Dave Marcheskie is excited to be back home in Pennsylvania. He grew up just a stone's throw away in Pottstown. Don't remind Al Gnoza, but Al announced Dave's high school football games when he played for the Trojans!
Dave joined the abc27 News Team in August 2010. His passion for journalism started at a young age. He always wanted to be in the middle of the action.
In 2007, he graduated from Ursinus College just outside of Philadelphia. Dave earned his B.A. in Media & Communication Studies and Politics. Dave played football for the Bears and immersed himself in media. He reported for the campus TV station, newspaper, radio, and announced various sporting events. In his senior year, Dave decided to take his passion for news abroad. He studied media in Florence, Italy.
Growing up near Philly, Dave is a huge fan of the Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and 76ers. But he also bleeds Penn State Blue and White. Dave followed his fandemonium and interned at Comcast SportsNet in Philadelphia.
Before coming to abc27, Dave spent two years covering eastern North Carolina working for WITN-TV.
In case you're wondering: Yes, Dave does have two different-colored eyes! He enjoys mimicking Food Network chefs by whipping up culinary creations in the kitchen. Feel free to say hi when you see him at the Lebanon Farmer's market picking up fresh ingredients.
Dave lives in Lebanon and covers Lebanon County. If you have a story idea, send him an e-mail or become his friend on Facebook at Dave Marcheskie abcNews.
