Maya Jama joins BBC Radio 1 to host new shows

NEW GIG: Maya Jama

BBC RADIO 1 today (Jan 17) announced a new weekend schedule for the station - with new signings Maya Jama and Jordan North joining Radio 1 to host weekly shows, and celebrities including Scarlett Moffatt and Mollie King becoming Radio 1 DJs to present alongside Matt Edmondson.

Maya Jama will join Radio 1 to host Radio 1’s Greatest Hits on Saturdays (10am-1pm), and will also co-host with Scott Mills and Chris Stark Fridays, 1-4pm.

Hailing from Bristol, 23 year-old Jama landed her first TV job in 2014, presenting MTVbase show TheWrapUp. She has since hosted a string of other music TV shows across MTV, 4Music, Channel 4, ITV and Sky Arts. She has presented a radio show on Rinse FM, and recently hosted the red carpet for The BRITs 2018 Nominations Show.

Jama said: “I’m so happy to be presenting alongside Scott Mills on Fridays. I'm sure I can learn a thing or two from him and beyond excited to have my own show on Radio 1 every Saturday, I cannot wait to start!”

Radio 1’s new weekend schedule kicks off on February 24, 2018.
