Dan Preston In The Morning

6am - 11am

Born into a military family on Christmas Day, Dan has lived all over the United States and usually answers the question “Where did you grow up?” with “That is a trick question, my friend!”  The answer includes 7 different states, but he calls a farm near Tucker’s Swamp home. Dan joined the United States Coast Guard while still at Southampton High School and traveled some more.  

Dan has been called funny and charming, patriotic and sentimental, a workaholic and a coffee addict (he pleads guilty to all of them). He will not admit to being an adrenaline junkie, but he has hiked around active volcanoes, been parasailing, piloted a small boat through a hurricane, traveled by hot air balloon and other interesting things. Dan enjoys having a good time and enjoying life to the fullest.  

Dan is the Program Director and morning show host on Real Country 101.7.
