About Polly James
Polly James is an award-winning radio DJ, host and voiceover artist. She presents the weekend afternoon slot on Radio X where she gets to play her favourite rock classics that she loves outside of the show. She also hosts Sky Sports Darts and recently The Late Night Football Show on BBC iPlayer.
Polly is a natural broadcaster, whether she is presenting to a handful of people in an intimate setting or to thousands of people in a stadium. She truly thrives when hosting live events and with her fun, cheeky and no holds barred approach to interviewing, it's no wonder her most recent Q&A's with Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury gained international press attention. With a whole host of names from sporting stars, musicians and bands, her favourite to chat to was Tom Jones (of course) where she persuaded him to sign a pair of her knickers which now proudly hang framed in her living room. She has experience in hosting charity and award nights, fashion shows and wedding fayres, business and corporate events, red carpet coverage, back-stage and on-stage at concerts and festivals and sporting events where she currently hosts the online coverage for the 'Wales Sports Personality of the Year' awards, is the stadium announcer for the FAW and presents online coverage for both UNIBET Premier League of Darts and PRO14's rugby team Newport Dragons. 2021 saw Polly join the Sky Sports Darts presentation team, debuting at the World Grand Prix
Born and bred in the city of Cardiff, she began her career on Absolute Radio and quickly became a favourite on the night-shift with her warm, engaging style and fun sense of humour. After 4 years of the nocturnal life, Polly had the opportunity to move back home and be at the helm of the popular Capital Breakfast show in South Wales where she and co-host Matt reigned for 7 years becoming double winners of the Best Breakfast show at the Arqiva awards. Her passion for the music saw Polly take on regular daytime cover on Radio X including sitting in for Johnny Vaughn as well as her weekend shows.
Polly lives her life on social media and if she isn't creating content at her local Heavy Metal fest she will be raving about the darts. You can catch her on the airwaves every weekend afternoon on Radio X.
