Chris Tarrant

Born 10 October 1946

Tarrant established himself to a generation of children from 1974-1982 as co-host of the anarchic Saturday morning television show Tiswas.
His Capital Radio breakfast show, which began in 1987, further developed many of the ideas of that earlier show with a mix of music, information, competitions and larky discussion of tabloid news.

The Capital years showcased Chris's ability to offer seamless, ad-libbed links and made him a broadcasting phenomenon.

Since his success as a television presenter and games show host, Tarrant has ventured in and out of radio.
