In an article published in June 2008, The Big Lead revealed that the newswriter no longer writes for the mainstream and is omitted out of the list of the highest paid ESPN journalists.
However, Dan is an inspiration to many people who seek a career in journalism.
Born in Jersey City, New Jersey to Cuba exiled parents, Dan started his career in journalism with his hometown newspaper Miami Herald in 1990. His first primary job at Herald was to investigate his former college's soccer team.

In addition to Herald, Dan started hosting a morning show with Stugotz on ESPN radio where he was appreciated for his self-deprecating humor. In an interview with Aventura Business Monthly based in Miami in March 2011, he revealed that Tony Kornheiser inspired him for the radio career. He said,
It will link [you] to [your] community in a different way [from that of newspapers]. That it will be more intimate, more fun. It's not as lonely as writing. Writing is just you and a computer, and that it's not communal in any way. Radio is much more intimate.
He still hots the same show with Stugotz on ESPN. Along with the show, he frequently contributes to a number of shows of ESPN Network such as Outside the Lines, The Sports Reporters and College GameDay.
In September 2011, ESPN launched "Dan Le Batard Is ¿Highly Questionable?", which was retitled as Highly Questionable on 2013.
The man is, in fact, an idol in journalism.
Let's wish him much more success ahead of his life.
