Dan Klein is a reporter at WSAZ.

Dan Klein reports each weekday at WSAZ.

Dan joined WSAZ in June 2016 as a reporter and anchor. He’s an Emmy-nominated and award-winning journalist. His journalism career has taken him around the country, but he’s thrilled to find a home in the Tri-State area.

Dan grew up in Indianapolis before heading to Syracuse University and graduating in May 2005 with a triple major in Broadcast Journalism, Political Science and History. He's reported for KSWO-TV in Lawton, Okla., WCJB-TV in Gainesville, Fla. and WTHI-TV in Terre Haute, Ind.

His last job at WLFI-TV in Lafayette, Ind., is very similar to his current gig, just better hours! For five years he was the 11 p.m. anchor, reporter and investigative reporter for the station. It's a place that will always be special to him because it's where he met his wife.

Dan loves to travel. He's been to all 50 states in the U.S., finally crossing Hawaii off the list about a year after getting married. He's also been to 20+ countries on five continents. He likes being outdoors, especially hiking with his wife. They both can't wait to find the best trails that the Tri-State has to offer.

Dan also enjoys playing and watching sports like basketball (of course, he is a Hoosier after all), football, baseball and tennis. But if the weather is bad, he enjoys curling up with a good book and a CD from his large collection.

Dan has won a number of awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Associated Press and the Indiana Broadcasters Association in categories like General News, Education, Criminal Justice and Investigative Reporting. He’s been nominated for four Emmy Awards, including for Reporter Excellence.

Dan is really excited to tell the stories that matter to the Tri-State area and would love to hear from you. Feel free to stop and say “hello” if you see him around, become a Facebook friend, Twitter follower or email him with a story idea.
