DJ SETS | CORPORATE
Sara Cox loves music and plays sets that reflect her 20 years in this crazy biz we call show. From her 80s radio show, through brit pop to big beat and on to todays melting pot of pop, R&B, hip hop and dance, she’ll play it all. From Whitney to Kanye to Cameo, from the Killers to Kim Wilde, to Prince, Madness and the Prodigy – she’s always guaranteed to make people dance and even jump about a bit.
Born in glorious Bolton, the jewel of the North West, Sara Cox, daughter of beef farmers, left behind her career in Manchester as an international supermodel/barmaid to head to London in search of fame and fortune in the heady days of Brit Pop, 1995. She presented various tv shows, from Channel 4’s “The Girlie Show” to “MTV Hot”, Channel 5’s “Exclusive” and Channel 4 music programmes “Album Chart Show” and “Born Sloppy.”
Sara Cox presented BBC Radio One’s Breakfast show for 3 and a half years, taking the show to various festivals and to the Balearics for the notoriously hedonistic “Radio One’s Ibiza Weekend” and hosted numerous slots including drivetime and across the weekend. During these years Sara became a mum to 3 gorgeous children and is happily married to a very lovely and patient man called Ben.
In 2013 Sara made the move from BBC Radio One (school) to BBC Radio 2 (sixth form) where she presented her own Friday night show “Sounds of the 80s” – 2 hours of brilliant music from the 1980s, an eclectic, exciting decade of music that is often reflected in her DJ sets. Once a month there is a red button special, reaching millions of viewers with star interviews and a plethora of amazing 80’s pop videos to accompany the music. Sara is also the official Radio 2 Breakfast Show cover DJ for Chris Evans, regularly playing music to and attempting to entertain over 9.5 million listeners on Europe’s biggest breakfast show.
In 2019 Sara took over the Radio 2 drivetime show, taking over from Simon Mayo and Jo Whiley.
Sara Cox is also a regular co-host on Radio Four’s “Loose Ends” and presents BBC2’s “The Great Pottery Throwndown”, the second series of which will be on screen in spring 2017. Apart from her family and work, Sara loves horses and has raced at Goodwood for charity and was QIPCO ambassador for the 2016 Champions Series, DJing at Ascot on Champions day.
