Danny Baker is a well known English journalist, radio DJ, comedy writer, and screenwriter. Throughout his decade-long career, Danny Baker is known for his association with London’s regional TV and radio.
Born in Deptford in a middle-class working family, he was raised in Bermondsey. And the Bermondsey native who nowhere has a familiar face in the showbiz industry now has a legacy that needs no introduced. The guy himself is above every introduction.
Danny is well known for his work in the punk zine’s Sniffin’ Glue, which was presented by the New Musical Express. The journalism figure made his TV debut in 1980, presenting Twentieth Century Box for London Weekend Television and The Six O’ Clock Show. He turned a radio personality in 1989, presenting the BBC GLR, after which he joined BBC Rdio 5 in 1990.
The veteran journalist recently became a hot potato on the news outlets after he made a big blunder which came out as a tweet circling the sex of the newborn child of the Duke of Sussex and Duchess; Prince Harry and Meghan Michael.
The Royals welcomed their first child, a son named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor on May 10, 2019.

Danny shared a photo of a chimpanzee in the tweet. The tweet had now backfired him. While he is being investigated for the tweet following racism accusations, he has been sacked by BBC 5. The tweet was later deleted.
You simply don’t mess with the Royals!
Danny Baker has been a leading man for BBC 5 and a number of other TV shows. Over his decades of a career as a comedic writer, TV journalist, and screenwriter, Danny must have amassed a colossal net worth.
However, the details of his net worth and earnings as of 2019 is still unknown. For his work on the reality television sitcom titled I’m A Celebrity, Danny made $400 thousand annually for six years, starting in 2010.
As a senior figure in the journalism industry, Danny Baker could be making a lot and his net worth would be counted in high numbers only if he hadn’t mocked the Royals with his now-deleted tweet. After he shared a picture of a chimpanzee on his tweet while tweeting about Prince Harry and Megah’s firstborn, he was immediately accused of racial tweets.
Following the tweet, Danny was fired by BBC 5, where he has worked for nearly two decades. While he is being investigated over the tweet, the final verdict is yet to follow. Hope things don’t end up north for the veteran journalist and screenwriter.
