Siegfried Idyll Richard Wagner
Margherita’s laid-back style has made her a big hit with late night Classic FM listeners, but she’s equally at home on stage hosting large-scale concert events.
Margherita is equally at home presenting for Classic FM, interviewing the Prime Minister or fronting television shows.
As well as hosting Smooth Classics from 10pm to 1am every weekday evening, she can be regularly heard on Classic FM’s sister station, Heart.
After graduating from the University of Central England in Birmingham, Margherita began her radio career at the city’s BRMB before moving to another of Classic FM’s sister stations, Capital Radio.
Margherita first appeared on Classic FM in April 2007, presenting the six-part series 'When Classic Meets Jazz', which examined what happens when jazz and classical music come together. She became part of the station’s regular on-air presenter team a year later.
As well as her thriving radio career she has worked on numerous television shows, including Channel 4’s pop strand T4 and BBC1’s Top Of The Pops.
She is an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust and is heavily involved in supporting our charity, The Classic FM Foundation.
Margherita regularly hosts Classic FM Live concerts at the Royal Albert Hall and also presents the annual Schools Proms across three nights each November.
