Kaye Adams

Kaye Adams is one of the country’s most experienced live TV and radio broadcasters. Formerly known for her seven years at the helm of daytime chat show Loose Women, she is a regular presenter on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff and Radio Five Live. She is currently presenting her own breakfast radio show, Call Kaye, on BBC Radio Scotland every weekday morning.

Kaye is a sought-after contributor on a range of discussion and panel shows from Countdown to Question Time. She currently presents topical films for BBC's The One Show, and regularly appears in the studio to discuss the issues raised.

Kaye started her media career as a journalist trainee at Central Television in Birmingham after graduating from Edinburgh University with an MA hons in Politics and Economics. Her first coup was a one-hour interview with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as part of an award-winning documentary about Women In Politics.

In time, Kaye branched out into discussion shows and it’s in that area that she found her niche. She presented seven series of Scottish Women for STV; her own show, Kaye, for BBC2; Esther, also for BBC2; Central Weekend for Central TV; and, from 2000 till 2007, she anchored Loose Women, where her journalistic training, incisiveness and humour allowed her to steer the panel in a popular and engaging mix of topical issues and entertainment.
