Dan Schutte started at CBS19 in June of 2006. He anchors the 6, 10, and 11pm newscasts. He met his wife Alison here, and they now have a little girl named Abby. Abby keeps the family on their toes. She loves swimming and the family dog Ripley. Ripley joined the family from the CASPCA in 2015.

Dan graduated from Leadership Charlottesville in 2012. He's involved in several events and activities throughout the area. He's run over a dozen marathons, and completed two half-ironman triathlons. He's also been involved with the water ski pyramid at Lake Monticello on the 4th of July the last several years(he's on the bottom).

In Dan's off time, he can usually be found on some of the area's lakes, or hiking through the mountains of Nelson County. He is also an avid reader, and is probably better than you at Cribbage.

Dan comes to the area from Northern Minnesota, where he was an anchor for WDIO-TV in Duluth. Prior to that, he was a reporter and anchor in Eureka, California. During his career, he has covered several national stories and won awards for his work.

Dan is originally from the Minneapolis area. He graduated from American University in Washington, D.C. with a degree in broadcast journalism. He was also a member of the Division I wrestling team there.

If you see him out and about, which you probably will, make sure you say hello.
