Conor Knight

Presenter, Radio Essex, FunKids & Baffled Podcast


Conor recently presented BBC Radio 1 Christmas daytimes where he took the reins of the Ricky, Melvin and Charlie show.

Conor is currently presenting mid-mornings on Radio Essex – where he’s been bringing his tongue in cheek demeanour, love for music and popstar nonsense to his dedicated and growing band of listeners since 2018.

His radio journey started on community radio back in 2017 where all he wanted to do was play the music he loved and talk about popstars being ridiculous.

This led on to him joining FunKids where he brings his brand of fun and joy to kids (and adults) across the UK since 2019, working his way from a weekend slot to now, hosting weekday evenings.

The pandemic saw Conor launch a comedy fact podcast called Baffled – which has charted in the in the UK Top 20 & US Top 40 – this has saw the likes of Paul Chowdry and Yvette Fielding drop by for a chat.

Conor feels equally at home in the studio as he does being out and about covering festivals such as Creamfields, CBBC’s Summer Social and the Brit Awards – where he gets to interview celebrities and musicians.

Hailing from Hornchurch, Conor is a typical Essex lad, and outside radio enjoys, Gigs, fashion and a trip to his local for a pint.
