Grant Denyer's Biography

Dynamic presenter, host and racing car driver Grant Denyer fast became one of Australia's most recognisable faces.
He is the host of the Seven Network's successful UK format, "Australia's Got Talent", with an average audience of 1.523 audience each week, "Australia's Got Talent" was the no. 1 entertainment program of 2008, and will return for a third season in 2009.
Grant first came to our screens as a fresh faced 22 year old News Reporter for Network Ten in 1999. Realising his talents quickly, the Network gave him the opportunity to work on the station's V8 Supercar coverage as a pit reporter, a dream come true for a budding V8 Supercar driver.
Grant Denyer moved across to the Seven Network in 2003 and has never looked back. Australian audiences really got to know Grant as Sunrise's Weather Man, taking the "Sunrise Weather Wagon" around the country for more than 2 years, going from town to town, spending most of his time on the road and away from home.
He gave up the "Sunrise Weather Wagon" in 2006, but stayed on with his "Sunrise" family to do Special Reports. In the same year Grant embraced the challenge of taking part in Seven's "Dancing with the Stars" and strutted his staff to a dazzling victory, taking out boxing champ Kostya Tszyu. He then went on to host "It Takes Two" and "Australia's Got Talent" for the Network.
With many hours of live TV experience, 2007 saw Grant in a new role with "Sunrise" with "Dare Denyer". Viewers were able to set his challenges every week, which has seen him jump off the tallest building in New Zealand, to wearing a "Mankini" down at Bathurst on live national TV. Whatever the challenge, Grant never backed down.
But he's not just a presenter or host. Living out every male fantasy, Grant Denyer always dreamt of being a Race Car Driver. He started driving cars at the age of seven around the family farm in the Riverina area in NSW. Due to legal issues of racing cars under the age of ten, he settled for racing go-karts, he then progressed into Utes, and now real cars, driving a FORD V8 in the V8 Supercar Fujitsu series. He also races Mini Coopers, as part of Australia's Mini Championships.
2008 saw Grant leading the field in the Mini Championships and he had his first win in his V8 Supercar at Sandown races in June 2008. Now having the taste for Victory, Grant held his position in the Mini Championships and went on to win another race at QLD Raceway in his V8 Supercar in July of 2008.
It's been the best year of his racing career, but also the worst. In September 2008, Grant shattered his L1 vertebrae in a Monster Tuck accident. Everything about the jump was text book, except the landing. His back absorbed more of the impact than the truck's suspension and left him in intensive care for more than two weeks.
Grant's racing, presenting and hosting career was put on hold whilst he continued his recovery period. HIs return to television was for Seven's "Carols in the Domain" on December 20, 2008. Since then he has also returned as host of Seven's "Australia's Got Talent" and "Destroyed in Seconds" for the Seven Network.
Grant Denyer is also an experienced MC and keynote speaker and would be delighted to be part of your next event.
