James Hengist Reeve, born 25 June 1950, is a cult English broadcaster, journalist, raconteur and radio phone-in host based in the Manchester area. James has hosted shows on Piccadilly Radio, BBC GMR (now BBC Radio Manchester), BBC Radio Five Live, The New Hallam FM, talkSPORT, TEAMtalk 252 stations and, up until July 2006, presented the late night phone-in show at Key 103.
Reeve joined the Manchester BBC Local radio station GMR in April 1995, presenting the afternoon show. In April 1998, he rejected an opportunity to join new station Century Radio to stay with GMR. Just a few months later, he left GMR in controversial circumstances with Reeve claiming he had been unfairly dismissed and had to explain complaints of "gratuitous use of racist language on and off-air."
