Danny Matthews is a multi UK commercial radio award winning presenter, MC Event Host & DJ.
He was interested in DJing and radio from a very early age and was the church youth club DJ and secondary
school DJ in Salford and even the wedding DJ for his cousin at aged just 12!
Danny’s journey into radio began aged 14 when his Mum answered a plea for Kids to come in to help on a
new Saturday morning show on Piccadilly Radio in Manchester (Danny’s local station). He then stayed at the
station for over a dozen years working his way up the career ladder from broadcast assistant answering
phones for Chris Evans (yes, the talented ginger media man), appearing on ‘The Late Night Funster Show’
from aged 15 and getting his own show on Key 103 aged just 18!! Danny went on to be programmes coordinator, promotions & sponsorship producer, Head of Production and presenter.
Danny has also hosted the breakfast show on Century / Real North West, Capital Gold, The Local Radio
Group Network to 27 stations across the UK, Tower FM, Imagine FM and many stations over the past 30
The Bay asked Danny to join them on a freelance basis in 2008 presenting Saturday Breakfast and filling in
for the other presenters during the week. After a year of doing this Danny was asked to take over the
weekday breakfast show permanently in November 2009 and stayed there for almost 10 years until the
studios closed in 2019. This included 14 months when The Bay became Heart North Lancashire & Cumbria.
During his time here he won many UK commercial radio awards including ‘Best Local Breakfast Show’ in the
whole of the UK in 2012 and another for his part in the Storm Desmond coverage of 2015.
Danny also hosted lots of events in the region such as carnivals, festivals, theatre shows, award ceremonies,
charity balls, DJ sets, commentating, promotions, appearances and more and continues to do this now with
his own company Danny Matthews Entertainment. If you would like to book Danny to host your event as MC
or DJ please get in touch
I look forward to being with you on the airwaves!
