Daniel Daube ’84

Daniel Daube’s career began before his graduation from Gannon University as an active contributor to 90.5 WERG-FM, Gannon’s 3,000-watt radio station. Internships in town led to his first job at WSEE-TV, beginning in 1982, which led him to his true passion – television.

While at Gannon, Daube was a member of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, graduating in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication arts. He took on post-production and editing positions in Kansas and Kentucky before working in Atlanta at WATL-TV. He relocated to Los Angeles then New York and returned to Atlanta in the early 1990s. Daube helped launch Magick Lantern and Brick House Editorial, two production start-ups in Atlanta. Opportunities at UPN/Paramount and CBS Atlanta led to writing, directing, producing and, most of all, editing the work he produced. Daube earned Emmy Awards in 2001 and 2002 for both editing and producing.

Daube joined Turner Studios as an Editorial Manager in 2002. Over the next 12 years the editorial group doubled in size, as did the technical facilities. In 2005, Daube was promoted to Director of Post-Production. As technology and content creation continued to merge in the industry, Daube transitioned to a role with the Broadcast Engineering & Systems Technology team, where he currently manages the content sharing portfolio. With over 15 years of service at Turner, which is Time Warner’s largest division, Daube has been at the center of their tremendous growth, particularly in their capabilities for creating and sharing digital media.

Since 2011, Daube has co-led four trips to Skopje, Macedonia with GlobalX, the international arm of North Point Ministries. The Macedonia teams worked with the 25th of May Institution for Children, which is home to abandoned and orphaned children, including refugees and children with disabilities. The GlobalX teams have refurbished many parts of the orphanage including the gym and a large playground. In their largest effort in Macedonia, three greenhouses were rebuilt to support sustainable farming for the institution. In 2017, Daube received Gannon University’s College of Humanities, Education, and Social Sciences Distinguished Alumni Award.

Daube is father to his now-grown children, Ellerie and Alex. Ellerie is a marketer and part-time actress and Alex is a project manager in commercial landscaping. Daube is now happily engaged to Kathy Moore. They all reside in Atlanta.
