Hitting the Road For Independence Day?

AAA is predicting a record breaking 841,000 Coloradans will travel over Independence Day. 

Nearly 49 million Americans are expected to travel over the 4th of July holiday period, the highest number ever recorded. The majority will travel by car. 

That means roads will be more crowded than usual, and motorists should expect drive times to be at least four times longer than usual. 

The surge is credited to lower gas prices and low unemployment rates.

Dan attended Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Arkansas from 1978-82 (where he picked up the name Dan R after his fraternity brothers couldn’t pronounce his last name), majoring in Radio/Television. Dan lived in Jonesboro for 10 years working in radio and then was a TV weatherman for ABC affiliate KAIT Channel 8.

Television was a little boring when compared to radio, so Dan returned to hosting radio morning shows in Nashville, Memphis, Oklahoma, and then eventually, Colorado.
