HERE is how you can apply to be a chief presenter on BBC Breakfast.

Following Dan Walker announcing his departure, the BBC is seeking someone to work with Sally Nugent, Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt on the UK’s most-watched morning show.

The key role is to inform and entertain viewers with everything they need for the day ahead. 

Dan announced last week that he will be leaving BBC Breakfast after six years on May 17.

The presenter joined the programme in 2016 to host the morning news programme alongside Louise Minchin, but is moving on to become the lead anchor of Channel 5 News.

Now the search is on to find his replacement, with the BBC advertising the top sofa role via its careers site.

Based at Media City in Salford, the presenter needs to combine the knowledge and confidence to deal with the main stories and the ability to entertain and inform millions of viewers.

A description reads: “We are looking for someone with significant broadcasting experience who is confident at setting the day’s agenda in a way that is relevant and relatable to the BBC Breakfast audience.

“The normal working pattern will be based around three days a week (normally Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) with some flexibility to work other days on the programme if needed. “

“Working hours include prep time, pre-records, travel and location work (outside broadcasts) when needed.”
