After stops in Mobile and Los Angeles, David returned to the Crescent City to join WWL 870 AM--"Voice of the Gulf South" as news anchor in September 1989. His work with WWL has earned him a host of honors from the Press Club of New Orleans, the Associated Press, as well as national and regional Edward R. Murrow awards for excellence in broadcast journalism. Over the course of his 33 years behind the microphone, David has covered everything from earthquakes to hurricanes, September 11, riots, raids, and corruption, and some of the most sensational "trials of the century" including those of Edwin Edwards, John Delorian, and of course, the greatest challenge of his career - Hurricane Katrina.
