TV, Podcast & Radio Host
TV, Podcast & Radio Host Tyler West is one of the UK’s most exciting young talents who has soared in popularity across British households with his dancing prowess in the 2022 BBC1 series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Tyler is best known for his hit daily radio show ‘The Home Straight with Tyler West on Kiss’ which reaches close to a million listeners per week and has seen a 28% increase on the previous year! Tyler’s love of music is deeply embedded into his personality and is clear to see why he has built such a loyal audience on his radio drive time show. His musical passions shone through in Strictly where he surprisingly performed to the Garage song ‘Flowers’, a very first for the prime time BBC show. DJ’ing began for Tyler in 2019 when he was signed to the radio giant and he regularly performs at DJ events in the UK and internationally, including Kiss’ Ibiza Summer Pool Party events bringing his signature upbeat energy.
The charismatic presenter’s TV career is also going from strength to strength. In 2021, Tyler hosted BBC THREE’s series ‘Flat Out Fabulous’, an interior design show for millennials which showcased Tyler’s engaging and warm presenting style. As a regular presenter for MTV, Tyler is also the Host of The MTV Movie Show – an online series deep diving into the latest film releases and he regularly interviews Hollywood A-Listers including Idris Elba, Daniel Craig and Jack Black, to name a few. Feeding his passion for storytelling, Podcasts have always appealed to Tyler and resulted in his original idea ‘Every Day Hustle’ being developed and produced by Studio71 UK in 2018. Later in 2020, Tyler was the host of MTV’s Celebrity Ex On The Beach Podcast and has co-hosted on the Official Love Island podcast in 2022.
This year, Tyler ran the London Marathon for Youth UK, a charity that he is a proud ambassador for. He regularly speaks out about the importance of supporting young people and has spent time mentoring those in his local community with local charities.
