Sir Terry Wogan broadcaster, writer and national treasure.
"Fran Godfrey has a voice like Waterford Crystal and a laugh that bubbles and sparkles like the Trevi Fountain. If letters of slavering adoration are anything to go by, she's the only reason a high proportion of middle-aged men, who ought to know better, listen to 'Wake Up to Wogan', which is supposed to be my show on Radio 2."
Steve Wright BBC Radio 2 Presenter.
"I've worked with Fran for over twelve years and I've never heard her make a mistake. She also has great hair, and a smashing voice."
Ken Bruce Broadcaster, BBC Radio 2.
"Fran's is one of the great voices - clear, beautiful and friendly - the perfect blend of warmth and authority. Added to which, she's a joy to work with!"
Bob Harris OBE Broadcaster, BBC Radio 2 and Old Grey Whistle Test.
"Fran is absolutely wonderful. As a voice on the radio she is authoritative and true. As a friend and working colleague, she is an absolute gem."
Jeremy Vine Broadcaster BBC Radio 2, BBC1 Panorama, BBC 2 Eggheads.
"One of the top news voices in the business - smart, experienced, sure-footed and the consummate pro. If Fran hasn't done it, it wasn't worth doing."
Bob Shennan Controller BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music.
"Fran has been an important part of the sound of BBC Radio 2, Europe's most popular Radio station, for 22 years. During that time she has performed the duties of a BBC Announcer with great commitment and skill. She will be a considerable loss to the sound of the network. Fran has an outstanding broadcasting voice and for years has been a familiar and re-assuring presence to the Radio 2 audience. Fran is an excellent News Reader and a calm and totally reliable Continuity Announcer, a role which has required her both to broadcast and to ensure the proper play-out of programmes on the network."
Janice Long Broadcaster and TV Presenter.
"If I had a pound for the number of people who tell me how much they love Fran Godfrey I would now have my dream home in France! Fran has been blessed with the most beautiful voice - warm, sexy and captivating. She is one of a rare breed. She grabs your attention with the serious news and equally shines when doing the funny stories. I can hear Fran reading the news on a TV drama, voicing a documentary, doing commentary, voicing commercials....I have already asked Fran to record my favourite books for me. I suspect she won't have the time."
Sally 'Traffic' Boazman Broadcaster and Radio 2 Travel Presenter.
"Fran Godfrey is the ultimate professional. Her delivery and approach to scripts of all kinds is exemplary, bringing intelligence, understanding and polish to all her work. After years of experience at BBC Radio Two, she is highly respected and regarded across the entire United Kingdom. And she has the voice of an Angel."
Richard Allinson broadcaster. "Fran's voice is wonderful, her warmth is genuine, her wit razor sharp, her professionalism unmatched. She's also utterly lovely to work with."
Gail Ashton Assistant Editor, BBC Radio Newsroom.
"Fran is a consummate professional. I have worked with her for many years and can trust her to read any item of news beautifully - from a world-changing event to the light-hearted end story."
