This week we have with us a famous face from Fox 21 who recently landed in front of a national audience on NBC. Dan Hanger was involved with a moment of awkward banter during a newscast that caught the attention of Jimmy Fallon. The talk-show host played the clip on “The Tonight Show.”


We talk about that moment, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg in an episode full of insight into the television news business, Hanger’s personal life and how he balances his two worlds.


Make sure you listen to the end because the “What we are into” segment goes off the rails. We’re talking a total derailment and it’s great.
