Special Guest

David Winter is an award-winning journalist with nearly two decades of reporting experience. He has reported and anchored television news in Montana, Nevada, Texas, Illinois, Michigan and San Francisco, where he was reared.

He graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism. After receiving investigative, spot news and hard news awards from the Associated Press, the National Association of Broadcasters and the Radio Television News Directors Association, David left journalism to work in advertising, marketing, public relations and technology. He traveled extensively in Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and Australia. David says all of these experiences gave him perspective for his return to the Fourth Estate, his greatest passion.

Well, his second greatest passion, next to his wife, two boys and two dogs. And skiing. Perhaps boating. Maybe golf. Food, too he loves food. But journalism is definitely up there, he says, with all the others.
