When I am not tracking down Florida political stories or conducting one on one with the governor; I am still investigating stories that affect Southwest Florida.  Dave’s aggressive style of reporting has taken him to Washington, D.C., and New York City for investigations. An extraordinarily strong point of mine is covering breaking news as it happens and how it affects our viewers at NBC-2.
