Biography

Emma Boughton BA (Exon.) (born 27 November 1970 in Oxford), grew up in Canada and as a teenager in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Better known as Emma B, she is a radio presenter in the UK. She became known as Emma B when she worked for Creation Records (her maiden name was Boughton). Emma graduated from the University of Exeter with a BA in English and Drama, staying on as a sabbatical officer organising all the live events and skiing competitively for the university. She came 7th in the giant slalom in the British university championships.

Her first experience with radio was at the age of 7 as part of a drama on BBC Radio Oxford with Timmy Mallet. She worked at Radio Caroline (at Bristol dock) before writing articles for media magazines, which included Kerrang!. She also presented a daily children's show along with Timmy Mallet at Radio Oxford, where she was called Susan Zinc!

Emma joined BBC Radio 1 in April 1998, firstly presenting an Early Saturday morning show from 4–7am. In 1999, she took over the Saturday afternoon show from 1–3pm alongside Sara Cox and the Sunday night/Monday morning overnight slot from 1–4am. In addition to that, in January 2000, she co-presented the Sunday Surgery show, alongside Dr Mark Hamilton every Sunday evening from 9–11pm. Sunday Surgery has dealt with social and health problems including sex, drugs, poverty and crime. She won 4 Sonys for the show and has been singled out as having saved lives through that show.

In September 2001, Emma took over Saturday Breakfast from 7–10am as well as the Sunday Sugery show. She continued with Saturday Breakfast until late 2003.

Emma eventually quit Radio 1 in early 2005 and in August 2005 joined London's Heart 106.2, presenting a Sunday evening show from 7-10pm. She then took over the weekday drivetime show alongside fellow DJ Greg Burns, and then moved to the 4-7pm slot alone. Emma's show was the first female solo show to ever take the number one spot on the drivetime slot in the London area.

Emma has presented various youth programmes on British television including The Base on ITV. She also appears on GMTV from time to time.
