Dan Cassuto is the owner of Sound Originals and lead videographer and photographer. Dan honed his storytelling and production skills during his 10+ years as a television news reporter and anchor for NBC, ABC, and CBS local stations, including KING-TV in Seattle and KATU-TV in Portland. He developed a reputation for outside-the-box thinking and creative writing, earning some of the industry’s most prestigious national and regional awards.
Dan’s work was honored with 5 Emmy Awards and an Alfred I. duPont Award from Columbia University. The duPont is widely regarded as the television counterpart to the Pulitzer Prize, which is also awarded by Columbia. Dan is believed to be the youngest journalist in history to receive the duPont, at age 26, at a ceremony in New York alongside CBS’ “60 Minutes,” ABC’s “20/20” and PBS’ “Frontline”.
Dan spent the last several years reporting for KING-TV, the NBC affiliate in Seattle. KING’TV’s parent company, Tegna Inc., selected Dan based on his innovative spirit and entrepreneurial skills to develop, produce and co-host two pilot television shows working with a national team of producers and filmmakers. Dan left KING in the summer of 2017 to launch Sound Originals.
In addition to excellent writing, production and interviewing skills, Dan is an avid photographer and videographer with an eye for beautiful images. He’s also a proud “dog parent” to Duke, a 4-year-old Labrador!
Dan graduated from Duke University, where he studied public policy and economics.
