Jim Lee (radio)

Jim Lee is a freelance continuity announcer on BBC Radio 4, a newsreader and announcer at the BBC World Service and also provides links for BBC 7. He was born in Nuneaton, England and joined the BBC in 1989. In the early 1990s he was involved in trials of DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting – i.e. Digital Radio), but was made redundant in 1997. Shortly after he re-joined as a freelance continuity announcer on Radio 4 and the World Service, and joined BBC7 in 2002. He is known for his distinctive accent, and often interjects humour into his announcements. After the Radio 4 UK Theme made it into the UK popular music charts, he introduced it by saying "You don't often hear a hit single on Radio 4... but here's the UK theme", possibly indicating support for the decision to end the theme's daily transmission or possibly not.
