Clara Amfo

Radio Presenter

Clara Amfo is a dynamic and bold young broadcaster best known for her 10am -1pm BBC Radio 1 show, home of the world famous Live Lounge.

Her show has seen her interview some of the world’s most prolific artists from Jay-Z, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams to name but a few. She was also the host of the iconic BBC Radio 1 Chart Show - the second woman to do so since the show first started in 1967.

A respected face on our screens, Clara has been hosting the ITV2 coverage of The BRIT Awards for the past 3 years, as well as handing out awards at the ceremony for Best International Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough act. She is also a recurrent presence on the judging panel for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize and announced the winner to it’s nationwide audience.

A lover of film and entertainment made Clara the perfect newest addition to the line up of The BBC Film show alongside Lauren Laverne and Charlie Brooker, presenting the usual show and the 2018 Oscar special.

No stranger to the red carpet Clara joined the BAFTA TV Awards presenting team this year, covering the red carpet live and backstage winner interviews for the official BAFTA channels. Her natural aptitude for this was extended to the film world, hosting the European and world premieres for Elton John’s Rocketman, Crimes Of Grindlewald, Marvel’s box office breaking Black Panther and more recently The Royal European Premiere of Disney’s The Lion King.

Clara was named as a contributing editor to Elle magazine, has a new podcast with Spotify and Sony development and a book to come in 2021 will be lots to write about!
