Charles Stayt (born 1962) is an English journalist and presenter, currently employed by the BBC. His notable credits include presenting BBC Breakfast.

Early life

Stayt says he was a "late starter as a journalist", but that his years spent working as a roofer, a roadie and a barman were not entirely wasted. After graduating from Birmingham Polytechnic, Stayt started his career in commercial radio in his home town of Gloucestermarker. Before moving into television he worked in radio, hosting Capital Radio's award winning news programme The Way It Is, and also reported for LBC and BBC Radio 5 Live.


From January 2008 he has been the weekend presenter for BBC Breakfast, the early morning news programme broadcast on BBC One and BBC News. He also continues to occasionally present relief shifts on BBC News.

Stayt began his career working for ITN in 1995, as a reporter for Five News, and could be seen presenting the network's prime-time bulletins and half hour live debate programmes. During his career he has anchored Five News's 9/11 coverage, and spent a total of ten years at ITN, both as a correspondent and a presenter. He was also a presenter for Sky News. He's presented numerous current affairs programmes, and also hosted live 'reality' TV shows 'Jailbreak', and 'Are You Telepathic'.

Stayt joined BBC Breakfast in 2006, as a Relief Presenter on Mondays-Thursdays, to act as cover for Dermot Murnaghan and occasionally covering for Bill Turnbull on Fridays-Sundays. In December 2007, Stayt replaced Turnbull as Weekend Presenter, after Turnbull moved from weekends to present Breakfast from Mondays-Thursdays, following the departure of Murnaghan from the BBC. Since then, Stayt has presented Breakfast from Fridays-Sundays, alongside Susanna Reid.

Personal life

Stayt and his wife live in West London, and have a son (born August 2000) and daughter (born May 1997). He married Anne Breckell in December 1995 in Gloucester.
