Canadian radio and television host Lizy Triffo was born in Chile and raised I Brazil. Entrepreneurship and storytelling were skills that Lizy had expressed interest in at a young age. She always pretend to interview people around her while sticking a fake microphone in their faces. These clues, however, were not enough of an indication to Lizy when it came to her early career choices. She studied Dental Hygiene for one year in Brazil and later moved to Regina, Saskatchewan were she earned a job in the telecommunications industry.
Although this career kept her more than financially stable, Lizy felt that she was missing out on her true destiny. What held her back? she would often ask herself. Lizy then realized, “Sometimes people don’t follow their dreams out of fear that they may not be good enough.”
Now, in her early 40’s Lizy has cast all her fears aside and followed her childhood dream. For the past three years The LizyT Radio Show has been a platform for singers, songwriters, coaches, business owner, TV celebrities, child actors and many more. The radio show allows Lizy the platform to report on the latest global and international news and feature music requests by listeners around the globe.
She created a following and a kind of community, each captivating interview starts off with a simple catch phrase created by her husband: “Tell me who you are, what you do, contact info, anything new?” This is all Lizy needs to start a great interview and conversation.
Thus far, interviewing Wedding SOS host Jane Dayus Hinch has been one of Lizy’s fondest moments. When it comes to all her interviews, Lizy says, “I like to give 150% of myself, sometimes it feels like I’ve run a marathon. In the end, it’s not about me, it’s about them.” This philosophy pushes her to do whatever she can to promote her guests. Perhaps it is this dedication and passion that has allowed her to have over 13,000 listeners worldwide and a Top 20 radio show on Blog Talk Radio. Lizy also was the recipient of the 2015 Absolutely Fabulous Women Community Helper Excellence Award for her commitment in helping charities and non-profits.
