The BBC has confirmed that DJ Charlie Sloth, who hosted The 8th, The Rap Show, and ran ‘Fire in the Booth’, is leaving for Apple Music. He had been central in BBC’s hip-hop offerings for 10 years.
On his new fortunes, Sloth announced:
“After almost 10 years of dedicating my life to BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra and achieving everything I set out to, I have decided the time has come to leave the BBC and seek a new challenge.
I want to thank everybody who has listened to me over the years and supported me in everything I have done.
I love you and the journey continues.”
Sloth is expected to join Zane Lowe at Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio show. Providing unique radio content is a major way Apple Music aims to set itself apart from its major competitor, Spotify.
