Dave Spahr Career

Dave’s broadcasting career started after he graduated from Ashland University in Ohio. To understand the ins and outs of local TV news, he initially made a stop in Jacksonville, Florida, for a summer post-graduate internship. His first job in Fort Smith, Arkansas, got off to a fast start as he drove through a powerful line of thunderstorms that spawned tornadoes. He arrived on the other side of the front with clear skies and refreshing winds after navigating the whitecap-filled Mississippi.

Dave interviewed then-Gov. Bill Clinton during his brief time on the news and weather team. He would soon go once more to Columbus, Georgia. Continual soldier deployments during the first Gulf War produced a lot of daily news close to Fort Benning, an army base. He was present for the coverage of the “Storm of the Century” that hit the East Coast in March 1993. When he was there, there was “thundersnow.”

Dave moved to Springfield, Missouri, by the mid-1990s. Not only did the weather in the area change every ten minutes, but it was also very unpredictable. On the opposite side of the viewing area, it was not unusual to have a Winter Storm Watch and a Tornado Watch at the same time. Even in the middle of the night, thunderstorms that were extremely loud would frequently fill the Springs, followed by a sunny morning. In the winter, be on the lookout for dangerous ice storms.


Dave had relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina, in the late 1990s, when it was still a little version of Hurricane Alley. The “Appalachian Wedge,” which is a recipe for ice storms, also posed difficulties during the winter. The Raleigh-Durham region (the Triangle) was rendered inaccessible for days in January 2000 when a significant “bomb” (deep low-pressure system) emerged off the East Coast and dumped about two feet of snow in just 24 hours.

Later, in 2003, he relocated to the West and began reporting on Palm Springs’ morning and lunchtime weather. Although not always, it was hot and dry. The Coachella Valley receives sticky, sweltering air when the monsoon machine starts up in mid-to late July. frequently ‘air mass thunderstorms’ in the afternoon. However, they can also be severe at times. As anxious homeowners in the Coachella Valley were jolted by an evening gust front brought on by Arizona Monsoon thunderstorms and blowing gusts of more than 40 mph to the area in July 2005, Dave’s team was the first on-air and the last off the air. Late-spring weather fronts, which frequently don’t bring rain but instead blow sand and dust, can cause winds that frequently close major routes.

2009 saw Dave finish his studies at Mississippi State and receive his AMS seal. Over the years, he also worked as a radio DJ on the side for about six stations, doing CHR/Hot and AC/Adult Mixes. He loves history, is a devoted C-SPAN watcher, and is a very inexperienced body surfer in his free time.
