[ FROM DAN ]
Hi. I'm Dan Bahl. First of all, thanks for stopping by.
Allow me to tell you a bit about myself. I am a communications and media professional based in New York's Capital District. I'm originally from Northern Connecticut, and moved to New York in April of 2021. More on that in a moment.
I loved the Nutmeg State so much that in 2016, I began my collegiate career at Quinnipiac University. Go Bobcats, if I may. My time at QU truly changed my life, both personally, and professionally.
While on-campus in Hamden, I established my first brand. The brand, From The Bleachers, began as a weekly radio show on the student-run station, WQAQ 98.1-FM. It grew exponentially during my four years at the university, during which time I added a blog/webpage, and a Twitter account, while recruiting students and friends from my life to join our brand as writers, podcast hosts and digital media specialists.
While at Quinnipiac, I also established the official podcast of the QU Athletic Department, which came to be known as The Roar. I worked my way into a position as a Color Analyst on ESPN+, and was named the sole analyst for Quinnipiac's Women's Hockey team during my senior year.
I was the only student in my class to work on these professional broadcasts, an accomplishment that I still cherish to this day.
The COVID-19 pandemic put a damper on my original post-graduation plans, but I didn't let it deter me from chasing my passion. In the winter of 2021, I was informed of an opening at Albany's Sports Talk Leader, 104.5 The Team. I signed on in April of 2021, and have been there ever since.
Though the brand has certainly grown under my guidance, I believe it's more fair to say that I've grown along with it. I've learned valuable lessons about brand rehabilitation, time management, team leadership and "360 content" creation.
I consider myself very fortunate that, at 24 years old, I've led the career that I've been able to lead. I'm always eager to learn, and go grow, so please, feel free to reach out to me, and let's talk sometime.
Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great time!
