Her late husband Bob Mahabir was known for his part in making our Caribbean community better. In 1987 they started Whiz Communications, producing programs on WAVS and WVCG. A special program “Dosti ki Awaaz”, translated as “The Voice of Friendship” became the number one Indian program on air.
Bob’s untimely death in 2001 left Joy at the helm. Whiz Communications has stood the test of time and is known as one of the best broadcasting companies on WAVS Radio, thanks to President Dr. Bob Hochstein and CEO’s Maria & Ramon Pazos. Her charitable contribution is acknowledged by Amnesty International. She is loved by family and her 2 grown children Analisa and David.
