GEMMA-LEIGH JAMES

Multi Award-winning Radio & TV Presenter

Gemma-Leigh James is a multi award-winning Scottish Radio/TV Presenter and Producer. 

A confident and upbeat presenter who is equally comfortable on radio as she is in front of the camera. Currently presenting on Marlow FM’s flagship Breakfast Show. In 2019 she won Silver award for Best Female Presenter in the national radio awards and again in 2020 for the second year running.

Gemma-Leigh can regularly be seen in and around the Berkshire area producing and presenting content for broadcast which has seen her interview many celebrities. 

In 2018 Gemma-Leigh presented at the Gravity Grand Prix joining one of the competitors as co-pilot as she sped around corners and chicanes. After mentioning her fear of heights Marlow FM decided she should tackle the 'leap of faith' during a live broadcast. Gemma-Leigh is also afraid of snakes but put this fear to one side and interviewed a 14 foot Burmese python which ended up wrapping itself around her. Her broadcasting skills were rewarded when she was awarded the 'Who Dares Wins' award by the radio station. 

 

2019 was an equally busy year for her, events including presenting at big events including Pub In The Park, Marlow Town Regatta, Marlow Carnival and The Gravity Grand Prix. 

Despite 2020 being a challenging year and Covid-19 restricting many of the activities and events planned this year, undaunted Gemma-Leigh still managed to present and gather content whether this was interviews via zoom or socially distant and even set up her home studio so she could still film and also present her radio shows from home. 

Originating from Aberdeenshire in Scotland, Gemma is a self-driven, motivated and passionate broadcaster who is capable of self-shooting and editing.

Excellent presenter, a lady that all radio stations would love to have.

 Wow what a woman! Sounds great and clearly very talented. Loved the daredevil bits. 

A really friendly, warm and enthusiastic person. Full of passion and clearly game for a laugh.

Gemma-Leigh exudes energy and vitality. She demonstrates versatility.

Great personality and energy shining through in Gemma-Leigh's presenting skills. Listener interaction is good, especially liked The Cliffhanger idea. Very brave of Gemma to confront her fears on air (heights and snakes etc) and makes for interesting radio too. Gemma-Leigh is obviously a committed member of the station team, who regularly goes the extra mile.

Smashed it!  You've got me hook like and sinker...will definitely be tuning in to you when I can!

Gemza has a unique style which is infectious.  The quality of her audio was terrific and made me wish I had heard all the clips in their entirety.  Great stuff on adapting to Cornovirus conditions.   Well done.

Lots of passion, lots of energy, Gemma-Leigh obviously loves to present. A nice mix of of audio pieces, Gemma appears to be as comfortable interviewing celebs as she does her local listeners. High energy, but the right side of high! Gemma is confident in her job, which makes the listener relax and enjoy the show.

What a professional!  I can understand why she received silver last year, maybe gold this year. 

Fun, upbeat style - like the fact Gemma-Leigh heads out and about covering local events.
