Charlie Sloth to leave BBC Radio 1 and 1xtra.
After nearly a decade on Radio 1 and 1Xtra, Charlie Sloth will be stepping away from the mic later this month.
Known as ‘The People’s Prince’, Charlie currently presents The 8th and The Rap Show for the networks, and was previously at the helm of 1Xtra drivetime.
Charlie also hosts ‘Fire In The Booth’ which has seen appearances from Stormzy, Bugzy Malone, Drake, Big Shaq and many more.
Ben Cooper (Controller BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra and Asian Network) says: “Thank you to Charlie for being an important part of Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s history – for nearly 10 years his passion and energy for his music and his shows has been second to none.”
Charlie Sloth said: “Ten of the best years of my life, I want to say a huge thank you to everybody who has listened to me over the years and supported me in everything I have done, I love you, and the journey continues. I joined the BBC as a boy and I leave as a man.”
Charlie’s last show on ‘The 8th‘ will be Thursday 1 November and his last show on ‘The Rap Show’ will be Saturday 3 November.
New presenters will be announced for both shows in coming weeks.
