Publisher's Synopsis

From campus radio to host of South Africas biggest youth breakfast show to pioneering his own online hub, Gareth Cliff has always claimed the headlines with his brand of strong opinion and whiplash wit. He has been suspended from the airwaves or crucified by his critics more times than he can remember whether for interviewing himself as Jesus or comparing Shaka Zulu to Cecil John Rhodes. Most recently, Cliff was fired by M-Net as one of the Idols judges after facing accusations of racism over the Penny Sparrow incident. He fought back, employing the services of the EFFs Dali Mpofu, and was reinstated. In Cliffhanger, South Africas controversial shock jock goes behind the scenes to give you a first-hand account of the highs and lows of the past two decades. This funny but brutally honest account includes: The Idols years, including the inside story of his fight to be reinstated earlier this year; Launching into the unknown the early years of CliffCentral; RIP Manto Tshabalala-Msimang; Competing to be top shock jock; 'Gareths Love Child; Smooching Julianne Moore in Hollywood; Almost meeting Justin Bieber.
