Chris Moyles is the self-appointed ‘Saviour of Radio 1’ after joining the station in 1997, following his radio apprenticeship served across a variety of leading stations.
In 2011, Chris (alongside co-presenter Comedy Dave), broke the world record for the longest radio show ever, broadcasting non-stop for 52 hours and raising over £2.8million for Comic Relief. This huge effort, which was watched online by 3.8 million people followed the Comic Relief climb of Kilimanjaro in 2009 where Chris, alongside a team including Gary Barlow and Cheryl Cole, raised in excess of £3.5million for the charity.
Having served 15 years with the station, Chris left his post in 2012, having built a colossal audience of over 8 million listeners, winning critical acclaim in an unrivalled way. He also picked up such accolades as the Sony’s on 6 occasions and the GQ ‘Radio Personality of the Year’ Awards twice. He currently holds the record as the longest ever serving breakfast show host on Radio 1. Away from his impressive work within radio stations, Chris has quickly built a hugely successful and varied career, encompassing books, albums, theatre and television.
His first book, The Gospel According to Chris Moyles’ stormed straight into the Sunday Times bestseller list in both hardback and paperback, where it remained for a number of months. His follow up, ‘The Difficult Second Book’ repeated the feat. Chris Moyles co-devised ‘Chris Moyles Quiz Night’ for Channel 4 which has just completed its 5th series. In 2011 he presented ‘Love Machine’ for Sky Living and he has recently finished filming the second series. Other television credits include: ‘Live with Chris Moyles’, ‘The Chris Moyles Show’ and ‘The Big Breakfast’.
Chris’ highly experienced career in presenting and within the media, along with his hugely entertaining speaking manner makes him the ideal choice for awards hosting, presenting and DJ sets.
