So who exactly is Danny Lakey?

Staff Writer

SCA’s Hit Network has announced a new national midnight to dawn host, but many have been left wondering exactly who Danny Lakey is and where he’s been?

Never fear, because Radio Today is on the case of this somewhat mysterious new presenter. Originally from Western Australia and growing up in Perth, Lakey started out doing casual music shifts at hit90.9 Sea FM Gold Coast and has also worked at hit 92.9 Perth and the breakfast shift at Star 106.3 in Townsville.

He’s currently co-hosting breakfast across the Hit Network in Central Queensland alongside Carly Portch, until he steps into his new role in 2018.

“I’m super stoked on the new network show,” the self-confessed “pub quiz master and amateur comedian” told Radio Today.

“Stepping into the 2DayFM building has always been a dream of mine, so to be working from there will be awesome. [I’m] keen to see how I handle this late night slot… things are going to get weird.”

You can see Danny with Opposition leader Bill Shorten in this video. And wait for the moment when they share a kiss…

Did Bill Shorten KISS Lakey this morning?

I was on your show tonight. When I tried to call back (and I know you just thought I was being a pain in the arse) all I wanted to say was thank you for allowing me to give my perspective. Unwittingly, in not answering, you just proved the flaws in our society that are becoming more and more evident. There is no time to give… sometimes it is really important to look outside our own heads (take our thoughts beyond ‘reality’ TV, fucking smashed avo – seriously – why is this even a point of conversation) to branch out and listen to what is being said, only then can we learn that we can connect. Surely, your role as a person with the power to make people think; share – should enable them to do just that? There is such a lack of connection that it is actually frightening. You have a power to change it and so you should.
