Starting early

Sonia’s first foray into the world of radio broadcasting came at the tender age of just 14, when she presented a one-off show on BBC West Midlands to raise funds for Comic Relief. After graduating from university in 1994, she went on to join Sunrise Radio, the world’s first 24/7 Asian radio station which was then around a decade old.


Big break

In 2000, Deol had her big break in the form of a job as a newsreader and presenter with BBC London. Once she had her foot in the door at the BBC, Deol soon became a firm favourite, and was offered her own show on the BBC Asian Network when it relaunched in 2002. Previously a regional station, the new BBC Asian Network was a national station and now boasts around 600,000 regular listeners.
