From the moment he could answer the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Dan Hasty knew he was meant to share the game of baseball as a Radio Play-By-Play Broadcaster. In 2015, he was able to realize that lifelong dream in becoming Radio Voice of the West Michigan Whitecaps, Midwest League Affiliate for the Detroit Tigers.
Dubbed by some, "The Giant Ginger," Hasty spent nearly five years working for WXYT-FM in Detroit, MI. During that time, Hasty served as the pregame, halftime and postgame show host for the Detroit Lions Radio Network. An avid baseball fan, he assisted with reporting on his favorite childhood team, the Detroit Tigers, as well as the Red Wings and Pistons. His other responsibilities included contributions as an on-air host, and Producer for the 'Jamie & Stoney' Morning Show.
Hasty, who grew up in Metro Detroit returned home after living in North Carolina for three years doing Minor-League Baseball play-by-play and hosting the pregame, halftime and postgame shows for Wake Forest University football and basketball with the IMG College Radio Network. Prior to his time in North Carolina, Hasty spent almost three years as a broadcaster with the Great Lakes Loons, a Minor-League Baseball affiliate for the Los Angeles Dodgers. During this time, Hasty attended Central Michigan University, where he earned his Bachelors Degree in Broadcasting.
Equipped with a working knowledge of every episode of the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, he also loves Fantasy Football & Baseball. Hasty has also been a guest contributor to CBS Sports Radio and the CBS Sports Television Network. Hasty lives and breathes everything that is the Michigan Sports Scene, and aspires to give each of his broadcasts that same passion and energy.
Dan married his wife Angelina in October of 2015. While having kids may be down the road, the two of them are more than occupied by their two dogs. Mask, a 9-year old Siberian Husky, and Tessie, a one-year-old Golden Retriever added to the family in late 2016.
