Early life and education

Broadcasting career

Stayt started his career on a commercial radio station in his home town of Gloucester. Before moving into television, he worked on radio in London, hosting Capital Radio's award-winning news programme, The Way It Is and also reporting for LBC and BBC Radio 5 Live.

Stayt began his TV career working for ITN in 1995, then joined Five News as a reporter before presenting the network's prime-time bulletins and half-hour live debate programmes. He anchored Five News' coverage of the events of 11 September 2001 and spent a total of ten years at ITN, both as a correspondent and a presenter. He has also been a presenter for Sky News. He has presented numerous current affairs programmes and also hosted live "reality TV" shows Jailbreak, and Are You Telepathic.

Stayt joined BBC Breakfast in 2006, initially as a relief presenter, but in December 2007, he was confirmed as its Friday-Sunday presenter. Since January 2008, he has been the weekend presenter for BBC Breakfast, the early morning news programme broadcast on BBC One and BBC News. He moved with the programme to Salford and presents the programme Thursday-Saturday with Naga Munchetty, as well as standing in for main weekday host Dan Walker.
