“Hello, We’re Matt & Dani from Heart Breakfast. It’s our dulcet tones you hear on Heart between 6 & 10 every weekday morning.
Most of you will be familiar with Dani’s cackling giggle and Matt’s mutley-esque laugh.”
“We’ve both been working in radio fulltime for 10 years”. Matt started at a radio station in Kent called Mercury FM as a member of the street team and Dani was a sales executive and travel reporter at South City in Southampton, before she returned to Devon to follow in Matt’s footsteps and joined Plymouth Sound as part of their promotional team.
Matt’s career moved him to Devon in the early noughties to work for one of our sister stations in Barnstaple as the breakfast show presenter, a move that was mirrored by Dani in Plymouth and fate eventually brought them together in June 2008 when they started working together in Exeter.
“On the show we bring you up-to-date news, vital local travel information, music that you know and love and juicy bits of showbiz gossip (a Dani speciality) to prepare you for the day ahead.”
“As with all parents, we both juggle family life with our jobs although the early start means we don’t have to endure the joys of the morning school run, but we aim to make it more bearable for you.” Dani has a 2 and a half year old daughter called Minnie who looks to be following in her Mum’s footsteps as she never stops talking and Matt has 2 step-children, Emily (7) and Eddie who is 10.
Dani is often referred to as the other woman in Matt’s life as they spend so much time together and it takes a very special bond to ensure this relationship remains intact. “Trust and honesty is the key to our friendship”, so Matt knows he can demand cups of tea when Dani gets a spare five minutes and she can tease him about his ever expanding waistline without the repercussions of having to sleep in the spare room.
“So, no matter how your day starts, whether you’re dragging the kids out of bed or shovelling that final slice of toast in your mouth on the way out the door, why not have us on in the kitchen, the car or even the shower… we promise we won’t look!”
