Nigel presents the Jazz FM’s weekday afternoon show 3-6pm and can be heard nationally on Freeserve, DAB and www.jazzfm.com. For Nigel Williams, music has always played a major part in his life. As a child he displayed a talent to play any instrument he was given. “ I think I’ve always distinctively known that Jazz is the highest form of creativity in music. I’m in awe of the greats and their level of virtuosity.”
Nigel is a freelance presenter for London’s Smooth Radio 102.2, BBC London 94.9’s overnight show, Magic 105.4 and more recently presented the BBC Surrey breakfast show for 6 months.
Nigel’s first presenter job in London was at the launch of London's Heart 106.2, His late show became Heart’s first market leading show. Over time, Late Night Love Songs evolved from a classic romantic music affair into a chill-out zone designed for stressed out Londoners. Late Night Love Songs defining feature was Love Letters, true-life relationship stories sent in by listeners. This proved so popular that Nigel published a book based on the stories. Nigel took a closer look at sex & relationships when he teamed up with Dr Pam Spurr to present Heart 2 Heart. This three-year partnership provided Heart 106.2 with a Sony Award and Londoners plenty to talk about!
Nigel presented The Food Show on Classic Gold on Sundays 2-4pm. Nigel was joined by Michael Barry and Jilly Goolden to bring listeners new recipes, wine advice and health tips.

Nigel published a book of some of the best stories. The show also included Heart to Heart, Sony award-winning phone-in show for listeners with sexual and emotional problems anchored by Nigel with an expert psychologist.
