  • Sally Boazman, known to many of her listeners as "Sally Traffic", is a British radio traffic reporter, best known for her work in the afternoons on the national BBC Radio 2, with more than eight million listeners. Her reporting "revolutionised" United Kingdom traffic news with the addition of live reports from motorists on mobile phones and lorry drivers on CB radio. Boazman's reporting is so up to date that the national Highways Agency uses her broadcast to update their own reports. Boazman gave her last weekday traffic report for Radio 2 on Friday 8 August 2014 and now broadcasts at weekends. Boazman was described as "bit of a superhero for motorists", by Autotrader UK as the 'sexiest voice on the radio' and by veteran broadcaster Steve Wright as a 'national treasure' who changed the way traffic reporting was done. Her fans have named a thoroughbred race horse (which occasionally even won), after her as well as lorry trucks. (en)
