Daniel WanschuraProgram Director for IPR News
Ever since he was young, Dan has been fascinated with radio. From hearing the dulcet tones of John Gordon broadcast Minnesota Twins games, to staying up late listening to radio theater, he was captivated by the imaginative medium.
In 2012, Dan graduated from Thomas Edison State University. In 2015, he moved from the Twin Cities to northern Michigan to work at Interlochen Public Radio.
Dan has received numerous awards for his reporting including three Edward R. Murrow regional awards and one national PRNDI award. His work has also been heard on NPR, Minnesota Public Radio, Michigan Radio, and KFAI Radio.
Dan enjoys playing volleyball with his wife Erin, driving on Michigan’s renown M-22 highway, and volunteering as a leader in Grand Traverse Young Life. He is also a lover of the Oxford comma — much to the chagrin of his editors.
