Dan DeRoos

For Dan DeRoos, the Midwest is home. Dan grew up in Iowa and earned his degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from The University of Iowa. After a five-year stint as a reporter/bureau chief in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Dan made his way out west. Working for CBS in Portland, Oregon allowed Dan to discover what is, possibly, the best-kept secret in the country: the Pacific Northwest. A change of scenery allowed Dan a chance to experience life outside of his roots. However, the opportunity in Cleveland gave Dan a chance to get closer to home and back to the people of the Midwest. Dan is a general assignment reporter, fill-in anchor and "Chairman of the BigBoard." The BigBoard is our visually driven piece of news technology. Using the web connected to a plasma touch screen, Dan brings the latest stories from the Internet into our newscasts.
