Get to know the Radio 1 Breakfast host Greg James

Here's a little bit about Greg

Greg was born on 17th December 1985.

After pestering his local hospital radio station at the tender age of 14, he was eventually given a show out of pity, only later to find out that the transmitter was broken and his shows were never broadcast.

Greg studied Drama at The University of East Anglia, and picked up the 'Best Male Presenter' award at the Student Radio Awards in 2005 for his work on UEA's student station, Livewire.

After spending a month on the Early Breakfast Friday morning slot at Radio 1, Greg spent time covering for JK and Joel and Sara Cox. His first ever show was broadcast on 1st June 2007, the day after he graduated.

In August 2018, Greg took over Radio 1 Breakfast from Nick Grimshaw and he is now with you 6:30 to 10am every Monday to Thursday.
