Dave Detling is a reporter for Local 24 and CW 30. He is excited to be living and working in a city and community known around the world.

Prior to coming to Memphis, Dave worked as a nightside reporter at KOCO 5 News in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. For two years, he covered the extreme weather, from tornadoes to ice storms. He’s also no stranger to community issue reporting and getting results.

One of the most memorable stories he covered belonged Linda Cooper. She was trapped under the debris of her home after a tornado ripped through her community. She was saved by a utility worker who was passing by. The help continued after viewers saw her story. Linda, who is 70 percent deaf, was given a hearing aid and other donations. Her story sparked the attention from network news.

Dave jump-started his career while attending Emerson College, working as a writer for 7News Today in New England. After graduating with a degree in Broadcast Journalism, Dave moved to Albany, New York where he worked as a reporter.

A gypsy at heart, Dave loves traveling the country and the world. He believes there’s a story everywhere you look. If you see him out thrifting, enjoying nature, or sipping a cup of tea, say hello! He’s never met a stranger he didn’t know.
