Margherita Taylor is a British broadcaster, TV and radio presenter.

Taylor studied media and communications at the University of Central England, majoring in video production for her degree.[1][2]

Radio[edit]

Taylor found fame in 1993 when Birmingham based radio station BRMB offered her a slot as a DJ as part of a talent contest. She presented a weekend overnight show, but soon came to the attention of bosses at Capital London, BRMB's former sister station in London, and in 1994 was appointed presenter of weekend breakfast on the station, and provided cover for Capital's other presenters during the week during this period she would also work at the Tate Gallery as a part of the box office. This provided her with the opportunity to familiarise herself with the average Joe and contributed to her down to earth persona. She was the longest-serving member of the on-air team.

Taylor has presented an evening show on The Jazz; a radio station available on satellite, DAB and online. She could be heard on the Capital nine-station network presenting early weekend breakfast from 8 January until 31 December 2011.

Presently, Taylor presents Smooth Classics on Classic FM each weeknight[3] and Sunday afternoons on Heart London.[4]

Television[edit]

In March 1999, Taylor became one of the original presenters of the Channel 4 daytime teen-aimed show, T4, alongside Dermot O'Leary and later Vernon Kay. She left in January 2001.

She is currently a contributor for Daybreak (previously GMTV) and This Morning on ITV.

Taylor also does a lot of voice over work for British companies' television advertisements.
