    Fi Glover and Jane Garvey started their BBC radio careers in the 1990s - both following the fairly traditional route of working in local radio before moving to network radio at 5 Live and Radio 4. In 2017, Fi and Jane launched a new podcast for Radio 4 called Fortunately, which has become one of the BBC's most enduring and most lauded titles. Annie Macmanus joined Radio 1 in 2003, initially as a Broadcast Assistant, before making her way on-air a year later. After 17 years on the station, she signed off for the final time in 2022.
