Mini Bio (2)

Chris was born in Leeds on the 22nd of February 1974, to an Irish mother and an English dad (Chris Moyles, who works for the Post Office. He began his radio career working for a hospital radio station in his hometown Leeds, before joining Aire FM at the tender age of 16. He then worked for various radio stations, including Chiltern, Luxembourg, and Capital FM, before landing his dream job at BBC Radio One in 1997, with his comedy sidekick Dave Vitty.

Chris has turned down two offers to join Virgin Radio, by its owner Chris Evans who is a fan of Moyles. He was also offered a job presenting The Big Breakfast (1992) but turned it down as he didn't want to give up his radio show.

Personal Quotes (1)

The BBC is in a very weird state where they just don't want to upset anybody. Everything now needs to be signed, sealed and approved 18 times. We're not trying to change the world, but because radio is so dull, so boring and so formulaic, and anyone different - me or Jonathan (Jonathan Ross) - stands out. So the BBC is throwing down rules and regulations on you and then the newspapers are saying certain things and you're just trying to juggle everything while keeping everyone happy at the same time. (Speaking in 2009)
