Charles Nove

Charles Alexis Nove (born 29 June 1960, London) is a British newsreader and continuity announcer for BBC radio and television.[1]

The son of Soviet historian Alec Nove, his earliest presentational experience was at Glasgow's Hospital Broadcasting Service in 1976. Nove has in the past served as a co-presenter and announcer on the original Come Dancing and announcer again for the gameshow Wipeout since 1995. He has also served as a BBC 1 continuity announcer and has presented Radio programmes on Radio 2, Jazz FM, Magic FM and many others.

For several years, he was also the presenter of the EuroMix in-flight audio entertainment channel, exclusive to Emirates Airlines, showcasing artists such as Regy Clasen and Paola e Chiara. Long-haul passengers on BMI flights are guided through a special in-flight Yoga session presented by Nove on their Relaxation Channel. Nove has covered for regular National Lottery announcer Alan Dedicoat. Since May 2011 Charles Nove has been a presenter on BBC Radio Oxford, where he broadcasts on Sunday between 6 and 9am.

In recent years he has provided holiday relief for BBC Radio 2 and what used to be Saga Radio in Scotland, and following John Marsh's retirement in February 2007 he became one of the regular newsreaders on the flagship breakfast show Wake Up to Wogan until its end in 2009. He was also the London studio technical operator when Terry Wogan presented his Radio 2 show from various locations around Europe during coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest and other outside broadcasts in the United Kingdom.

Nove is the co-owner of a Routemaster bus, with Ken Bruce, Alan Dedicoat, Steve Madden and David Sheppard.[2] On the Wogan show Nove was well known for his impersonation of Cyril "Blakey" Blake, the inspector from the 1970s television sitcom On The Buses.

Nove is the subject of Half Man Half Biscuit's "Nove on the Sly", a track from their 2000 album Trouble Over Bridgwater.
