Dan Walker - BBC Breakfast Presenter (1)

Dan Walker is a news presenter on 5 News.

Dan was an integral part of the BBC Sport team covering the 2010 FIFA World Cup and spent the summer reporting from a double-decker bus travelling across South Africa.

The 5000 mile journey included visiting cities, townships as well as social projects and historical sights which provided UK viewers with a flavour of the host nation both inside and out of the stadia.

In addition to presentation work on The Six Nations in the past Dan has also presented sports bulletins on the BBC News Channel and BBC Network News. He’s appeared on Celebrity Mastermind and he has been a guest on A Question Of Sport.

Dan’s first foray into broadcasting was co-presenting two shows on the University of Sheffield’s Sure FM student radio station – the midweek sports-themed evening show and ‘Dan & Edd In The Afternoon’, for which he and co-presenter Ed Hoyland were nominated for a BBC Radio One Student Radio award.

In 1999 Dan moved to a full-time career with a four year stint as a sports presenter and commentator for Manchester’s Key 103 radio. In his time at Key 103 he presented the regular midweek sports show and picked up three Sony awards, three New York Radio Awards and was nominated as commercial radio Presenter Newcomer of the Year.

Soon after, Dan moved into TV with a 6-month spell at Granada Television in Manchester as sports presenter and commentator on the Football League Review.

In 2004 he joined the BBC regional news programme North West Tonight. In his 18 months there he was nominated for a number of awards and won the Royal Television Society Sports Award in 2005 for Regional Sports Presenter of the Year.
