Dan Abrams is CEO of Abrams Research, legal analyst for ABC News and a substitute anchor for Good Morning America. Prior to his appointment at ABC, Abrams was the chief legal analyst for NBC News and MSNBC from 2008 through 2010. From June 2006 to October 2007, Abrams served as general manager of MSNBC, during which time ratings grew by 62% and where he branded the network "The Place for Politics." Prior to his management appointment, Abrams hosted The Abrams Report, a nightly legal affairs program, and later hosted Verdict with Dan Abrams.
In November 2008, Abrams gave up his full time anchor role to create Abrams Research, a social media strategy firm. In July 2009, he launched Mediaite.com, a media news site that combines editorial content with analytic rankings of media personalities. In January 2010, Abrams moved into the tech world with the launch of Geekosystem.com. By February, those two sites and their syndicated content were together averaging an astounding 5 million unique visitors per month (according to Quantcast). Abrams has since launched Styleite.com, a fashion news site with a unique user generated community, the sports ranking site Sportsgrid.com and TheMarySue.com, a geek site for women.
Abrams is also a recognized writer. He has published articles in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today magazine, The American Lawyer and the Yale Law & Policy Review. He has also written for online media properties such as The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast and, of course, Mediaite. He is a regular columnist for Men's Health and in March published his first book, Man Down: Proof Beyond a Reasonable Doubt that Women Are Better Cops, Drivers, Gamblers, Spies, World Leaders, Beer Tasters, Hedge Fund Managers, and Just About Everything Else. He is also the host of Investigation Discovery's Chasing Justice With Dan Abrams.
