Dan Hanger


Dan anchors FOX 21 News at 5:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Dan joined FOX 21 in October 2010 and has more than a decade of experience in television, radio and online journalism.

Before FOX 21, Dan worked at GAP West Broadcasting for a cluster of radio stations in Duluth, anchored and reported at KBJR-TV in Duluth and spent two years as a Web editor with Internet Broadcasting – publishing news for NBC’s owned-&-operated Web sites.

Dan is a 2005 graduate of Columbia College Chicago, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in broadcast journalism. His hometown is Chicago, but Dan calls the Northland home.
