Born and raised in Rhode Island, Dan headed south (or so he thought) for his college career and attended the University of Maryland, College Park. He received a bachelor’s degree in print journalism from the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism in 2009.
After graduating, Dan returned to New England to work as a sports reporter and copy editor at The Taunton Daily Gazette in southeastern Massachusetts. He returned to the D.C. area in 2011 to work as a copy editor and web editor at The Gazette, a weekly newspaper group owned by The Washington Post that serves the D.C. suburbs.
He joined CBS Radio in January 2013.
