Dan Slepian Television News Producer


Dan Slepian is an award-winning investigative producer for Dateline NBC and a Stony Brook alumnus, ’92, who has investigated and produced documentaries about wrongful convictions for more than a decade. His latest work, Conviction, is an original, 12-part digital series and the first of its kind from NBC News. Filmed over two years, it follows Slepian as he investigates the case of New York State inmate Richard Rosario, who was convicted of murder in 1996, yet always insisted he is innocent. During his days at Stony Brook University, Slepian served as the Student Government President from 1990 to 1992 and continues to stay connected through his role on the professional board of advisors for Stony Brook University’s School of Journalism. In 2016, he shared his experiences with current students as part of the My Life As Speaker Series.
