Dan Wing

wing_dan 2015 300x225 _fischerDan Wing is a news anchor and reporter for KYW Newsradio 1060.

Long familiar with the local scene, Dan joined the KYW staff as a part-time reporter and anchor in December 2010 after spending six years as the morning news anchor and sports director at WBCB Radio in Bucks County.

While at WBCB, Dan called the live play-by-play broadcasts of hundreds of high school sporting events on both sides of the Delaware River throughout Bucks and Mercer counties, anchored the morning newscasts, and also co-hosted or engineered a number of talk shows featuring the likes of Bill Clement, Merrill Reese, Greg “The Bull” Luzinski, and numerous current and former members of the Philadelphia Eagles and Flyers.

A lifelong resident of the Philadelphia area, Dan went to high school at Pennsbury High School in Fairless Hills, Pa., then attended Bucks County Community College before earning a degree in communications from Temple University.

You could call Dan a “four-for-four” guy since he’s a fan of all four of the city’s professional sports teams.  But, he says, Eagles football always comes first.

Feel free to tweet Dan(@dwingKYW), a self-described fantasy football expert, with any Fantasy Football questions during the season.
