Arts & Entertainment Award 2006
The nation’s most popular DJ started his radio career at the age of 16 on Aire FM, here in Leeds. And Chris Moyle’s hometown still has a special place in his heart. After working on various radio stations, Chris landed at London’s Capital FM, where he took the city by storm. Part motormouth, part loveable rogue, his no-holds barred approach soon brought him to the attention of Radio 1 bosses. In 2004 Chris took over the Breakfast show, officially becoming the saviour of breakfast radio. Around 7.6 million people wake up to his Radio 1 breakfast show every day.
