Danny Clayton

WTMJ and Annex Wealth

A Milwaukee native, Danny has worked in radio –in some form—since the day after his sophomore year of high school ended when he was growing up in Escanaba, Michigan, and was hired by a station “who had no problem hiring bad 15-year-old DJ’s”.

Since then, he worked in Stevens Point and Madison before moving to Milwaukee and spending a total of 17 years at the original WKTI radio where he was program director and on-air personality.  From there, he worked at 105.3 The Fish, in Milwaukee, as well at 94.5 The Lake.   Along the way, he joined WTMJ for Saturday mornings where he hosts the Fix-It Show, Money Talk with Annex Wealth Management and The Fox World Travel Show with Rose Gray.

He and his wife, Suzanne, live in Fox Point where they spoil three Golden Retrievers. He enjoys fitness, hiking, and bicycling.

His father, Ole, was 100% Norwegian and his family can trace their family tree back nearly 300 years to the Osteroy area near Bergen.  He is beyond excited to be part of this very special trip.
