Jez Nelson is a jazz broadcaster and television producer.
After working on several pirate jazz radio stations, including KJazz, he joined the newly licenced Jazz FM in the late 80s. Having left Jazz FM in 1991, Nelson joined Kiss 100 and, along with former colleagues Sonita Alleyne and Chris Philips, founded the media production company Somethin' Else. The business has become the largest independent radio production company in the UK and is a leading cross-platform content producer. In 2009, Nelson succeeded Alleyne as CEO of Somethin' Else. He has also presented many BBC television and radio programmes, including It'll Never Work for Children's BBC, which led to a presenter's role on the primetime Tomorrow's World show. He has also presented Formula Five and Radio 3's Jazz on 3.
