The “girl next door” wishes she was more like Stacey Norman. Her razor sharp wit and out-there observations will have you cackling with laughter and clamouring to keep up. She’s stylish, sussed, sassy and has the ear for a great playlist. She’s also dynamite on screen.
Stacey is a born performer. Even as a child she was taking part in – and winning – singing competitions in Cape Town malls.
At just 16 years old, she participated in a KFM Youth Day talent search and, with her quirky humour and dulcet tones, she won, securing a weekend show on the station. She soon secured a weekday slot and began doing daring digital content, like the Instagram series #AskStacey, which was revived in 2018.
After seven years at KFM, Stacey moved to Johannesburg to host Stacey Norman Live, a brunch-time show on 947 that grew a dedicated and engaged fan-base.
Late in 2015, she secured her first TV job, as V-Reporter on the debut season of The Voice South Africa. In this role she became the singers’ best friend and helmed the show’s digital content, delivering hilarious interviews with the talent and coaches.
She impressed in this role, and when season 2 was announced she moved into a new role: as co-host alongside Lungile Radu. This, coupled with her expressive expertise on social media, have led to her profile sky-rocketing.
Parallel to her radio and TV careers, Stacey is an accomplished MC, using her acute ability to connect with audiences on stages from 947’s Joburg Day to corporate events. She’s also caught the eye of numerous magazines, appearing in Marie Claire’s Naked Edition, Elle mag, Seventeen, Cosmopolitan, as well a cover story for Essentials.
Stacey left 947 in 2017 and has since secured Weekend Breakfast on East Coast Radio – catch her between 6 and 10am on Saturdays and Sundays.
Stacey is also a socially conscious human, and has devoted much of her time in the past couple of years supporting Dignity Dreams, an organization that provides sanitary wear to underprivileged girls so that they can stay in school when they’re having their period.
