2011 - Daniel Pierce joined the KETK news team in 2011. He was the KETK weekend producer for four years before taking the desk as its full-time anchor in 2016. Daniel is a native East Texan; he grew up in Longview (GOOOO LOBOS!). He moved to pursue his passion in radio, television, and film, as well as music, at The University of Texas at Tyler. Daniel anchored for the university's news program, "The Patriot Press." He was also a member of UT Tyler newspaper, where he interviewed guest speakers at the Cowan Center, most notably Robert M. Edsel, the author of the novel and movie "The Monuments Men." During this time, Daniel was honored to win an award for his photography work with the Talon.
News is just a small portion of Daniel's life. When he's not at KETK, he loves to go to the movies and enjoy a large drink and a small popcorn, traveling, playing music or studying up on his Star Wars trivia. If you see Daniel out and about, feel free to say "hello."
