down the road she was drawn back to radio.
Phyllis loves music. One of the reasons she really wanted to work at KFM was because of the kind of music the station played. KFM was one of her favorite radio stations as a listener. Which is why she is super-happy to be a presenter, taking you through the midmorning on K-Connect from 9.00am to 12.00pm. It makes her feel good to realise that in life, we can get what we want if we put our passion and mind to it.
Phyllis is a loving person, formerly shy but because of the nature of her job is now outgoing. She loves having fun, and sleeping a lot as it makes her feel good! She also loves watching series, cooking and baking cakes.
She likes looking beautiful and is obsessed about keeping her waist small. Her favourite food is g.nut sauce mixed with dry fish and kalo. If she were food, she would want to be roasted g.nuts, crunchy and tasty. The lady is also obsessed with g.nuts!
93.3 KFM’s K-Drive host James Peterson is a lively, out-going guy with a bizarre talent for rubbing people the wrong way.
What most people don’t know about James is that he started out as a rapper in his teens in Riverside County, California where he was born. One thing led to another and he’s been “in-total-control” of the airwaves… Seriously. You need to listen to him from 4.00pm to 6.00pm every Monday to Friday. As for the celebrities he’s interviewed, there are many! These include the likes of Rihanna, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kiefer Sutherland (Jack Bauer) – probably one of the hardest interviews he remembers doing, so far).
James has also interviewed politicians like, Jacob Oulanya, Kizza Besigye, Olara Otunnu, as well as local and regional musicians Kevin Wyre, AY, Nazizi, Peter Miles, Cindy and Angella Katatumba. When James is not behind the mic, he is helping his dad Simon Peterson with audio production at their Radio Active Production studios. James also dabbles in a bit of writing for The Daily Monitor.
So what drives James? Well, a passion to talk and be heard. But that does not beat his passion for music, so much so that he would rather talk less and play more music (which he views as a form of escapism from the daily troubles of the world).
Outside the radio world, James loves movies, and there is a special place in his heart for video games. It’s often said he will probably die with a controller in his hands. He also is pretty much addicted to electronic gizmos and a desire to find the ultimate expression of freedom and creativity.

Although he studied a Bachelors of Commerce degree at Makerere University, Patrick did not get into radio by mistake. He knew he wanted to be a radio presenter right from childhood. Even when his parents forced him to study Commerce, he knew deep inside that that was not where he belonged. And so he found his way, behind the mic in the studios where he is now happy. Patrick loves sports, so much, sometimes it scares him. For real. He watches a lot of sport, both on TV and the games on the local scene. Basically his life is incomplete without sports.
What most people do not know about him though, is that he loves music and movies almost in equal measure (as sports). He watches lots of movies and series, and listens to lots of music as well (he has a huge music collection). He is also very interested in current affairs, politics and business which is why he can’t go to bed without a dose of BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera and Sky News.
He is a naturally happy person and always wants to make people around him happy. Some people say he is funny but he believes he is just a happy man. He is however really shy, especially around people he doesn’t know. He is a social media freak too and you can’t miss his presence on all the platforms, @PatriqKanyomozi on Twitter, patriqkanyomozi on Instagram and Patriq Kanyomozi District. Lastly but most importantly, he is a God-fearing person.
