Jo Whiley

Hear Jo, Monday-Thursday, 8-10pm

Jo was born in Northampton. After studying in Brighton and dabbling on BBC Radio Sussex's new music show, her first broadcasting job proper was as a presenter for WPFM, Radio 4's youth culture and music show. She then moved over into TV, initially on satellite, then to Channel 4 as band booker for The Word, giving Britain its first television taste of bands such as Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine. 

Jo joined Radio 1 in the Spring of 1993 and in September she became permanent co-presenter of The Evening Session with Steve Lamacq. Four years later she landed her own daytime show, and remained part of Radio 1's weekday line-up until 2009, when she began a new weekend programme.

Jo has also presented coverage of the Glastonbury Festival on Radio 1, Channel 4 and BBC-TV, plus she's hosted several music programmes for Channel 4.
