Dan Lobb spent time working in management and PR before embarking on a career in TV in 2001. Starting at a local cable station, he assisted the sports producer and was soon asked if he wanted to host a midweek sports show.
That's where his presenting career began. Several shifts at Channel 5 News followed before being offered a contract at Sky thanks to a successful screen test. Dan presented on Sky News, Sky Sports News, Sky Poker and various Sky Sports shows for 8 years, clocking up well over 6000 hours of live broadcasting experience in studios and on outside broadcasts.
Dan left Sky in 2009 and was offered the newly created sports presenter role on GMTV at the beginning of 2010. He was retained as Sports Editor on Daybreak and soon established himself as the regular stand-in anchor on the sofa as well as delivering regular adventure and lifestyle features. Dan became the main presenter in early December 2011.
Away from the sofa he appeared as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing in 2011 where he comprehensively proved he had better stick to presenting. His other television credits include Loose Women, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, It Takes Two, Ad of the Year, Britain's Secret Treasures and The Chase Celebrity Special. He is also a regular presenter on TalkSport.
Dan left Daybreak in late 2012 and currently co-presents Cowboy Builders on Channel 5.
With nigh on 100,000 Twitter followers and with devilishly handsome looks, Dan Lobb is a highly sought after man.
