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.

Kerik was able to cut 150 stabbings per month to just 6 or 7 per month by 1999.  It was something noticed by inmates and guards during that time. “There is […]

    Inside Rikers Island: ‘New York’s Boldest’ reveal their struggles inside the jail

    There are over 9,000 Correction Officers who work within the Department of Corrections system. They are described as “New York’s Boldest.” Over the weekend, City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito proposed the idea of reducing the jail population within Rikers Island, so the jail could eventually be shut down. However, the men and women on the front lines who face daily abuse and violence and often fear their lives, say that isn’t the answer just yet. A year into the Mayor’s 14-point […]

    Inside Rikers Island: A look at violence and corruption in the complex

    Rikers Island has been described by some as “the worst place on Earth.” Since it was established in 1932, it has become a place notorious for violence within the walls — where inmates attack inmates, inmates attack correction officers, and correction officers attack inmates. Currently, Rikers has the lowest prison population to date, with just over 10,000 inmates. Yet, violence continues to climb. In 2015, there were 9,424 assaults — the highest in five years. Stabbings, in particular, rose to […]
