As a kid, I probably watched too much television. But all that time in front of the tube did yield at least one benefit: It helped me figure out what to do for a living!

I've always considered myself lucky that I'm allowed to tell stories using pictures, sound, and whatever creativity I can muster. And I'm especially thankful that my career path has led me to North Texas and Fox 4.

If you get up early, you can see me reporting for the Good Day show, both hard news and features.   The variety of assignments I get definitely keeps the job interesting.   I also serve as anchor on Fox4 News at Noon, as well as Good Day Saturday.

I grew up in Southern California, in a town called Calabasas. I spent a lot of summer days at nearby Zuma Beach, not actually surfing, but hoping to give that impression.

I developed an interest in mass media early on, and figured UCLA would be the right place to go to college. It was a great experience, but upon graduating, I discovered my services weren't exactly in demand. To learn about broadcast journalism, I eventually took a job as a weekend cameraman at a station in Santa Maria, California. (That's about an hour north of Santa Barbara.) It was there I picked up the basics of electronic news gathering, eventually becoming a reporter and weekend anchor.

In 1992, I took a job in Fresno, in the heart of California's vast Central Valley, and stuck around there until landing my current job at Fox 4. I was instantly impressed by this station's commitment to news, and the caliber of the people who work here. And with north Texas growing so fast, and changing every day, this is a great place to be a journalist.

I'm looking forward to getting to know the people of this area, so if you see me on the street, by all means, say hello! E-mail me at dan.godwin@foxtv.com.
