Dan O'Donnell


The newest addition to News/Talk 1130 WISN and its youngest on-air personality, Dan O'Donnell nonetheless has more than a decade of experience as a radio news anchor, reporter, and news and sports talk show host.

He is a two-time winner of broadcast journalism’s prestigious national Edward R. Murrow Award and has won nearly 20 regional Murrow Awards and Wisconsin Broadcasters’ Awards for excellence. Dan has worked as a Wisconsin correspondent for FOX News Radio, CBS News Radio, ABC News Radio, FOX News Radio, In Session TV, and HLN’s “The Nancy Grace Show.”

A lifelong Wisconsinite who grew up just four miles from WISN’s studio, Dan is a graduate of both Marquette University and The University of Wisconsin Law School. He is a licensed (but thankfully non-practicing) attorney, so please try not to hold that against him.

Dan now lives in Milwaukee with his wife Megan and their three children.
