Dan Wolfe started at KBJR 6 in June, 2016, but he is no stranger to Minnesota. He spent the previous 5 years as morning anchor/producer at KTTC in Rochester after graduating from University of Nebraska-Omaha and starting his career as a reporter/producer at KETV in Omaha.
Since the beginning, Dan has had a passion for covering spot/breaking news. He reported extensively on the massive 2011 Missouri River flood that devastated the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. Dan was also one of the first reporters on the scene in Mapleton, Iowa, after the town was hit by a large tornado. More recently, he's covered a President Obama visit to southern Minnesota and the surprise snowstorm that hit the Rochester area in May of 2013. Dan was part of a morning crew that won three Emmy Awards in three years in Rochester.
Dan and his wife Carissa live in the Cotton area, and are thrilled to call the Northland home. They both love the outdoors, including fishing, hiking, canoeing and paddle boarding.
In May, 2017, Dan and Carissa celebrated the birth of their little girl Lyla. So far, Lyla loves laying around and spending time with her Australian Shepherd puppy brother, Louie.
"My wife and I are living in the exact place we've always wanted to be. We're beyond excited to call the Northland home," said Dan.
