Xfm sign Danny Wallace for breakfast

Danny Wallace is joining Xfm London to present the breakfast show from next month.

Danny has previously done work for stations Radio 2, 6 Music and Absolute Radio – and had a spell on Xfm’s weekend line-up in 2008.

Danny also does TV work and is an author and journalist. His book ‘Yes Man’ was adapted for the big-screen starring Jim Carrey, whilst the screen-play adaption for ‘Friends Like These’ is currently underway. He’ll take on the 6.30-10am slot on Xfm London from 1st August. He takes over from previous breakfast presenter Dave Berry, who moved to Global Radio’s sister station Capital FM earlier this year.

Danny says: “I’ve been a fan of Xfm for as long as it’s been going and to get the Breakfast Show gig is a dream come true. Its listeners are smart and funny, its music cutting edge, and its logo light green – the three most important elements of successful breakfast broadcasting. I can’t overstate how keen I am and how hard I will work to make the show the best it can be. I can’t wait.”

Xfm’s Programme Director Andy Ashton told us: “We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Danny Wallace to the Xfm Breakfast Show. Danny’s intelligence, humour and passion for music make him the perfect match for our audience. His achievements so far are incredible and we can’t wait to build on that with the launch of the brand-new show.”
