Dan Potter

A “reformed” Texan, Dan Potter can’t stay away from Tulsa!

The host of the KRMG Morning News became our news director and morning anchor back in 2008. But, in 2010, family events forced his return to Texas. Still, he never really left Tulsa. He frequently returned to KRMG to fill-in as a substitute host on the KRMG Morning News and to assist during StormCenter events. In 2011, circumstances allowed him to return to Tulsa fulltime and, in November of 2012, Dan was named host of the KRMG Morning News.

For almost two decades, Dan was Texas’ most-listened-to radio news anchor. He is the recipient of dozens of honors from broadcast news organizations. The Texas Associated Press Broadcasters and the Press Club of Dallas have awarded him Best Newscast honors a total of 6 times. He was also elected to two consecutive terms as chairman of the Texas AP Broadcasters. In Oklahoma, Dan has been honored with multiple awards from the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, including two awards for Best Newscast. And, in 2013, the Tulsa Press Club awarded The KRMG Morning News top honors for Favorite NewsTalk Morning Show while Dan was recognized for the Favorite Radio NewsTalk Personality.

Dan earned the national Edward R. Murrow Awardfor best large-market radio newscast from the Radio-Television News Directors Association in 2000. He was also part of the reporting team which won broadcast journalism’s equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize, the DuPont-Columbia Silver Baton, in 2003-2004.

In his radio journalism career, Dan has witnessed history. He anchored continuous coverage of the 9-11 attacks, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and others, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Branch Davidian siege and the demise of the space shuttle Columbia over North Texas. He also reported live from the inauguration of President George W. Bush in 2001. He’s interviewed everyone from presidential candidates to Senators, from the First Lady to chefs and celebrities.

Away from the studio and kitchen, Dan is celebrity in the world of competitive marching bands and world class drum corps as a stadium announcer and media personality for Drum Corps International and Bands of America.
