Eyewitness News reporter Dan Krauth
Dan Krauth is an award-winning investigative journalist who joined the Eyewitness News team in October 2019.

His reporting has exposed government waste and corruption, and has led to changes in state and local laws.

His reports prompted lawmakers to enact a state law in 2019 that protects patients and led to a change in the way surgeons nationwide perform a popular procedure.

Prior to joining Eyewitness News, Dan spent five years working at WTVJ in Miami as an investigative journalist.
