Majka, a native of Philadelphia, graduated from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting in Cherry Hill, NJ in 1997 with an eye towards sports.
After some brief volunteer work for a small cable TV system in South Jersey and a job as a producer and co-host for a talk show on a small radio station in South Jersey, he began his career at KYW Newsradio as a part-time desk assistant in the fall of 2000.
In 2003 he was promoted to a full-time production assistant and in 2005 became a full-time service aide.
He recalls one of the busiest days he’s ever worked: the day of the Phillies’ championship parade on Halloween Day, 2008. He enjoyed every minute of it.
Dan’s strong passion for sports and sportswriting paid off in October 2010 when he began writing and updating sports and news content on CBSPhilly.com.
His writing includes stories about all four of Philadelphia’s major sports teams.
Dan currently resides in Philadelphia with his wife, Beth. They are proud parents of two children -– Andrew, born in July 2007, and Kayla, born in May 2011.
Three men have been arrested after police found drugs and several weapons in and around a home in Camden, New Jersey.
Sources tell Eyewitness News that Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doug Collins has informed the team that he will not return next season.
A win in Boston in Game 5 on Monday night would put the Philadelphia 76ers in the driver’s seat in their Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Celtics.
Philadelphia was unable to generate anything offensively against Padres’ starter Anthony Bass, and the sloppy play in the field didn’t help as the Phillies lost to the Padres 6-1 on Sunday in the series finale.
Starting on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh, the Flyers and Penguins will renew their cross-state rivalry and begin what will be the sixth meeting all-time between the two teams in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Few rivalries in all of sports can rival the one between the Flyers and Penguins. That was evident again on Sunday in Philadelphia’s 6-4 win over Pittsburgh.
The Owls were selected as the #5 seed in the Midwest Region, but the Dragons were not among the 68 teams chosen to compete in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
The Flyers are fully aware of the challenge in front of them when they visit the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.
The Flyers lost to the Red Wings 4-3 on Sunday night. For Detroit, it was a historical 20th consecutive win on home ice, equaling the NHL mark first set by the Boston Bruins during the 1929-30 season, and then matched by the Flyers in 1976.
As they’ve done so many times this season, Flyers’ teammates Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell, skating on the same line, did exactly what helped them become All-Stars. The pair combined to score a goal.
Last season, the 76ers began the Doug Collins era with a dismal 3-13 mark and were at the bottom of the Atlantic division. This year, through the first 16 games, Philadelphia is 11-5 and in first place.
