Dan Harmon

Automotive Contributor

Dan Harmon was one of the original members of Lake Effect (formerly At Ten). He started at WUWM in November of 1998 and left December of 2015 after 17 years of production.

He continues on as one of Lake Effect's automotive contributors, which he's been since the early days of At Ten.

Dan's interest in cars goes way back, before he even had a drivers license. He usually finds something to like about any car and thinks we live in a very exciting time for automobiles.

"We're at a low in automotive aesthetic design, but the changes in technology make up for it," Dan says. "I love 'old' cars, but always look forward to what comes next.”

Dan interviews auto writer, Mark Savage, each month (among others), and can be seen haunting car dealerships and auto shows. He lives in Portland, OR, where old cars refuse to die.
