Dan is a WWII veteran that served in both the Pacific and European theaters. He went on to be a crop duster, then worked for Central Airlines in their sales department. In 1954, he went to work for KGNC as a weatherman for $1 per program. He became a Legend with his humor and brilliance. His forecasts dominated the ratings and his name was more recognizable than Elvis. He invented the "beep-beep-beep" to alert listeners to emergency weather information.
He lived on a ranch in the Palo Duro Canyon and later wrote two of his books on eagles from his experiences there. He is still considered a world expert on both eagles and hummingbirds. Check out his bird houses on the MENU.
