FRIDAY 28 AUGUST 2020 - RIVERSIDE PARK, NEWARK
Ellis Mather presents Newark Festival has just confirmed one of the nation’s most popular DJs; Jo Whiley will be coming to the Friday night of 2020’s much anticipated festival. Jo will be bringing her popular Jo Whiley’s 90s Anthems Tour to Newark, including all the best tracks from this great decade of music and this will undoubtedly be one of the biggest nights out of the year!
Jo Whiley - arguably one of the most recognisable voices in British Broadcasting - has had an exciting and varied career and is considered one of the nation’s favourite radio DJs. After studying in Brighton and dabbling on BBC Radio Sussex’s new music show, her first broadcasting job was as a presenter for WPFM, Radio 4’s youth culture and music show. She then moved over into TV, initially on satellite, then to Channel 4 as band booker for ‘The Word’, giving Britain its first television taste of bands such as Nirvana and Rage Against The Machine.
Jo joined Radio 1 in the Spring of 1993 and in September she became permanent co-presenter of The Evening Session with Steve Lamacq. Four years later she landed her own daytime show and remained part of Radio 1’s weekday line-up until 2009, when she began a new weekend programme. Jo has also presented coverage of the Glastonbury Festival on Radio 1, Channel 4 and BBC, plus she’s hosted several music programmes for Channel 4. Jo now presents the 7.00-9.00pm slot weekdays on BBC Radio 2.
