  • Blog: Dan Miller's Notebook

Zachariah Daniel Miller III (September 30, 1941 – April 8, 2009), commonly known as Dan Miller, was an American television personality who grew up in Augusta, Georgia. Miller was a longtime news anchorman for WSMV (formerly WSM-TV) in Nashville, Tennessee. Beginning his tenure there as a weathercaster in 1969, he moved to the news anchor desk in 1970. In 1986, Miller left Nashville to serve as principal anchor at KCBS-TV in Los Angeles, a position he held for one year. Miller then gained fame in the United States nationally as the announcer and sidekick for his friend and one-time WSM-TV colleague, Pat Sajak, during Sajak's short-lived CBS late-night talk show, The Pat Sajak Show. Upon returning to Nashville in 1992, Dan began hosting his own cable talk show, Miller & Company, on The Nashville Network. An earlier version of Miller & Company had aired on WSMV from 1980 to his departure for L.A. in 1986. Miller returned to the WSMV anchor desk in 1995 and continued his work there until his death in 2009. Miller appeared in the CBS movie, Big Dreams and Broken Hearts: The Dottie West Story, which featured Michele Lee as Dottie West. He appeared as a guest on Hollywood Squares in 1989.
