Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HON­OUR:

Dan DAN Walker will join BBC Break­fast at the end of Fe­bru­ary as a pre­sen­ter to re­place vet­eran Bill Tur­bull, who’s quit­ting the show.

Walker has more than 17 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing as a jour­nal­ist and pre­sen­ter.

He will join BBC Break­fast co-pre­sen­ter Louise Minchin on the fa­mous red sofa on a Mon­day to Wed­nes­day from 6am to 9.15am.

Dan cur­rently hosts Af­ter­noon Edi­tion on BBC Ra­dio 5 live, re­port­ing on the big­gest sto­ries and break­ing news of the day.

He’s been fa­mil­iar to foot­ball fans since 2009 as the face of Foot­ball Fo­cus, and has also pre­sented the BBC’s Match Of The Day and Fi­nal Score.

De­lighted Dan said: “It is an hon­our to be given this op­por­tu­nity and to fol­low in the foot­steps of some­one like Bill Turn­bull. The man has sig­nif­i­cant shoes to fill, so I hope I can do as good a job as he did wak­ing up the na­tion.”
