Z. Daniel Barnett joined the AVC News team in 2011, since which time he has strived to bring timely, impartial coverage to AVC's six stations each and every weekday morning.
Daniel delivered news of the infamous Zanesville exotic animal escape in October 2011 to listeners at home and "across the Pond" as a featured reporter on BBC's PM with Eddie Mair; covered the arrest and trials of "The Craigslist Killers," Brogan Rafferty and Richard Beasley; braved the elements to broadcast up-to-the-minute information during the severe summer storms of 2012; and followed the court proceedings of six suspects connected to the Coventry Estates double homicide of June 2012.
While at AVC, Daniel has also served as host/producer for Ohio Oil & Gas Today on Cambridge Community TV 2 and as moderator of the annual Meet the Candidates broadcast.
On a day-to-day basis, Daniel's reporting focus is on local crime, civic government, oil and gas news, and state politics.
When not in the newsroom, Daniel is an active member of Guernsey Lodge No. 66 F&AM and Cambridge Valley AASR.
