Danilo Acquisto, 26, is a TV presenter on Afternoon Express and a radio presenter on Good Hope FM – with far too much energy and passion filling in the time between the two.
While studying at UCT, he hosted the afternoon drive show on UCT Radio. In September 2010 he entered a presenter search for a television show on SABC2, Hectic Nine-9. He went on to win the coveted role of lead presenter for the live television show, where he presented to an audience of over 3 million viewers daily. In addition to this, he also produced for the show on a regular basis.
In 2015, Danilo went on to become one of the three winners of the #PresenterSearchOn3, where he was named the new addition to the Afternoon Express team on SABC3, where he presents alongside Bonang Matheba, Jeannie D and Bonnie Mbuli.
In addition to the many media personality hats he wears, Danilo is also a social entrepreneur; an advocate of the power of hope in the youth and in digital media; an official ambassador for Iris House Children’s Hospital; and Chairman of the Youth Chaplaincy Committee for the Youth Office of the Western Arch Diocese. Danilo is also CEO of a brand new digital business with global partners as of 2017.
His confidence, outgoing nature, and authentic on air personality stand him in good stead when it comes to MC’ing an event and doing voice overs for advertising campaigns and corporate work.
