In his childhood, he used to broadcast news from an inside cardboard box in his family’s living room in Syracuse, New York.

All his childhood mischiefs were showing his true desire and ambition to become a journalist and he knew exactly what he wanted to become in the future.

The Syracuse native was born on 8 November 1973 in Syracuse, Newyork. Although his profession was journalism, David possesses the opposite dimension than his profession as he seems reluctant to reveal his dating status. However, he once went to a gay bar, which became the starting point of gay rumors. Also, he was rumored to dating an entertainment magazine writer in 2015.

The anchor is not only known for his incisive analysis and silky newscasting but also because of his hunky frame. The sexiest man of 2014 is a hugely popular figure among both the sexes, raising sex appeal in both of them.
