David is a popular member of the ABC team 

David knew what he wanted to be from an early age and at the age of ten, he built his own news station from cardboard boxes in his living room, and he never missed the evening news.

His passion and determination for journalism has been unwavering and he explained his feelings towards his craft to USA Today: "When I look back at it as an adult, when I was a kid and I wanted to see the world, that for me meant covering the severe thunderstorms in the next county or going to the New York State Fair with the local reporter and photographer who were willing to let me jump in the backseat of the car."

He added: "Now, I am literally seeing the world. I'm grateful for that, and I could not have put words to it when I was a kid, but it's all the same hunger that drives me today."
