Cyprusscene are pleased to welcome Engin Dervişağa to be a contributor of news and items of interest for the enjoyment of our readers worldwide.

Engin was born in the UK and was educated at Wembley High School until at the age of 18 when he came to North Cyprus and studied at the Near East University in Travel and Tourism Management where he gained a degree before joining BRT in 1997 as a TV Transmission Director and has progressed from there and now runs an outside TV unit visiting interesting people every week with a TV crew and carries out the interviews, directs the recording and then comes back to the studio where he processes and presents “Vox Pop” which is an English language TV transmission which has had Turkish sub titles added to reach a wider audience and is transmitted on Sundays at 10.30am and on Mondays at 12.00 noon.

Although this weekly TV project keeps him very busy, he also presents a radio show “Top Twenty” on Saturdays at 20.30pm.

If that’s not enough to keep Engin busy, he is married to Pinar with a baby daughter, Bode and has a cat and a Cyprus terrier and still finds time to read and go to the cinema.
