Danny Lakey returns to the Goldie!

Danny Lakey is returning to his much-loved Gold Coast to join Bianca and Ben in the breakfast studio at 90.9 Sea FM. His return marks 10 years since he left the Gold Coast after first falling in love with radio, remarkably, and in a full-circle origin story, at 90.9 Sea FM!

“I studied and worked on the Gold Coast for five fantastic years. They were my formative years, so I see the Goldie as home for work, life and friends,” said Danny.

I walked into my first radio gig on the Gold Coast. After volunteering on community radio,I joined 90.9 Sea FM, drove the ‘Sea Cruisers’ and covered the midnight to dawn shift; so coming back to join two such incredible hosts in Bianca and Ben for breakfast is a thrill, and an absolutely a mood-board moment for me!

I worked as a lifeguard at Wet ‘n’ Wild and at Sea World – that’s kind of a rite of passage growing up on the Gold Coast – and Maccas Labrador, went to Uni at Griffith, lived right in the heart of Surfers Paradise, and headed to the Parkwood Tavern on a Thursday night! Ten years away from this gorgeous place on earth is enough. I’m coming home and I’m excited.”

Danny is no stranger to the early starts of breakfast radio. Until today, he was co-host of Hit NSW Breakfast with Maz & Lakey, and prior to that, hosted The Danny Lakey Show on Triple M National Nights. He has earned his radio wings with stints in the studio at Perth’s Mix94.5 and Hit Central Queensland before moving to national program slots for Hit’s mid-dawns then Hit National Late Nights.

His move follows the departure of Dan Anstey, who recently waved the Gold Coast farewell and moved back home to Brisbane with his young family, joining Marto and Margaux on Triple M Breakfast.

Sea FM Content Director Kim Czosnek said the return of Lakey to the Gold Coast was great news.
