Bruce Whitfield presents the multiple award-winning “The World at Six” on Talk Radio 702 and 567 Cape Talk each weekday between 18h00 and 19h00. Bruce is regarded as one of South Africa’s leading financial journalists and was named “Financial Journalist of the Year” in the 32nd Sanlam Financial Journalist of the Year awards. “The World at Six” focuses on the day's breaking business news stories, market analysis and opinion.

Bruce’s broader journalistic achievements have been applauded in three tightly contested, consecutive Sanlam competitions. His work in radio, television and print has also been recognized by financial services group Citadel and global banking group Citibank which named Bruce its South African financial journalist of the year. His award saw him attend a two-week intensive financial journalism course at the prestigious Columbia University in New York with other country winners from around the globe.

Free State born and Grahamstown educated, Bruce cut his teeth in journalism at Talk Radio 702 in the run up to the 1994 democratic elections. Shortly after that he worked in London at Reuters and independent radio stations for four years before returning to South Africa where he developed a taste for business and financial journalism.

In addition to his radio duties, Bruce covers banking and insurance for weekly business magazine Finweek, writes an investment column for men’s’ lifestyle magazine Best Life and presents a range of investment focused programs on Summit TV.
