Danny Watson


A vocational chameleon who found his natural home in broadcasting, Danny Watson started in television after a flatmate saw a newspaper ad for Spot On. Later he joined the crew on another kid’s classic: What Now? Watson’s natural energy was further harnessed on variety show Danny’s Cafe, and a TV3 version of Candid Camera. These days Watson is most associated with radio; he hosts the afternoon slot on Newstalk ZB.

I’m addicted to people. I just love people. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been in the game as long as I have. Danny Watson on his time in broadcasting, in a Listener interview, 2 September 2000
