On 15 April 2011 he left XFM to present the weekend breakfast show on Capital Radio (now known as Capital London).[9][10]

He began presenting 4-7pm on Absolute Radio from 2 October 2017 with his co-host Matt Dyson.[13] Berry also presented a 7-10pm show on Absolute Radio's sister station Absolute Radio 90s every Monday-Thursday. In March 2018, it was confirmed that Berry would replace Christian O'Connell as the host of the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show.[14] Berry began presenting the Absolute Radio Breakfast Show on 4 June 2018 where he was joined by Dyson and the show's newsreaders Glenn Moore and Emma Jones.
