In the 20-plus years he's been on television, Dave Price has had a first-person view of some of the most momentous events of our time: From the tragic events of September 11, which unfolded while he was on-air, to enduring Hurricane Katrina inside the Superdome with the people he was covering, to reporting in the rubble from the devastating earthquake in Haiti -- Dave's work has often taken him outside the comfortable confines of a broadcast studio. He has travelled to the mountains of Afghanistan and to the forward operating bases in Iraq, flown with the Blue Angels, canoed down the Amazon, ridden Harleys through the Australian Outback -- and done pretty much everything in-between, in every state in the nation and in close to 100 countries around the globe. Not bad for someone who did not enter the broadcasting business until he was almost 30.
In addition to his work in front of the camera, for over a decade Dave has traveled to war zones and military installations all over the world, volunteering his time to do stand-up comedy for troops during the holiday season.
If anyone has stories to tell, Dave does. Join us as Dave takes us behind the scenes for a candid look at his curious career, with all the highlights and lowlights which have shaped it.
