Dan Romano

Meteorologist

Dan Romano’s first grade teacher asked him why he loved his parents so much. Dan answered her honestly. “They let me watch the weather channel instead of cartoons,” he told her.

The rest, as they say, is weather history.

“Although growing up afraid of the lightning, I was still fascinated with every type of weather phenomena and wanted to know as much as I could about it,” said Dan. His dream of becoming a weathercaster became a reality when he started working for WDIO/WIRT in January 2013.

Dan was raised “out east” in Blackwood, NJ-- a small town across the river from Philadelphia, PA. He eventually migrated west and attended Northland College in Ashland where he graduated cum laude in May of 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in both meteorology and mathematical science. He is currently enrolled in the Distance Learning Program through Mississippi State University striving for a Masters in Applied Meteorology.

Growing up on the east coast, Dan has witnessed nor’easters, tropical systems, and severe weather, along with heat waves and cold snaps. But, since moving to the Northland, Dan has not only experienced temperatures colder than he could imagine, but he also seized an opportunity to go tornado chasing in spring 2012.

Dan spent summers on the shore of the Atlantic instead of the shore of Lake Superior. He spent countless nights on the baseball field, but he was never too far away from the dinner table with the family. At Northland College, he played baseball for two years and currently hosts a sports-talk show on the campus radio station.

In his spare time, Dan enjoys golfing, cooking for friends, playing men’s baseball, coaching youth baseball, and sightseeing. An avid Philly sports fan—he has not yet been converted by Vikings or Packer followers!
