Get to know Dave!
Dave Lawrence spent most of his life in the Midwest until he made Nevada his home in September 2011. Dave was born and raised in Kansas City and is a huge Chiefs, Royals and Kansas Jayhawks fan. He graduated from Park University in Parkville, Missouri.
He joined KOLO in October of 2013 as anchor of Good Morning Reno after moving from Las Vegas, where he worked at FOX5 as a Morning Reporter.
Dave got his start in media with a radio job in high school and spent more than 17 years in Kansas City radio before making the move to television… although he says many of his friends jokingly tell him he's ‘got a face for radio.' He spent those radio years hosting morning shows until he joined the morning team as anchor at WIBW-TV in Topeka. He spent 5 years there and was also a reporter for KCTV5 in Kansas City.
In addition to a life in media, Dave has been a financial advisor, a poker dealer for the World Series of Poker and a traffic reporter.
In his spare time, Dave enjoys playing basketball, softball, or anything fun in the outdoors…and catching up on sleep.
