Dan Mannarino is a five-time Emmy Award-winning anchor and reporter for the PIX11 Morning News.

Dan joined PIX11 News in September 2011 and is thrilled to be reporting in the No. 1 market, and the area he was born and raised in, New York City. Since joining the team, Dan has covered some of the area’s biggest stories, including Hurricane Sandy, the East Harlem explosion, the Philadelphia train derailment, and many more.

Dan traveled to Rome twice — once for the elevation of Timothy Dolan to Cardinal and again when Pope Francis was named. He was live when the white smoke began to rise.

Dan has won a number of broadcast media awards, including five regional Emmy Awards. Dan’s first win came for an exclusive investigative piece into a toxic spill in Le Roy, N.Y., that led to a massive cleanup by the Environmental Protection Agency.

He has since won awards for his exclusive Hidden New York Series, his coverage of Hurricane Sandy, and for his exclusive reporting on “fight church,” where MMA-style boxing took place inside a house of worship.

Before Dan joined PIX11 News, he worked at NY1 News and Verizon FiOs 1 News on Long Island and in New Jersey.

Since 2003, Dan has volunteered for Camp New Day in New Jersey working with developmentally delayed adults, a cause near and dear to his heart.

Dan also can’t forget his Italian roots and currently resides in Manhattan.
