Will Best

Presenter and Entrepreneur

With a contagious passion for all things music and entertainment, it's no surprise that Will started his career on some of the UK's biggest youth music programmes, from MTV to T4, via "Freshly Squeezed", 4Music's "The Crush" and "Trending Live", and channel 4's coverage of Snow Bombing and iTunes Festival. 

Simon Cowell personally picked Will to present his newest online talent format “You Generation”, a YouTube show featuring celebrity interviews and music acts as well as a monthly talent contest, which at launch became youtube's fastest growing channel. 

Will has also cast his net wider than just music, giving “Top Gear” a run for its money as one of the hosts on Channel 5’S Classic Car Show, and moving into factual documentaries with a series of three films for Channel 5 and the controversial but highly rated  BBC Three show “Is This Rape?  Sex On Trial”, which investigated teenager’s attitudes to consent. 
In 2016 Will presented CBBC’s biggest ever commission “Airmaggedon”, referred to as “Robot Wars” but with drones, the high octane entertainment extravaganza tested young contestants to the limit as they battled to determine which team could claim ultimate mastery of daring drone skills, along side regular shows for 4Music.

2017 started with a bang, as Will kicked off the year by co-hosting ITV1’s new Sunday night prime time entertainment show “Dance Dance Dance” alongside Alesha Dixon, and, in typically varied fashion, flexing his cultural chops as one of the hosts of Sky Arts flagship visual arts programme The Art Show.

Throughout the summer of 2017 Will presented at many of the world’s biggest music festivals, from Ultra in Miami, South Korea and Croatia, to Tomorrowland and Bestival. He is also the presenter for Redbull’s live festival coverage, hosting at Primavera, Roskilde and Montreaux Jazz Festival. 

2018 has seen Will continue to travel the world hosting festival coverage, regularly interviewing some of the biggest pop acts for 4Music, move into radio with slots on both Heart FM and BBC Radio 1, and land a very exciting (and soon to be announced) commission for iPlayer.
