Suzi Perry is one of the most respected and popular broadcasters working in TV and radio today, with an extensive body of work across sport, popular factual, and features, as well as radio. Perhaps best known as the first permanent female anchor of BBC One's Formula 1 coverage, Suzi has led TNT Sports’ (formerly BT Sport) MotoGP coverage for the past 6 years. For the last two decades, Suzi has travelled the world to present the biggest races, speaking to the stars at the forefront of motorsport – she is understandably considered the ‘Queen of the Pit Lane’ and a true trailblazer.
It’s not all about wheels and petrol though, Suzi’s other sport hosting credits include the BBC's live coverage of Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, the London Marathon, the Trooping of the Colour, the London Olympics, the Great North Run, and the legendary Oxford & Cambridge Boat Race.
Growing up surrounded by music (her dad was a leading band manager, booking agent and venue promoter, and her godfather was a founding member of White Snake), Suzi has a deep love for radio and live performance. She has regularly presented shows for BBC Radio 2 and, following a hugely positive response from the audience, she has also covered the Drivetime show as well as presenting a documentary looking at the music playlist choices of the world’s leading F1 drivers.
Known for her love of technology, Suzi hosted Channel 5's hugely popular Gadget Show for 8 years, covering an astonishing 17 series. During this time, she also presented Gadget Show Live at the NEC and has been the technology ambassador for the Ideal Home Show.
Suzi's numerous TV credits include How to Take Stunning Pictures and Operation Homefront for Channel 5, House Call, City Hospital, Superstars, Watchdog and the National Lottery for BBC One, and Treasure Hunt and F1 Rewind on BBC Two.
Suzi has appeared on Christmas specials of Question Of Sport and Robot Wars. She has appeared as a guest on shows including Richard Osman’s House of Games, The One Show, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Eggheads, and Pointless Celebrities, to name a few. She has also hosted features on This Morning, The Alan Titchmarsh Show and GMB.
Over the years she has also enjoyed her role as a contributing journalist, working with titles such as The Telegraph, The Sunday Times, Motorcycle News, T3, Stuff Magazine, The Radio Times, Top Gear, and MSN.
As an accomplished corporate host, she has worked with many brands and companies, including Karcher, IMI, Global Mobile Awards, The Boat Show, HSBC, BT, DELL, Suzuki, Fiat, Yamaha, Zoom Auction for F1, Phillips, EE, 02, Nikon, Honda, Mercedes, and Royal Mail.
Suzi is a huge animal lover and, when not working, she spends her time exploring nature and practicing yoga. With an honorary degree from Wolverhampton University and a season ticket for Wolverhampton Wanders, Suzi hasn’t forgotten where home is and she is immensely proud of her Black Country roots.
