Gagan Grewal

Gagan Grewal first set foot in a radio studio when he was 15 years old.

After 2 weeks of work experience at Sunrise Radio, he had ‘the bug’ and was regularly found sitting in on a young Sonia Deol's show!

Gagan went on to win an early morning show and later, the Chart Show on Saturday afternoons. By the time Gagan reached University age, he was presenting Sunrise Radio's Breakfast Show, coming off-air at 9am and hot footing it straight to lectures.

Gagan's first show on BBC Asian Network was on Millennium night - 31st Dec 1999. He then found himself at the helm of Breakfast again – this time for 6 years before starting a totally

new show in Hinglish – combining Hindi & English on weekday evenings. During this time, Gagan interviewed almost all big Bollywood and South Asian stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Dharmendra to Shahid Afridi, Zeenat Aman, and Shazia Manzoor.

Gagan loves to travel. He’s toured all continents except Antarctica. He is particularly fond of South Asia, visiting India dozens of times, Pakistan, Bangladesh (twice!) and Sri Lanka too.

He lives in Warwickshire with his Staffordshire bull terrier called Blue.
