TROY — WMHT Public Media welcomes reporter Dan Clark as host of New York NOW, WMHT’s award-winning, statewide public affairs program.
A frequent guest on the program, Clark began his role as host of the long-running program Jan. 10.
Clark has been reporting on New York state government and politics for the last six years, when he worked out of the state Capitol in Albany. Clark reported for the national political fact-checking publication PolitiFact, the Buffalo News, the statewide political television show Capital Tonight, and most recently the New York Law Journal.
At the New York Law Journal, Clark has focused on state legal challenges to President Donald Trump, as well as litigation concerning laws enacted by the New York State Legislature. Clark covered the Legislature in each role he’s held and is a familiar face to state lawmakers and staff.
“Dan brings a wealth of expertise to New York NOW,” said Joseph Tovares, WMHT’s vice oresident, chief content and engagement officer. “His leadership will allow us to advance civic participation by providing critical information across multiple platforms to the citizens of New York about their state government.”
“I’m thrilled to host a show that’s recognized by many as a beacon for coverage on state politics and government in New York,” Clark said. “I’m from New York, I know New York, and I’m excited to share my love for the state with viewers from Brooklyn to Buffalo.”
Clark is a native of Afton in Chenango County. He has lived in Albany with his husband for nine years.
