Punam always wanted to be a singer/songwriter, so after graduating with a Marketing degree from University in the UK, she decided to pursue a music career.
However - her mum told her she also needed a proper job, so she applied to Marketing departments at various Radio Stations. One station realised that she was also a singer and asked her to try her hand at Presenting. She wasn't very interested in becoming a Presenter, but they encouraged her to give it a go.
Three weeks later she was Presenting the Traffic news to 20 different Radio stations around the UK. She was then head hunted by the BBC, and was asked to Co-Present the breakfast show with BBC Birmingham.
After two years she decided to go back to University to study a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism, and then eventually returned to the BBC as a News Journalist.
Whilst at the BBC she received an email which went to her Junk box. Instead of deleting it she decided to take a quick look. The mail had come to her by accident or maybe fate, and was advertising a Presenter's job at Dubai One TV. She decided to apply for it and sent a self produced showreel via email. A few days later she received a reply from Dubai One TV, offering Punam her own show - which we all know as 'Out & About'!
