Angie Greaves - We Rise By Lifting Others


Angie Greaves - Photography by Sane Seven for The Female Lead

Angie Graves, National Drive Time Presenter, Smooth Radio and Smooth Sunday Mornings, has one of the most soulful and distinctive female voices in UK radio today. Angie began her career as an administrator at BBC Television Centre and moved to London’s Capital Radio where she was discovered, by DJ David “Kid” Jensen, who encouraged her into presenting. In 1990, she was the first DJ at the launch of Spectrum Radio and in 1992 she joined Choice FM and presented the Angie Greaves Breakfast Show. She then joined the BBC and presented shows on BBC London, BBC Three Counties Radio and the Drive Time show on BBC 2002 in Manchester. Angie became the first woman to join the Magic presenter line-up and after 14 years at the station, she was poached by Global Media to join Smooth Radio.
