Waitrose is delighted to welcome presenter, sports pundit and Strictly Come Dancing quarter-finalist Dan Walker as Waitrose Weekend’s newest sports columnist.
Dan will be sharing this role with Clare Balding and his first column will be published on Thursday 17 March. He joins a roster of well-known columnists and contributors at Waitrose Weekend including Chris Packham, Alvin Hall, Ritulah Shah and Mariella Frostrup.
‘I’m really excited about it’, says Dan in an interview in last week’s Waitrose Weekend. ‘I’ve covered every sport under the sun during my career – I’ve done Wimbledon, the Six Nations, World Cups, rowing, golf…I’m looking forward to bringing all of that to the Weekend audience.’
Dan’s love of sport began in childhood after spending Saturdays watching Crawley Town matches with his dad, and he’s been obsessed with all sports ever since.
