Chris Moyles

Chris Moyles is most famous for being the presenter of 'The Chris Moyles Show' on BBC Radio 1. He and his team have transformed the breakfast show on the station and increased the audience up to 6.5 million. Moyles has a team on his show that makes his style distinct and individual. The most prominent of the team is Chris' fellow DJ Dave Vitty or Comedy Dave as he is commonly known. He has worked with Chris for years as well as hosting a show with DJ Mark Chapman. Sports reader Carrie Davis, news reader Dominic Byrne, Producer Rachel and day producer Aled also feature throughout the show. Moyles also invites or talks to his friends such as Longman who owns a sandwich shop in Chris' hometown of Leeds and Impressionist Jon Culshaw. Chris joined Radio 1 on July 28, 1997 and soon took over the Saturday mid-morning slot. In October 1998 Chris took over the weekday afternoon show and stayed there for 5 years before he took on the flagship morning show. His talents were recently recognized when he was awarded the Gold Sony Radio Award in 2006 for Best Entertainment Show.
Moyles has always been a controversial DJ. Most recently he was accused of being racist by Halle Berry as Chris was interviewing here and her X-Men co-star Hugh Jackman. He has also been in hot water over comments he would take Charlotte Church's virginity when she turned 16. However the jokes are always in good heart proven by the fact Moyles is friends with Church and her family, recently doing a show from their welsh pub at Christmas. Also recently many listeners accused him of being unprofessional after he didn't turn up for the show the day after he had been in Cardiff for the Championship Play-Off final. His team said they had no idea where he was but the BBC later announced this as pre-planned.
Chris Moyles has ventured into TV work but has been relatively unsuccessful. His Channel 5 show 'Live With . . . Chris Moyles' got terrible viewing figures and got canceled soon after. He and Comedy Dave also had a show on the now non-existent channel UK Play. 'The Chris Moyles Show' aired in 1999 before the channel was pulled. He has also hosted the long running music programme 'Top of The Pops' a few times and done charity work for Comic Relief. Most recently Chris has entered the celebrity version of 'The X Factor'. 'The X Factor: Battle of The Stars' which is raising money for charity featured many stars including Moyles in the 'Over 25's' category. He has expressed a desire to do well but not win it, he has said the final 4 would be his preferred position. He later stated that he would like to win it after a few nights in the competition. His desire didn't become reailty after he was eliminated in the show before the final, and Lucy Benjamin went on to win the contest. In June 2006, his Radio 1 team went to Germany for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
In October 2006, Moyles released his autbiography - 'The Gospel According To Chris Moyles'. He mentioned the book numerous times on his morning show despite being told by Radio1 bosses that it was against the rules to advertise his book.
More recently, Moyles has had a part in the BBC One show 'Hotel Babylon' and appeared on 'Supermarket Sweep' with Aled, one of the crew from his radio show.
For Comic Relief, Moyles and his team organised 'The Red Nose Rallyoke' which involved them travelling around Britain on a tour-bus for a week, and every night having a karaoke session for which listeners had won tickets. Joining them would be celebrities including Davina McCall, members of Travis, Louis Walsh and Kelly Jones of The Stereophonics. During the morning radio shows, once in a lifetime prizes would be on offer which listeners would enter for by text. These texts were the main fund raising idea for the Rallyoke. In total the Rallyoke raised over £600,000.

In 1997, Sky magazine voted Chris one of the 'Faces for '97'.

In 2006, Gold Sony Radio Award for Best Entertainment Show.

Chris' Channel 5 show 'Live With . . . Chris Moyles' flopped in the ratings.

Chris and his radio 1 team once featured in features in the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest-ever selling download, with his charity single 'Dogz Don't Kill People (Wabbitz Do)' under the name 'Mouldie Lookin' Stain'.

Chris is reffered to, often by himself, as 'The Saviour' of Radio 1. This is partly due to him overtaking Johnny Vaughn as the most listened to youth breakfast show and just increasing listeners in general.
