Radio Host, TV Presenter & MC
Dan Anstey is a qualified electrical engineer and has an IQ of 134, making him officially a genius and eligible to join Mensa – but fortunately for us, radio is where his heart lies.
It all began when Dan met Leon Murray in the hallway of Brisbane’s community television station in 2007, where they teamed up to create the comedy movie review program Reel2Reel. A year later they began working at Brisbane’s Nova 106.9 together, handing out icy cold free stuff from the back of a panel van.
Dan began doing live crosses for Nova Brisbane’s breakfast show each morning and anchoring a weekly Sunday night panel show. From there he landed his own program The Dan Anstey Show which aired weekdays from 1pm to 4pm until mid-2012 when he made the move to Melbourne.
Dan worked alongside Hughesy & Kate for breakfast 6-9am weekdays on Nova 100.3 in 2012 and 2013 and with Fifi & Dave every morning of the FOX FM breakfast show in Melbourne in 2014 and 2015.
Dan has been a regular contributor to The Project since 2010, reporting from Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast. He has hosted two seasons of the Nine Network TV series ManSpace, along with Shane Jacobson and Dale Vine.
For the last 6 years, Dan was a co-host on the hit90.9 Sea FM breakfast show on the Gold Coast.
He is currently breakfast anchor of the Triple M Brisbane breakfast show alongside Greg ‘Marto’ Martin and Margaux Parker from 6-9am weekdays and is a regular weather presenter on Weekend Today.
Dan's personality and talents bring humour, playfulness and passion to the MC role which was integral in keeping the crowd engaged, entertained and informed throughout the evening. During planning and briefing stages Dan was always professional and happy to adapt to last-minute changes.”

Dan was a fantastic MC, he brought a professional energy to the event and as you’d expect, a little cheekiness! He kept our full program moving smoothly and engaged the audience throughout, no small feat considering the ages in the room ranged from 17 – 80. I’d be more than happy to have him back any time.

Dan makes my job incredibly easy as he is adaptable to any event and situation whether fun, professional, exciting or serious, he is reliable and able to ad-lib and improvise whenever we need. I would not hesitate to recommend Dan for any hosting, speaking or production role.
