Brandy Scott to return to Dubai Eye 103.8

Brandy Scott is set to return to The Business Breakfast on Dubai Eye 103.8 on May 22 , following a two year absence during which she returned to her native New Zealand in order to study for an MA in Creative Writing. Having previously co-hosted the show for seven years, between late 2006 and mid 2013, Brandy has also worked for Radio New Zealand as a Senior Producer as well as for Emirates Today as a Features Editor. Upon her return, she will be joining existing presenters Malcolm Taylor and Richard Dean, to form a new line-up with the aim of providing more credible content, analysis and features as well as chat.
“I’m very excited to be returning to The Business Breakfast,” says Brandy, “I’ve loved my time in New Zealand but I’ve missed my other home, Dubai. That’s the high-class problem that comes with being an expatriate: you belong in too many places. But I feel very lucky to have the chance to comeback to what Richard Dean once rightly called “the best gig in the world” – The Business Breakfast.”
