Chris Moyles, ‘the saviour of Radio 1’, was the station’s longest-serving breakfast show DJ having presented the early morning slot since 2004 and working at Radio 1 for 15 years. Chris’s mischievous and maverick style on the radio and as a DJ has won him many loyal fans over the years. Witty and opinionated Chris would be an ideal speaker for an awards ceremony.
