Daniel Hogan has been working in non-profit community radio for three years now as both a DJ and journalist. In July of 2017, himself and the general manager of KBMF created their first news hour made of entirely local content. Stories since then have covered a range of topics including historic preservation, parking garages, environmental cleanup, and oral histories. He hosts a weekly talk show called Superfund 101 where he has a twenty to thirty minute conversation with experts, activists, scientists and government officials about the remedy and restoration of land and people in this country's largest Superfund site. He also compiles a weekly wrap up of Butte-Silver Bow's council of commissioners regular meetings. All content for KBMF news is produced by citizen journalists, this creates a diverse and ever changing cast of characters, all of whom bring their own experience and questions.
