Wayne Clarke is BBC Radio Merseyside’s religious affairs producer and in addition to producing and presenting Daybreak, Wayne compiles the breakfast programme’s Thought for the Day and reports on faith related news stories for the station.

Wayne, a Midlander by birth, has lived in his adopted home of Liverpool since 1994. Wayne’s other job is as minister of Dovedale Baptist Church in south Liverpool, which makes his Sunday mornings very busy.

Up at 4.30, starting at Radio Merseyside at the crack of dawn, he then rushes off to lead a church service when he’s finished on the radio.

The world of entertainment has attracted Wayne since childhood. He traces the appeal back to when he started singing in public at the age of six, since then as well as his radio career he’s appeared on University Challenge and other television quiz shows.

Wayne says the most interesting people he’s interviewed include a local man celebrating his 100th birthday, another man living with AIDS. and Fame Academy judges David and Carrie Grant

Tune in to Daybreak every Sunday morning from 6am-8.30am on BBC Radio Merseyside.
