Dan Thorn


Dan the anchor of Nexstar’s West Virginia Flagship newscast “West Virginia Tonight” in June 2015

Before joining taking on that role, Dan was the evening anchor for WVNS in Beckley, WV. It was there that he covered almost every shift and even co-hosted the Friday night high school football show, The SportsZone.

Although a New York native, Dan’s excited to be in the capital region telling stories that matter to you.

Dan holds a bachelor’s degree from Brooklyn College in New York City. While in school he interned at WABC, WCBS and NY1 News. After college he spent a few months “running scripts” as a desk assistant at channel 2.

When Dan’s not digging for a story he’s rooting for his beloved sports teams the Yankees, Rangers, Jets and Nets. Of course, he’ll root for the ‘Eers!
