Daniel Woodruff reporter...

Daniel Woodruff is thrilled to join KSL as a reporter and fill-in anchor. In many ways, it’s a return to his roots as Daniel started his broadcast journalism career as an intern at KSL, learning from many of the reporters and anchors he grew up watching.

Born in Salt Lake City and raised in Provo, Daniel attended Provo High School and has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communications from Brigham Young University. He worked as a reporter at a FOX affiliate in Indiana, followed by several years as the primary weeknight anchor at an ABC affiliate in Wisconsin.

In 2014, Daniel and his family returned home to Utah where he spent nearly seven years as a reporter at KUTV, along with a stint working in public relations. In January 2024, he joined the KSL news team.

Daniel has covered many high-profile stories in his career including the Great Recession and its effects, the Wisconsin recall elections, the inauguration of President Donald Trump, the Westminster Bridge terror attack in London, the Dakota Access Pipeline Protests in North Dakota, the Brian Head fire, the Las Vegas mass shooting, and the Lori Vallow Daybell murder trial. He has also reported extensively on Utah politics and covered multiple legislative sessions.

When he’s not at work, Daniel enjoys running, reading non-fiction, trying new restaurants (especially Indian food), and traveling. He met his wife on a blind date. They have three children.
