His interest in broadcasting began back in high school, in the small Pennsylvania town of Sheffield. He was a student there in 1982, when students had the opportunity to broadcast school news for a local radio station. Dave has either been behind the microphone or in front of the camera ever since.

Dave graduated from Clarion University of Pennsylvania in 1988 with a degree in communications. He worked for several radio stations in Pennsylvania, including Clarion, Altoona and Pittsburgh. His desire to get into television led him to Clarksburg, West Virginia, where he started his television career as an anchor and reporter.

Dave has covered a wide range of stories in his career. From politics to consumer news, from daily general stories to breaking news, he has shared many facets of Eastern Carolina life with viewers. Dave has won many awards for his reporting, from the North Carolina Associated Press and the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas.

Dave enjoys being involved in the community. He has volunteered with Greenville-Pitt County Crimestoppers, Beaufort County Alzheimer's, Beaufort County Special Olympics, Literacy Volunteers, the United Way, Rotary, the Red Cross and with Children's Miracle Network.

When he's not working, you can find Dave enjoying Eastern Carolina with his wife, Stephanie, and their kids. His son, David, attends the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. His daughter, Grace, attends ECU.

Dave and his family live in Beaufort County with their two dogs, Sam and Max.
