Dan Gross is currently a Digital Content Reporter at News 8. He was hired in July of 2018 as a news photographer, and following a surprise stint producing, he was promoted!
Dan can often be found wearing a number of different hats, from digital and TV reporter, to producing, even to spearheading election coverage. Dan enjoys shooting and editing his own stories, which range from touching features, sights and sounds, weird news, and stories showcasing great musicians in the Rochester area.
As of 2021, Dan helped launch News 8’s digital show platform, including hosting and producing What’s Good (weekly good news) and Songs From Studio B (local and touring musicians in a four song live set), to editing Rochester Rundown (weekly headlines).
Dan cut his teeth by hosting, producing, directing, editing, and recording the Rochester Indie Musician Spotlight, a program that features local (and mostly young) independent musicians. He’s also been volunteering at a local community jazz radio station, Jazz90.1 — on which he hosts two regular programs — since 2015.
His hobbies include recording and capturing live local music, video games, writing, reading, and spending time with his family.
