Who is Ambrose Harcourt?
The eldest of a large family, Ambrose, whose original last name was Obiajulu, left Nigeria by himself in 1964 in order to complete his studies in the UK.
He started off in Norwich before making his way to Kings Lynn. His love for music first manifested itself during his time in college, when he and a select group of his close friends started a company that planned events and concerts. As a result, Ambrose got his start as a DJ in bars and clubs in East London before going on to St. George’s Hospital radio in Tooting.
Ambrose Harcourt’s Career
Ambrose moved to Sussex in 1982 and subsequently started working for Southlands Hospital Radio. Here, he ran into radio DJ Simon Mayo, who suggested that he apply to a station that was just starting up. Regency Radio Brighton’s director of programming was Ambrose Harcourt. Additionally, he served as a presenter for The Love Hour, The Love Zone, and Sunday Soul Breakfast.
Ambrose then started using the stage name “Harcourt,” which is derived from the Nigerian city of Port Harcourt. Ambrose moved his family to Worthing at this time, and he later joined Southern Sound. Due to his distinctive voice and delivery, he went on to become one of the most well-known and adored commentators in the South.
Soul Direction, The Love Hour, Nighttime Heart and Soul, and the Love Zone were among Ambrose’s shows; his family described the infamous Love, Bites Top 3 as “compulsive listening.” Later, the station’s name was changed to Heart FM, then Southern FM.
Ambrose has had shows on Juice FM, Arrow FM, Sovereign FM, and other stations in Sussex and the south, in addition to Regency Radio, which he helped establish in Brighton. According to Jay Jackson of Regency Radio, “Ambrose leaves a void in Regency Radio that will never be filled and that no one could fill.

He raised $143,000 by taking part in a cycling challenge and a breathtaking five-day hike up the Inca Trail in Peru. Ambrose completed this accomplishment in 2019 not long after experiencing hard medical therapy for his condition.
He also worked with The Princes Trust, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research, Scope, and Mencap in addition to many more organisations. “We will carry on his wonderful work in his honour by naming our new studios after him once they are ready,” Jay Jackson of Regency Radio stated. “He will never be forgotten and always in our hearts.”

Hello, Ambrose I’m at a loss for words and don’t even know where to start. It has come as a complete shock to learn of your demise, and I still can’t believe it. I’ll never forget your encouraging phone call when I first started giving the travel news. You complimented it on how amazing it sounded before urging me to write about some of the Brighton and Hove events. Every event I cover moving forward will be for you. Peace be with you, dear friend. Many Loves,
Jay Jackson mentioned.
Regency Radio has a gaping void left by Ambrose that neither can nor will be replaced. The awful news has rocked the whole Regency Radio staff. Ambrose was a genuine expert in his field. He appeared to do it naturally, and his voice blended in with the music he played. Even if he only uttered my name on AIR, I would still be giddy from the mere sound of his voice. Ambrose was an excellent person.
Such terrible news. Ambrose was always the best late-night radio host; I used to adore listening to him on Southern FM, and it was an honour to work with him here at Regency Radio in Brighton.
