Tiffany Calver has been announced as the new host of ‘The Rap Show’ on Radio 1 and 1Xtra.

“I’m honoured to be taking over the slot that has pretty much soundtracked my life”, she says. “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”.

Calver will take over the show, previously presented by Charlie Sloth, in January. Sloth, of course, announced his intention to leave the BBC earlier this year, then cut his notice period short following a sweary rant after he failed to win the Best Specialist Show prize at the ARIAs last month.

Another female voice with more airtime on 1Xtra will be Snoochie Shy, who is set to take over the late night slot in April.

“I’m super super gassed to be given this show”, she says. “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 gonna be a show like no other; a mad chat/entertainment show meeting a rave in your radio”.

On the new appointments, Radio 1 and 1Xtra Controller Ben Cooper adds: “Fantastic to welcome Tiffany – a new presenter, for a new generation of hip hop fans. Tiffany and Snoochie continue our mission to give new young talent the opportunity to grow into the stars of tomorrow”.

Shoochie Shy, who has appeared on 1Xtra in its residency slot, was previously announced as getting her own specialist show on Monday nights from 1am-3am from January.
