Where it all started: I was born and raised in Dunkirk NY. That's where I started working in radio in high school.
To be honest, I actually had a radio station in my attic at home, but it consisted of a record player, an old reel to reel tape machine and a plastic microphone I found in our basement. So I guess that doesn't count. I worked at WDOE in Dunkirk, and WBUZ in Fredonia (before the FCC yanked their license). I am a SUNY Alfred grad, and a SUNY Fredonia grad. I was also fortunate enough to work at WPHD-FM in Buffalo. I worked in beautiful Punta Gorda, Florida for a year before returning back home to work in Jamestown. I've done just about every shift in this town, broadcast PBP sports, and hosted a news/talk show. Now that I think about it, I've done the morning show on SE-93, WKSN, WHUG, and 103.1 The Fox. Wow! This guy just can't hold a job!
Where I am now: I love waking everyone up with the "My County Morning Show" on WJTN's sister station 101.9 FM, WHUG. And it's great to be broadcasting each weekday afternoon on WJTN!
My other job: I have my own business, Dan Warren's Entertainment Express. I provide music for parties, weddings, school dances and such. I also have a complete karaoke set-up which I take out quite frequently. Maybe I'll see you out and about some time, or if you're in need of a disc jockey for an event, give me a holler!
Why I'm still in this area: People ask this a lot. It comes down to this...for all that's wrong with this area, it's still a great place to raise a family! The quality of life is great, the people are wonderful, and I've been treated well in the many years I've been here. If I have to work a bunch of jobs to support my family (and my nasty eating habit!) so be it. To me it's worth it.
