BBC WM's Danny Kelly

The outrageous, outspoken and often hilarious Danny Kelly presents BBC WM's afternoon show, every weekday from 2pm on 95.6FM.

Joined by his long-suffering producer Mark 'Ginner' Newman, Danny loves to get to grips with the more bizarre and quirky stories breaking in the West Midlands and plays some great music to boot.

Recently, Danny crowned himself the "undisputed heavyweight champion of the airwaves" after winning a charity boxing match against a rival DJ from another radio station.

Born and bred in Liverpool, Danny came to the Midlands when he was 18 and is regarded as something of a jack of all trades. He's a fully qualified chef, having worked in New York and Spain. A second career selling second-hand cars followed.

After getting a taste for radio on Coastline Radio in Nerja on the Costa del Sol in Spain, Danny retrained as a journalist and acted as a reporter for BBC WM before moving onto presenting.

In 2006, in a story that gained national publicity, a piglet named Wayne Rooney broke his trotter on the same day that England footballing ace Wayne Rooney suffered a serious foot injury in the run-up to the World Cup.

When Danny learned that the pig was bound for the slaughterhouse, he stepped in and purchased Wayne (the pig not the footballer), essentially saving the piglet's life.

Wayne the pig currently lives on a farm near Birmingham.
