Sally Boazman / Speaker Profile

Sally Boazman

Sally Boazman

Sally Boazman is a broadcasting legend. Thanks to her travel reports and regular interactions with the likes of Chris Evans, Jeremy Vine and Steve Wright on their BBC radio shows, she is now well known to the nation as, Sally Traffic. Having become a cult figure, Sally is also known, as the patron saint of road users.

In a recent Radio Times poll, Sally was voted one of the most attractive female voices on UK radio.

Before moving on to radio broadcasting, Sally worked for a little while as an actress. However, broadcasting beckoned and Sally found herself working in current affairs at London Weekend Television (LWT), followed by a spell with AA Roadwatch, broadcasting traffic news bulletins to numerous stations, nationwide.

She then worked at the BBC World Service and the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS). Having served her apprenticeship, Sally soon worked her way up to become chief travel reporter on BBC Greater London Radio. Whilst there, she wrote and delivered scripts, for both radio and Newsroom South East.

In 1998, Sally Boazman made the big move to BBC Radio2. She then took up the role as the station's first designated travel reporter, quickly becoming the butt of jibes and innuendo from her fellow presenters. However, Sally does have broad shoulders and she continues to enjoy what she considers to be, a very special job.

Sally was recently honoured with an Outstanding Achievement Award on behalf of all the UK Truckers, for her traffic news on BBC Radio 2.
