Dan Kotnik

Originally from the Dayton area, I grew up with a huge family (the oldest of six). Parents and all my aunts and uncles grew up in either Tiffin or Bascom, so I was very familiar with the area before moving up here.

I'm a proud graduate of THE Bowling Green State University where I got my degree in Sport Management and minor in journalism. I developed my love for radio, particularly sports radio, while I was there. I got to do play-by-play for a wide variety of BGSU sports: football, basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball; even got to call a bowl game at Ford Field! I'll always be forever grateful for the experience and relationships I got while I was there.

As you can guess, I'm a sports junkie with my biggest fix coming from the 13-time world champion Green Bay Packers, of whom I'm a partial owner. My fandom also spreads to the Tigers, Celtics, Bruins and Buckeyes.

I'm excited to be here with an awesome company and ready to do big things here!
