Fi Glover

Fi Glover currently hosts "Broadcasting House" on Sunday mornings on BBC Radio 4. Described as 'velvet voiced' by The Guardian and voted in at number 9 in the Radio Times' 'Favourite Voice' in Britain, Fi has worked across a wide range of radio and TV programmes. 

She started her career on the BBC's journalism training course before coming to rest as the host of GLR's Breakfast Show in 1996. From there she transferred to the medium wave with the relaunch of Five Live. She presented three strands for the new station - "The Ad Break", "Witness" and "How to Survive in the 21st Century".

 

The lure of free travel and being able to nick toiletries from hotels proved too much and Fi spent the next three years working for "The Travel Show" on BBC 2. Her journeys inspired her to write her first book - excitingly titled "Travels with My Radio" - which did exactly what it says in the title. By this time - 1999 - Fi was back at Five Live - presenting their once a week political hit "Sunday Service"; she also presented the Afternoon Show and the award winning late night Fi Glover Show, before coming to rest for six months in the chair of the mid morning phone in show. 

She spent 6 months in America at the end of 2004 researching her second book before taking up the reins of BH on Radio 4. 

Fi has voiced up a fair few documentaries for ITV 1, Channel 4 and the BBC, including BBC 2's major series "Spend Spend Spend", "Diet Junkies" and "Food Junkies". As well as writing books Fi has also written a column for The Guardian, travel articles for The Independent and Wanderlust magazine and has made at least 3 appearances in Private Eye's Colemanballs
