President, Fearless Faith Ministries; Former Senior QVC, Host
During the spring semester of 1974, Dan hosted his first radio show on his college campus station in Springfield, Missouri. That was his first taste of “live broadcasting.” Forty-four years later, Dan has logged more than eleven thousand hours of live television. That’s more than Jay Leno and David Letterman combined.
For twenty-nine years, Dan was one of the top hosts for QVC, the number one electronic retailer in the world. He has interviewed hundreds of superstars from the world of sports, entertainment, politics, and industry. His long list of interviews includes Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Cal Ripken, Jr., George Foreman, Magic Johnson, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Bob Hope, Charlton Heston, Smokey Robinson, Willie Nelson, Darryl Hall and John Oates, along with many others.
In 1999, Dan wrote a book titled Best Seat in the House, in which he chronicled many untold stories of sports legends such as Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and George Foreman.
In 2015, Dan’s wife of thirty-one years passed into eternity after a three-year battle with stage IV cancer. He saw many powerful examples of God’s love and grace during that time and recently released his second book, Hurricane of Love: My Journey with Beth Wheeler.
Dan retired from QVC at the end of 2017 after twenty-nine years to pursue full-time ministry. In 2016, he formed Fearless Faith Ministries with two college friends. They currently produce short, inspirational messages every day on their Facebook page, @FFM60.
Dan currently lives in Coatesville, Pennsylvania, with his dog, Zoey. He has two daughters and three very special, perfect grandchildren.
