About Dan

Radio has certainly taken Dan to places all over the country. After spending part of his life in the Canadian Armed Forces, Dan graduated from Confederation College’s Radio and Television program and took his first gig in the booming community of Dryden Ontario. From there it was to Thunder Bay for a stint at Dougall Media and then off to Owen Sound and Bayshore Broadcasting. When Rogers Media decided to launch three news-talk stations in Atlantic Canada, Dan jumped at the opportunity. First at an Anchor at News 91.9 in Moncton, then as the host of The Drive with Dan Ahlstrand and then The New Brunswick Morning News. Dan now anchors The Morning News on News 95.7 each weekday morning from 5:00am to 8:30am. When not working away in the newsroom you can find Dan casting a fly on a stream, throwing a rock at a local curling club, or taking in the beauty of Nova Scotia on the back of his motorcycle.
