From student radio to the national stage, Robert Bruce has shaken up the commercial scene over the past 3 years. Whilst still at university the then 22-year-old was scouted by Capital Xtra and joined the team with a weekly Friday overnight slot. Since then the ambitious young presenter has risen through the ranks, hosting the Capital XTRA HOMEGROWN show (Saturday Drive) and midweek evenings 7-10pm from Monday through to Thursday.
Interviewing the likes of Stormzy, Jorja Smith, Dave, Ella Mai, Aitch, Aj Tracey, Wiz Kid, David, Wretch 32, Nines, Headie One, Daniel Kaluyaa, Micheal Ward and more, Robert has been championed for his laid back approach and the deeper conversation on Black British culture, new music and cultural impact.
Outside of the studio, he covers external events including the Mobo Awards Red Carpet, Black Panther European Premiere, Wireless Festival and more. He is also a published journalist (The Times/ Sunday Times) with a Broadcast Journalism degree from the University of Leeds.
This year Robert was the host of the MOBO Awards special Friday night Instagram LIVE show The Lowdown In Lockdown which saw him have conversations with the likes of Angela Yee, Eva Apio, Kranium, George The Poet. He also hosted the virtual watch party for Blue Story, interviewing the cast via IG Live as the film as fans streamed the film at the same time.
Robert Bruce is a name you will be hearing more often as he continues to conquer his way through the UK.
