Ika joined the broadcasting industry straight out of college. She was a news reader on TV before going full steam with radio. She became a part of Astro’s pioneer team in 1996 and helped set up Lite in 1996, before launching it the following year. She stayed on the airwaves (with different stations) until 2015 before “retiring”. Dabbled in voice-overs and as a dubbing artist on the side after radio.
