Sara Cox



Sara Cox is a celebrated radio DJ & presenter with a passion for music which has taken her to the very top of a highly competitive branch of show business; Bolton born and bred, Sara is very comfortable in the world of corporate hospitality. 

Sara Cox loves music and plays sets that reflect her 20 years in this crazy biz we call show. From her 80s radio show, through brit pop to big beat and on to todays melting pot of pop, R&B, hip hop and dance, she’ll play it all. From Whitney to Kanye to Cameo, from the Killers to Kim Wilde, to Prince, Madness and the Prodigy – she’s always guaranteed to make people dance and even jump about a bit.

Born in Bolton Sara Cox is the daughter of beef farmer. She left behind her a possible career as a model in Manchester in search of fame and fortune in London in the heady days of Brit Pop, 1995. She presented various tv shows, from Channel 4’s “The Girlie Show” to “MTV Hot”, Channel 5’s “Exclusive” and Channel 4 music programmes “Album Chart Show” and “Born Sloppy.”

Sara went on to present BBC Radio One’s Breakfast show for 3 and a half years, taking the show to various festivals and to the Balearics for the notoriously hedonistic “Radio One’s Ibiza Weekend”. 

In 2013 Sara made the move from BBC Radio One (school) to BBC Radio 2 (sixth form) where she presented her own Friday night show “Sounds of the 80s” – 2 hours of music from the 1980s, an eclectic, exciting decade of music that is often reflected in her DJ sets. Once a month there is a red button special, reaching millions of viewers with star interviews and a plethora of amazing 80’s pop videos to accompany the music. 

In 2019 Sara took over the Radio 2 drivetime show from Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley.

Sara is also a regular co-host on Radio Four’s “Loose Ends” and presents BBC2’s “The Great Pottery Throwndown”.
