Dan Bazile is best known as a Spectrum News 1 anchor, host, and reporter. Dan joined the Spectrum News Capital Region team in April of 2018 to anchor the early morning hour and co-anchor their live morning program. Prior to this, Dan spent a decade-long stint at an NBC affiliate station mastering the upstate New York news beat. Today, Dan is inspired to come to work to look for the truth and to help viewers better understand the community in which they live.

Throughout Dan's notable career, he has written about a wide range of topics from town board meetings to the State of the Union address. He's created a television segment called "You Paid for It", where he often interviews politicians about wasteful government spending. More so, Dan covered major stories, including the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in Washington, D.C. and New York City, and he'll never forget just how important his role as a reporter was during this time — providing accurate information to viewers that connected so deeply to an event as it happened.

Dan is an expert storyteller in more ways than one. Aside from reporting, he has also written and published two books, with his third currently in progress. He has also been known to double as an actor — check out "The Adjustment Bureau" with Matt Damon, and you just might see him!
