He was just 13 years old when he did his first show in radio! Since then he has been on air for approximately 8,000 hours as a radio producer and program director! His radio shows in Greece always engaged massive audiences according to official audience measurements and he has hosted almost all of the most significant current Greek performers on air. As a voice over artist he has given his voice in dozens of advertisements for television and radio but his biggest desire is to give his voice to an animation character of the big screen (you never know!!).
He loves cooking, playing board games/video games with his friends and worships feta cheese (he just can’t survive without feta)! Panagiotis is a true radio lover and every single person who knows him personally says that he wasn’t born for radio… radio was born for him.
