Diana Luke is a Canadian-born radio presenter and hypnotherapist who grew up in Toronto, Ontario and works in the UK.

She presents a regular syndicated show which is broadcast simultaneously on several BBC regional radio stations Sheffield, Leeds, York and Humberside on a Sunday night between 9pm & 1am. Some listeners have criticised this move which cuts jobs and means less local output from the BBC.

Career[edit]

Radio[edit]

Luke has worked for many radio stations across the country. Her radio career started on Viking Radio in Kingston-upon-Hull in 1987, where she was their first female presenter. She also presented a weekend show on the Yorkshire Radio Network. After leaving YRN, Diana went to County Sound in Surrey as the mid-morning presenter, and later as one of the original presenters on the ill-fated overnight service The Superstation.

Diana Luke was the breakfast presenter and first voice heard on London's 102.2 Jazz FM opening day, on Sunday 4 March 1990.[1]

As of 2016, she presents a regular show on BBC Radio Sheffield, Leeds, York and Humberside on a Sunday between 9pm & 1am. The last hour changes to a pre-recording to The Luke of Love until 1am. Diana is a regular freelance presenter for BBC Radio Manchester, BBC Radio Leeds and BBC Radio Sheffield.

Clinical Therapist[edit]

Luke is a professionally qualified clinical hypnotherapist, psychotherapist and health and fitness advisor, and is a member of the National Register of Hypno-Psychotherapists. She also specialises in Mindfulness Workshops for business, education and media sections.

Private life[edit]

Diana Luke is the mother of four adult children and has eight grandchildren to date.
