Alumnus Daniel Weir Leaps Into Froggy 92.9 Success

Tuesday, October 27, 2015
OAK LEAF NEWS (SANTA ROSA JUNIOR COLLEGE) -- Today, although no one might know who Daniel Weir is, the name Radio Dano might ring a bell among local country music listeners. Dano hosts the weekday afternoon show from 3 to 7pm on Sonoma County’s radio station Froggy 92.9. He returned to Santa Rosa Junior College in fall 2003, taking general education classes until he found an interest in a radio class before the department canceled it. He then transferred to San Francisco State University as a Radio and Television major, with an interest in audio production. One night he was in his room listening to Loveline on the radio with Adam Carolla when a lightbulb went off in his head. “I think I want to do that [host a radio]. I do that all the time with my friends, joking around,” Dano said.
