Danny Baker Career

Danny started his radio career on BBC Radio London in 1989, presenting Weekend Breakfast from 6 to 9 am on Saturdays and Sundays. This show was produced by Chris Evans, who became a good friend to Danny. With GLR finally opting for a more orthodox breakfast show at weekends, Danny moved to the 10 am to 1 pm slot on Sundays.

In November 2019,  He launched a twice-weekly podcast entitled The Treehouse co-hosted by Louise Pepper. The format is a continuation of former non-football radio shows being based upon humorous stories from listeners, often relating to pop culture. From August 2020, The Treehouse podcast moved to a paid-only subscription model on Patreon.

On 15 March 2007 to September of the same year, Baker hosted the All Day Breakfast Show, a podcast to reach listeners beyond BBC London’s FM radio reach. Regulars Amy Lamé, Baylen Leonard, and David Kuo all contributed and the first show featured an appearance by comedian and actor Peter Kay.

Initially launched in March 2007, the All Day Breakfast Show became rebranded in September of that year as The All Day Breakfast Show In Color and a weekly download fee of £2 was applied to the podcast. The full-length podcast became made available solely through Wippit and edited highlights were made available as a teaser through iTunes.

In 1990, He joined the newly launched BBC Radio 5, presenting Sportscall, a phone-in sports quiz broadcast every Saturday lunchtime. Danny joined BBC Radio 1 in October 1993, taking over the weekend mid-morning show from 10 am to 1 pm from Dave Lee Travis who had resigned on air after the sackings instigated by Matthew Bannister and Trevor Dann during the early 1990s.
From 2002 until 2012, Baker presented the daily morning radio show on BBC Radio London, and in 2007 also presented the channel’s all-day podcast, the All Day Breakfast Show. In 2012 and 2017 Danny published a three-volume autobiography, which became used as the basis for the 2015 BBC sitcom Cradle to Grave. In 2019, the BBC dismissed Danny after he posted a Tweet that was widely regarded as racist.
