Meet the woman replacing Charlie Sloth for Radio 1 Rap Show

APPOINTED: Tiffany Calver

TIFFANY CALVER has been named as the new host of ‘The Rap Show’ on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra (Saturdays, 9-11pm).

The 24 year-old Hip-Hop DJ is the newest young face to join the Radio 1 and 1Xtra family.

Starting on January 5, Calver will be the first female presenter to host the biggest show in Hip-Hop, previously presented by Charlie Sloth and Tim Westwood, and will bring a fresh new take to the famous Saturday night slot.

Calver has been associated with the hottest acts in the music scene having opened for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s ‘On The Run’ tour earlier this year and is the official DJ for Fredo.

Speaking on her new role Tiffany Calver said: “I’m honoured to be taking over the slot that has pretty much soundtracked my life. I look forward to carrying on the legacy of such a prestigious and highly respected show while also having the opportunity to add my own flavour (and sound effects) to it. This is a new beginning in so many ways; dreams really can come true.”

The Telford-born DJ started her career at Radar Radio and most recently presented the Hip-Hop show on KissFresh.

Also securing a brand-new 1Xtra show is 26 year-old Snoochie Shy, who will take over the 1Xtra late-night slot Monday-Thursday, 11pm-1am. The South Londoner originally joined the 1Xtra Residency last year and brings a wealth of broadcasting experience having previously hosted the breakfast show on Radar Radio and presents for YO MTV RAPS!. She has also hosted live events including the MOBO Awards red carpet.

“I’m super super gassed to be given this show!," said Snoochie Shy. "This is honestly the dream show for me! I can’t wait to get started and make it my own. The sickest music that I’m feeling and a lot of crazy features. It’s gunna be a show like no other; a mad chat/entertainment show meeting a rave in your radio.”
