An indigene of Kogi State, she had her early years in Kaduna where her mother comes from, studied in Kano, Kogi and Kwara States. She got a Bachelors of Arts degree in Linguistics from the University of Ilorin.
With highly trained personnel, she confesses the FRCN Training School has all it takes to make a broadcaster out of a linguist.
She insists that attaining a career in Broadcasting was a divine providence because no sooner than she got employed after arriving from the Training School was she ushered into the Network News Corps against all odds.
Although she believes she is just starting her career, Asabe Frank Baiye names the likes of late Veronica Osawere, Zachary Mohammed, Samson Shuaibu and Ilemi Okoka as her mentors and recalls with nostalgia the roles they all played in getting her to where she is in the Broadcast media.
Before joining FRCN, she was into Catering, Contracts and Interior Decoration. Cooking and Interior décor are still part of her hobbies today.
She has produced and presented magazine programmes such as AM Safari and Woman to Woman on the MW&SW frequencies of Radio Nigeria Abuja while on the Network Service she has also voiced programmes such as Health Watch, This Land Nigeria and Every Woman. She has had the opportunity of interviewing dignitaries such as former ICPC boss, Mustapha Akanbi.
Her frustrating moments in life are moments when she mispronounces names of persons or places on the news. Her dream for now is that someday she will be able to package and present programmes for abused children of the society.
Broadcasting, she concludes, is where she will always want to be and advises young ones to always believe in themselves and know they can achieve their dreams by remaining focused.
"I love meeting people and the most dramatic one that occurred recently apart from meeting Dr. Eddie Iroh, is meeting my better half after several years of loosing touch as schoolmates", she smiles.
