David started working for WGRC in August 2017. In addition to hosting on Sundays from 3-7 pm, David specializes in audio production and does his best to bring his youthful age and enthusiasm to the rest of the WGRC staff.
When he was 13 years old, David and his family started the business David’s Awesome Cookies, a small roadside stand that grew to become a legend within the Central PA region. David eventually sold the business to the Walter family in an effort to solely focus his energy on going to college, but his original business still exists today as David’s Awesome Cookies and Pretzels.
David graduated from Susquehanna University with a degree in broadcasting. Although his original desire was to make and record his own music, David became fascinated with radio, and eventually joined the radio station WQSU during his sophomore year of college. After his graduation, David continued working at WQSU as a volunteer; and eventually applied and graduated from the Confer Radio Institute, a two-week program specifically designed to educate and train the future broadcasters of America in the realm of sales, advertising, production, and sports.
It was David’s love of music that eventually led him to seeking a career in radio. Growing up as a kid, David fondly remembers the moments his dad used to play guitar and listen to music on the radio. His dad and his mom were also the main source of influence and encouragement for David’s faith, and he came to Christ when he was age 12, the same year that he started learning how to play the guitar.
When he is not busy working, David enjoys volunteering at WQSU and occasionally leads worship services at Buffalo Valley Church of the Brethren. He also enjoys shopping at local thrift stores for new music, and also tries recording his own music when he has an opportunity. God, Music, and finding a career in radio have been the central components in David’s life, and he’s grateful to find all of those essential components here at WGRC.
