Bailey has always known that she was born to ENTERTAIN. Ironically named after “Bailey” a female radio presenter character in the TV series WKRP in Cincinnati, it seemed she was destined for the broadcasting and entertaining world.
She was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, with Swiss heritage and moved to Cape Town, South Africa in 2013. Dual city living between the 2 cities has become a big part of her life.
She started on radio at 17 years old on the campus radio station at RAU, where she obtained her BA Journalism degree. She continued in her radio career on retail radio, Edgars Music Radio and then moved into commercial radio, with 94.7.
Bailey was a part of the Afternoon Drive show for 8 years with Alex Jay, Revin John and then Mark Pilgrim.
In 2012, she added internet/digital radio to her resume, when she joined SA's biggest digital station, 2Oceansvibe Radio. She hosts The Bailey Schneider show every Monday - Thursday between 12-2pm where she interviews the crème de la crème of SA and international celebrities, business owners and other interesting people with a story to tell.
In May 2015, she joined Cape Town's new commercial radio station, Smile 90.4 FM. Bailey co-hosts the Afternoon Drive show with Maurice Carpede every Monday - Friday from 3-6pm.
Bailey was one of the few radio presenters in South Africa to work on 2 radio stations at the same time, but in December 2015, she resigned from 2Oceansvibe Radio to focus on the Afternoon Drive show at Smile 90.4 FM, TV presenting, MC work and voice overs.
In September 2018, one of Bailey's radio dreams came true and she was given her own radio show on Smile 90.4 FM. She now hosts the 9am - 12pm show, Monday - Friday. The features on the show include: Bailey's Hi - 5, Home Sweet Home Lifestyle feature, Showbiz News, Smile Parenting, Tea Time with Bailey - an interview segment, where she interviews A-list celebrities, up and coming stars and Entrepreneurs.
In 2010, she entered the Top Billing Presenter search and came 5th overall. She became an insert / guest presenter on the Expresso Morning show on SABC 3 between 2013 - 2017 . The insert "Beauty with Bailey" was shown every Tuesday morning in 2016 and 2017 where Bailey gives beauty, make-up and hair tips.

Her voice is sought after for many voice overs for radio and TV commercials, IVRs, corporate videos and more.
She is a successful, popular MC and audiences are drawn to her bubbly, beautiful, warm and approachable manner. She certainly is as charming off air as she is on.
Despite her busy schedule, Bailey also created the company BS MEDIA, which looks after social media for different clients.
She has always been on trend with social media and was one of the first South Africans to have a Twitter account. In 2012, she studied Social Media at Quirk and the University of Stellenbosch Business Institute.
She writes a popular lifestyle blog, called Vanilla Blonde where she shares her adventures, photography and favourite items, brands and experiences.
