I'm Dan Huff

About Me


I have spent more than 30 years in television news, developing an award-winning career that, to date, has involved assignments that have taken me across the globe, as well as sit-down interviews with three United States presidents and other world leaders. I covered the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks live from Ground Zero, arriving from Washington hours after the collapse of the Twin Towers. I filed stories from the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Katrina, traveled to Afghanistan, have been stranded on assignment in the jungles of Honduras and have covered numerous mass disasters, presidential campaigns, major sporting events and other national and international stories. Currently, I am detailed to the White House press corps.

I have thrived in challenging assignments, bringing poise and discipline while reporting under extreme conditions and often with little support. My career has forced me to work independently at times, making quick decisions from the scene on how to deliver, edit and produce the best possible video package.  I have also worked closely, and in a supervisory capacity, with many other print and video journalists, counseling and coaching those who are beginning their careers .
