"Like what you do, do what you like!"
Dave is lucky to be able to say he's a native of Hampton Roads. As a graduate of Kempsville High School, Radford University, with further schooling at Mississippi State University, he has spent most of his life in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Many recognize him as the long-time Chief Meteorologist at WTKR NewsChannel 3, where he worked for almost a decade. Viewers named him the area's Best Weatherman, and he's also picked up awards from the Associated Press in West Virginia and Ohio for his forecasts. Dave also appeared on CNN, The Today Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and even The Dating Game. His first book was published in 2001, titled, "History Next Door, Stories of World War II by Hampton Roads Veterans."
After 18 years of television weather, it was time for a change that allowed his family to stay in Virginia, close to family. Having worked in radio since 2006, Dave was given the chance to pursue his love of country music by becoming one of the initial staff at US106.1. You can hear him weekdays from 10 -3. You'll also hear his voice and see his face in local and national commercials.
Dave lives in Va. Beach with his wife, two daughters, and their two crazy dogs.
