Recently Fox 21 News news anchor Nick Lafave left his position for a new one in Shreveport, Louisiana and it didn't take long for an official replacement to be named, yesterday Dan Hanger announced on his Facebook page:

 

It's official! Because of all of YOU and your TRUST, I will be moving to the position as anchor at Fox 21 News. I have grown so much over the past five years here, and you have all been so patient to grow with me. Together, we will be using this new position to make a difference in this community! See you Monday!

Hanger was a reporter at Fox 21 before this promotion to anchor, he grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and studied journalism at Columbia College in Chicago.  Before working at Fox 21 Dan was a reporter and anchor at KDLH and KBJR and also worked here at Mix 108 for a while, so we are all happy for him and wish him the best.
