Dan Mannarino is a four-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 the Metro-North train derailment, East Harlem explosion, Philadelphia train derailment, and many more. Dan traveled to Rome twice — once for the elevation of Timothy Dolan to Cardinal and another when Pope Francis was named.

However, it was the “PIX11 Cares” initiative that Dan is most proud of, bringing attention and aide to areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

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

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