Dave joined the ABC 13 Team in March 2014, and is thrilled to be back in the Heart of Virginia!
After working as a news reporter and anchor in the Lynchburg newsroom, Dave now works as a part of the ABC-13 Sports Team as an anchor/reporter. In addition to anchoring our weekend sportscasts, Dave reports on all local sports, as well as producing and co-hosting our "Football Friday" and "Full Court Press" shows! Some of the major events Dave has worked at include the NCAA Final Four in Philadelphia in 2000, serving as a National Correspondent for the Little League World Series in 2003, and Frank Beamer's last win as head coach of Virginia Tech at the Independence Bowl in Shreveport, Louisiana in December 2015.
As a student at Liberty University, Dave served as Sports Director for the student-run radio station, handling play by play for 5 sports, while hosting the morning show. As a traffic reporter in Delaware for 5 years, Dave was voted "Best of Delaware" by the readers of "Delaware Today" magazine for his reporting. At WDEL in Wilmington, DE, Dave also served as a news and sports anchor, and fill in talk show host. If his voice sounds familiar, it's not just you -- Dave has worked as a voice over artist for many of the commercials you see and hear on TV and Radio. Dave even served as the announcer and co-host of the national tour of the live game show, "The Price is Right Live!" (Sequined jackets not included)!
Most recently, Dave served as a play by play announcer for the National Lacrosse League, working out of Philadelphia. In his off time, Dave is an avid traveler, and long-suffering Philadelphia sports fan ("suffering" is the key word). You'll also find him behind the grill, or in the kitchen, trying not to burn the house down!
Dave loves meeting new people, and re-discovering all there is to love about Virginia life. Don't be afraid to say hi!
