Dan Robertson is a native Texan and a University of Texas graduate with an impressive 20-year career of reporting and forecasting in the Lone Star State. Dan kicked off his career behind the camera on a production crew for an NBC Affiliate station. Not long after that, Dan got his first taste in front of the camera as a weather anchor for KTRE-TV in Lufkin, and hasn’t gone back since.
Today, Dan is apart of the Spectrum News team, bringing his unique spin to the weather forecasts each day.
Dan received the National Weather Association Seal of Approval in 1991 and has been trailblazing the industry ever since. To illustrate, Dan launched 'Project Tornado,' a Skywarn storm spotter training program coupled with a severe weather safety program in local schools. His efforts to promote weather safety in the region were recognized with Special Service Awards from the National Weather Service in 1992 and again in 1994.
When Dan’s not on camera, you can find this self-proclaimed bad joke specialist finding new ways to keep Texas entertained and interested in the latest weather updates.
