Hamilton news and Dan McLean were synonymous for almost four decades. He joined CHCH-TV as an announcer in 1971 after earlier stints in radio in Welland, Saskatoon, and Kitchener. In 1980 he was named anchor of the 6 and 11 o’clock newscasts and he continued to keep Hamilton informed until he left the station in 2008. But he brought more than the headlines to the city. He was the original anchor of the McMaster’s Children’s Telethon, chaired the United Way Campaign for Hamilton-Burlington, sat on the Cancer Care Foundation Board of Directors, and was a member of the Board of Atrium Villa. His professional and community work have earned him numerous distinctions, including, Hamilton’s Distinguished Citizen of the Year, The Ontario Association of Broadcaster’s Broadcaster on the Year Award, and the International Red Cross Humanitarian Award.
