Michelle Borel (born 13 April 1983 in Trinidad and Tobago) is a radio personality, television host and producer. Her voice is known for its sweet, yet sultry sound and as a result has been used to launch popular local nightclub The Living Room, and other well supported brands and events like Temple of INK, Digicel, Unit Trust, Pizza Hut, Francis Fashions/ Shoe Locker, Seacrets and The Auto Guru among countless others. However, she's more than just a smooth 'easy to the ears' kind of voice, as those who can track back twelve years to 1998 may remember Borel as a 'sound gyal' with Rapid Response sound system. Later she left to form the first all-female sound system in Trinidad and Tobago... Zephers, which she later gave up to pursue a solo career.

Schooling and introduction to media[edit]

Borel started her schooling at Dunross Preparatory, Westmoorings. In 1995, she moved on to St. Francois Girls College, Belmont after what was previously known as Common Entrance. At St. Francois Girls' College she played an active role in many of the school's clubs (drama, chess, language). It was at st. Francois Girls College that she got her start in broadcasting. A teacher at the school being impressed by hearing Borel's voice on a demo cassette suggested that she hosted an upcoming school event. After that, she would host all school events, which led to her being one of her country's and the Caribbean's prominent female voices as the VOICE ID of several radio stations, and DJ's.

Radio and TV[edit]

Michelle Borel wet her feet at 96.1wefm in 1998 and continued gaining experience in her field at HOTT 93, Heartbeat 103.5 (radio for women) and currently is back at her home network (Trinidad and Tobago Radio Network- 96.1wefm and 107.7fm... music for life).

In 2004, she produced and hosted a competition titled Lipsync Fever [1], which was aired on local station, IE TV.[2] To date, she is producing and hosting "Triple F – Fashion and food with friends," which airs on CNC 3.

Personal life[edit]

Michelle Borel got married in 2004 and has three children. Previously, she was the Regional Brand Manager of TGI Friday's Caribbean. Currently, she is part of the marketing team at Restaurant Holdings Limited. Also, she has founded Cookie Castle Trinidad, which allows her to share her love for baking.
