Bio

Hey all! My name is Dan Gross.

Dan Gross is a graduate of SUNY Oswego with Bachelor of Fine Arts, and double majored in Broadcasting and Music. Although Dan began his schooling looking to become a sports broadcaster, he decided to focus on music as his schooling continued. As a member of the school’s media outlets, Dan had experience in radio, and as a reporter for the school newspaper, reviewing and reporting on the school’s academic concerts with an educational twist.

Currently, Dan is involved with many music news and media outlets. As a writer, he freelanced for the Democrat and Chronicle when the need arises, and he writes online articles for the prestigious Eastman School of Music. He also hosts a radio show on Jazz90.1 WGMC-FM, hosts a podcast for Outside In Music, and helps out with all things digital content at Bop Shop Records.

As a digital and multimedia journalist, he freelances on many projects, but mainly hosts, produces, directs, edits, and records the Rochester Indie Musician Spotlight, a program that features local (and mostly young) independent musicians. Containing a ten minute interview with a live performance, RIMS combines “Off Camera with Sam Jones,” “NPR: Tiny Desk,” and “Austin City Limits” with the feel of “American Bandstand.” It’s a web series now, but it’s making the move to radio too, podcasts, and it’ll be on TV before you know it!
