Dan Katz



In January of 1994, Dan Katz became the co-anchor for 14 News Sunrise. Over the years, Dan has watched Sunrise grow from a one hour newscast to a two and half hour one. Before the creation of Sunrise, Dan was the weekend sports anchor and general assignment reporter for 14 WFIE. He graduated in 1981 from Southern Illinois University with a degree in Radio and Television. Dan is kept busy volunteering at his sons' school, and also works closely with the March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Newburgh Jr. Baseball and The Children's Center for Dance Education. He lives in Newburgh with his wife Beth, a former TV personality in the Tri-State. They are the proud parents of twin sons.  Noah goes to school at Indiana University in Bloomington, and Jonah is at Ball State University in Muncie. The best part of Dan's job is informing the Tri-State about what's going on everyday around the world. He never gets bored with his job because everyday is new, exciting and different. His favorite assignment while at 14 News was covering the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta.
