Angie Greaves, ‘Daytime’ and ‘Soul Town’ presenter on Magic Radio, has one of the most soulful and distinctive female voices in UK radio today. Born in London and enjoying being ‘fabulous in her 50’s’, Angie grew up within a traditional Afro-Caribbean family setting. Even from a young age, she loved her soulful roots and she knew she had a ‘voice’ in the world – one that needed to be shared – and one that she continues to share today.
Angie’s media career started off in 1982 at BBC Television Centre and by 1986 she had moved to London’s Capital Radio where she was discovered by DJ: David ‘Kid’ Jensen. In 1990, Angie was announced as the first DJ at the launch of Spectrum Radio before joining Choice FM in 1992 for five soulful years, trebling listener figures on her Angie Greaves Breakfast Show. After this time, Angie joined the BBC, where she presented shows on BBC London, BBC Three Counties Radio and the Drive Time show on BBC 2002 in Manchester. The latter was an RSL station launched to air coverage on Wimbledon, The World Cup and The Commonwealth Games.
Whilst bringing up a young family, Angie freelanced across Jazz/Smooth FM, Radio Jackie and LBC 97.3FM until 2006. She started working with Magic in late 2006 and was the first woman to join the Magic presenter line-up. In addition to her extensive and prolific radio career, Angie has created her own Angie Greaves multi-platform brand, including a well-established book club.
Voiceover work includes the MOBO awards, numerous terrestrial and satellite television documentaries and television commercials. As a special soothing treat, if you travel long-haul on a British Airways flight, you can listen to Angie’s two-hour ‘Soul Selection’ on British Airways Radio. Angie has interviewed some of the world’s best- known musical artists and is proud to call some of them personal friends. Her recent event, called The Essence of Crop Over’ and official visit to Crop Over in Barbados, with The BTMI, has further extended Angie’s reach and appeal into the international travel sector.
This August in 2016, Angie was proud to have been asked to stand in for Clare Balding on BBC Radio 2’s‘Good Morning Sunday’ during The Olympic Games Rio 2016.
Angie is passionate about being recognised not only for her voice but also as a lauded British female spokesperson. She fully encompasses the archetypal, positive role model for 50+ women throughout the U K and farther afield. Angie supports other people’s dreams and aspirations and is the very proud mother of two teenage daughters. She is truly a woman with a big heart who continues to forge ahead in her very own ‘soul town’.
