Dan Abrams was named "Nightline" anchor and Chief Legal Affairs anchor for ABC News in June 2013. In addition to this role, he continues his daily legal segments on "Good Morning America," and covers a broad array of other topics with a new branded segment on the show as well. He joins his fellow "Nightline" anchors on the primetime show "The Lookout" and reports on all ABC News platforms, including ABCNews.com and ABC News Radio.

Prior to "Nightline," Abrams was ABC News' legal analyst. Since February 2011, he has provided legal insights in major court cases and complicated legal questions from Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias to George Zimmerman and the Supreme Court.

Before joining ABC News, Abrams worked at NBC for 15 years as a reporter for NBC's "Nightly News," host on MSNBC, and Chief Legal Correspondent for NBC News. From 2006 to late 2007, he served as General Manager of MSNBC, where he presided over a period of unprecedented growth, with ratings and profits each increasing well over 50% during his tenure. During that time, he was also a member of the NBC Universal President's Council.

Abrams is founder and former CEO of the Abrams Media Network, which includes eight popular websites: Mediaite, a media news website; Geekosystem, covering tech and geek culture; Styleite, which covers beauty and fashion; Sportsgrid, which follows sports and sports-related media; Gossip Cop, which monitors false reporting in the celebrity gossip industry; The Mary Sue, a site for female "geeks"; The Jane Dough, devoted to young women in business, media, and other fields; and The Braiser, focused on the personalities and lifestyles of world-renowned chefs. Together the Abrams Media Network serves close to 17 million unique visitors per month.

A graduate of Columbia University Law School, Abrams is a recognized writer. He has published articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, The Yale Law and Policy Review, the Huffington Post, the Daily Beast and Mediaite, among many others. He is also the legal columnist for Men's Health magazine.
