Dan McCarthy joined the CBS 13 News Team in September of 2016. He is a night side multimedia journalist during the week, and anchor for the Saturday newscasts.
Dan spent 2 years near the “other” Portland, working as an evening anchor for KTVZ in Bend, Oregon. During his times at the desk and in the field, he covered stories like the tragic shooting at Umpqua Community College and the militia occupation at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge. He’s excited to compare the breweries of Central Oregon to those of Vacationland!
Born and raised in New Milford, CT, Dan traveled to Boston for a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Suffolk University. Dan interned at WHDH and NECN in Boston, and was fortunate enough to have similar opportunities in Las Vegas and South Korea.
Dan is thrilled to be a few hours from home and back in New England. If the TV’s not tuned to WGME, he’s watching the Bruins, Sox, Patriots and Celtics! He’s looking forward to seeing Maine on foot, by bike and by boat, and make new friends along the way!
