In April 2006, the then-model Chung was offered the job of co‑host on Popworld on Channel 4, a music show known for its irreverent and awkward style of interviews. Chung and co‑host Alex Zane also presented a weekly radio show called Popworld Radio. Chung then moved to Channel 4, where she guest presented Big Brother's Big Mouth and appeared as a panellist on quiz show 8 out of 10 Cats. She hosted a number of T4 Movie Specials, 4Music Specials, T4 Holiday Mornings along with T4's coverage of many music festivals. In January 2008, Chung became one of the four anchor T4 presenters. She hosted T4’s Vanity Lair, a reality show investigating the concept of “beauty”. When the show was mentioned in a later interview, “Chung raise[d] her eyebrows, indicating embarrassment”. As well as her work on T4, she became a long-time host of Channel 4’s early morning music programme Freshly Squeezed beginning in September 2007. In addition to her Channel 4 commitments, Chung presented the ITV1 series Get a Grip (2007) and BBC Three's The Wall (2008). In mid-2008, Chung began to host more fashion-oriented programming. She was the “roving reporter” on Channel 4's “Gok's Fashion Fix”. On the programme, Chung roadtested the latest fashion trends with members of the public, and interviewed fashion designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier, Margherita Missoni and Christian Lacroix. She described it as “pretty much my dream job”. Chung also hosted a T4 fashion and music show called Frock Me, with fashion designer Henry Holland. In 2009, Chung was awarded the Elle Style Award for “Best TV Presenter” and Glamour’s award for Best TV Presenter in 2009. Also in 2009, she received Glamour's at the magazine's annual award ceremony. Chung left Channel 4 and the United Kingdom in April 2009 to pursue a US career. She presented It's On with Alexa Chung for MTV. The live, daily show—billed as TRL's replacement—featured celebrity talk, live music and online interaction with viewers. The show was cancelled in December 2009. She returned to UK TV screens in April 2010 with a second series of Frock Me. In October 2010, she began hosting Gonzo With Alexa Chung, an informal British chat show previously hosted by Zane Lowe, for MTV Rocks. In January 2011, she co‑hosted NBC's “2011 Golden Globe Arrivals Special” with Carson Daly and Natalie Morales. The live show featured interviews with television and film stars as well as segments devoted to fashion on the red carpet. Chung presented the iTunes Festival in July 2011. Chung has since worked on 24 Hour Catwalk, acting as the host and a judge. In 2012, Chung soon became the founding co-host for the nightly music show Fuse News. In December 2013, it was announced that Chung would be leaving Fuse News to focus on other endeavours. From September 2015, Chung will host an online documentary series for Vogue UK.
