Fi Glover currently is the voice behind The Listening Project on BBC Radio 4, and My Perfect Country for the BBC World Service. She’s worked at BBC Radio 5 Live for seven years, helming shows like Sunday Service, with Charlie Whelan and Andrew Pierce, Late Night Live, and the Afternoon Show, before moving to BBC Radio 4 as the host of Broadcasting House. In 2010, Radio Times readers voted Fi the 9th Most Powerful Voice on Radio, and in 2014, she was awarded a fellowship of the Radio Academy, in recognition of her ‘outstanding contributions to the industry’.
Outside of broadcasting, Fi has a semi lustrous television career, too – as presenter of the Travel Show on BBC Two, occasional presenter of Newsnight, and host of BBC One’s six-part reality history show, 24 Hours in the Past.
Fi writes a weekly column for Waitrose Weekend, was the Chair of the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2009, and is the founder of Sound Women, a lobby group that campaigns for parity in the broadcasting industry. She now ‘chunters waspishly along’ with fellow host Jane Garvey about fellow BBC talent and their own lives on Fortunately.
