Hi there! My name is Daniel and I joined the KFYR news team in August 2018 . I am super excited to make North Dakota my home.
I was born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Go Eagles!). I could’ve been born with a microphone in my hand because I’ve always love telling entertaining stories. My interest in television began at the very young age of 5 when I toured my first TV studio. Shortly thereafter, at age 6, I became the junior radio announcer for a weekly show called Festival of the Arts on WCTC in New Brunswick, New Jersey and I kept that job until 2008. In middle school, I was one of the founding members of our morning announcements, responsible for delivering the daily updates and weather reports.
Over the years I’ve had several acting appearances in blockbuster movies playing different characters. From an art student to a Russian VIP I never knew where the next gig would take me!
In high school I joined the theater program where I was in the musical productions of Alice in Wonderland and Legally Blonde. I also was the anchor/producer for H-Vision News as well.
I became more aligned with media after recording several commercials for Woodward Woods Radio on 1610 AM and WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.
After graduating I joined the KFYR team telling the stories of North Dakota, and I feel so lucky to be working for such a great station.
Since 2015, I have been a member of the Society of Professional Journalists. If you have any stories ideas or just want to say hello, you can reach me at Daniel.Burbank@kfyrtv.com or on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or Snapchat @tvmandan.
