Katie Thistleton is a TV and radio presenter, journalist and author, best known for her work on BBC Radio 1, BBC One’s Morning Live and CBBC.
After working as a Researcher for CBeebies, Katie made the leap in front of the camera at the start of 2013 after being headhunted to join the CBBC HQ line-up to host ‘the bits in between the shows’, a role once occupied by the likes of Phillip Schofield and Zoe Ball. Katie hosted CBBC’s live continuity for over six years, claiming the title of the longest running presenter to occupy that role, before leaving to concentrate on her work at Radio 1. After deputising on BBC Radio 1’s The Surgery in early 2016, Katie became the show’s main anchor before being promoted to the coveted Sunday slot with the new ‘Life Hacks’ programme. Katie and her co-presenter Vick Hope host the social action show, an appointment which made them the first female double act on BBC Radio 1 in 20 years. The pair alongside experts offer advice on topics ranging from sexual health and bullying to drink and drugs. The pair also host Radio 1’s Official Chart First look on Sunday evenings.
