Dan Mannarino is a five-time Emmy Award-winning anchor for the PIX11 Morning News, weekdays from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Dan joined PIX11 in 2011 as a reporter and has covered some of the biggest stories, including Hurricane Sandy, the East Harlem explosion, the Philadelphia train derailment, the Chelsea terror bombings and many more.
Dan has also traveled abroad to cover international headlines, including traveling to Rome for the election of Pope Francis and to Paris and England to cover terror attacks.
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.
In the past two years, Dan has provided in-depth reporting from inside one of the country’s largest jail systems, Rikers Island. With over a dozen exclusive reports, Dan uncovered corruption and violence that helped shift the tide to shutting the island down in the next ten year.
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. In 2017, Dan became a co-founder of a non-profit charity called Circle Up Foundation, whose mission is to bring joy and dignity to the special needs community nationwide.
Dan was born and raised in the tri-state area and is a proud graduate of Manhattan College in the Bronx.
