Dan Langager

News Reporter - Producer

Talk about a home coming. Dan grew up right here in the Wenatchee valley and five

years after saying goodbye, he’s saying hello again. He may be new to the broadcasting world, but his years

of journalism experience provide a strong foundation for radio news.

Dan’s love of writing and telling

stories began at an early age when he wrote his first Star Wars fan fiction in second grade. After crafting a poem

that same year, he was chosen to read it on the air at a local radio station in Minot, North Dakota, where he

spent his early childhood years. Dan’s family relocated to Wenatchee when he was eight, but he never forgot

that first foray into the realm of broadcast.

His journalism career started as a teenager, writing for

Wenatchee High School’s Apple Leaf newspaper and serving as Editor-in-Chief for the WaWa yearbook. Dan spent

his first year at Western Washington University in Bellingham avoiding the idea of being a journalist, until he

wrote an article for the student newspaper, The Western Front.

At that point, Dan realized his passions do

indeed lie in the realm of quality news. After his tenure with the Front, he worked for other WWU student

publications. While on the Klipsun feature news magazine, he covered local musicians and marshal artists, and he

wrote about dairy cow genetics for the Planet, an environmental news magazine.

During some vacation time

after college graduation, Dan explored the Pacific Northwest’s luscious landscapes and bountiful breweries

from Missoula, Montana to Seattle, along with a week in the Hawaiian Islands. His travels landed him back home in

the Wenatchee valley, where a surprising opportunity greeted him – a chance to further pursue his

journalistic aspirations as a news reporter for KOHO radio.

Dan spends the majority of his free time in the

outdoors or with his nose in a book. You’ll find him regularly running or biking the Loop Trail, swimming in

the Columbia River and Lake Chelan, and traversing the endless trail systems of the Wenatchee foothills. He

devours anything sci-fi, fantasy, post-modern fiction, historical fiction and non-fiction, and graphic novels,

usually about the Caped Crusader. Dan enjoys being introduced to amazing new music daily on KOHO. The rest of his

time goes towards his beautiful sisters, his parents, and his family’s 15-year-old cocker spaniel

Isaac.

Dan is always looking for new ideas and tips to bring to KOHO. Feel free to send him any story ideas,

comments or critiques at the email below.
