Dan Harris is the co-anchor of ABC's Nightline and the weekend editions of Good Morning America. In 2014, he wrote "10% Happier”, about how experiencing a panic attack live on Good Morning America led him on a journey into meditation. The book was a surprise hit, landing at #1 on the NYTimes “Best Seller” list. That success led Dan to create a 10% Happier meditation app, and start a 10% Happier podcast where guests --from the Dalai Lama and chef Mario Batali to RuPaul and George Stephanopoulos-- talk with Dan about how meditation fits into their lives. Before joining ABC News in 2000, he worked for local news outlets in Boston and Maine. He lives with his wife, Bianca, and their son, Alexander, in New York City.
