Supermom and wife, and super cool announcer at Tag Radio 91.1, Louie Da Costa juggles family life and career with an aplomb that is a testament to her super woman status.


Formerly, the other half of the Mak and da Costa on Virgin Radio, she now works alongside fun partner “Daddy Bluebird” in Tag Radio.  But having it all also entails responsibilities which are challenging. Louie handles it all though with a bright and bubbly personality that earned her nominations for Best Radio DJ and a win for Best Female Presenter.


Having grown up in Dubai, it is obvious to anyone who has listened to her on the airwaves that she is very familiar with the pulse of the locale. This affinity together with her very own Filipino humor is an unbeatable combination on air, exuding charm and providing comfort to all her listeners. Her decade long career in the radio industry is a testament to her awesomeness. She is indeed a perfect model for the modern Filipina.


“As OFWs in a country filled with different nationalities, we have to be mindful that everything we do is a reflection of not just ourselves as individuals, but of who we are as Filipinos. We can erase all the negative preconceptions about us. We are much much more than what others see us to be. Let’s show them who we Pinoys really are.”
