About Lucy Coward

Lucy Coward

Lucy is not only a presenter but a journalist and voiceover artist.

    • Lucy's love of discovering new classical music is matched by her enthusiasm for baking.

    • Lucy arrived at Classic FM in 2009, via local newspapers, Kestrel FM, LBC and the Heart and Capital radio networks.

    • Lucy studied drama at the University of Hull before completing an MA in Radio at Goldsmiths College, London.

    • Lucy’s work as a journalist has taken her from Chicago for Barack Obama’s inaugural election to Buckingham Palace for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

    • Among her favourite moments for Classic FM have been reporting live from a boat during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant on the River Thames to celebrate Her Majesty's 60 year reign, travelling to Tuscany to meet and interview Andrea Bocelli, and having a lovely chat with Alice Cooper about Prokofiev.

    • One of Lucy's finest performances was playing Aladdin in panto (oh yes it was).

    • Holst’s The Planets turned Lucy on to classical music when she was a young girl.

    • She likes testing out baking recipes on her colleagues at Classic FM and is also a keen explorer, snowboarder and sailor.

    • Lucy learned to play the piano at her grandmother’s house. Every Saturday morning, she used to go there to pound out her scales and grade pieces. She wasn’t a great pupil, always trying to avoid sight-reading and wanting to play her own compositions instead.
