Carmen's first taste of radio work was answering the phones at 96FM's Community Switch while she was still at University, so after a career that's taken her to the Eastern states a couple of times over, she says it's great to be back home at 169 Hay Street. Carmen is an avid Fremantle Dockers supporter, somewhat of a foodie, and a self-confessed Bikram Yoga nut... but if you ask her about it, just make sure you have a spare hour so she can tell you about all the benefits!
