Clara Amfo is a dynamic and bold young broadcaster best known for her 10 am -1 pm BBC Radio 1 show, home of the world-famous Live Lounge.
Her show has seen her interview some of the world’s most prolific artists from Jay-Z, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell Williams to name but a few.

A respected face on our screens, Clara has been hosting the ITV2 coverage of The BRIT Awards for the past three years, as well as handing out awards at the ceremony for Best International Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough act.
She is also a recurrent presence on the judging panel for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize and announced the winner to the nationwide audience.
A lover of film and entertainment made Clara the perfect newest addition to the line up of The BBC Film Show alongside Lauren Laverne and Charlie Brooker, presenting the usual show and the 2018 Oscar special.
No stranger to the red carpet, Clara joined the BAFTA TV Awards presenting team this year, covering the red carpet live and backstage winner interviews for the official BAFTA channels. Her natural aptitude for this was extended to the film world, hosting the European and world premieres for Elton John’s Rocketman, Crimes Of Grindlewald, Marvel’s box office breaking Black Panther and The Royal European Premiere of Disney’s The Lion King.
With live music being one of her many passions, Clara is part of the core presenting team on BBC2 and BBC4 for their coverage of Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Glastonbury, with the last two years seeing her introduce Adele and Ed Sheeran from the Pyramid Stage to millions of people worldwide.
DJing comes naturally to Clara Amfo. She has played sets for Mercedes Benz, HBO, Somerset House, Royal Academy, Bobbi Brown and Grey Goose.
