Kim David is Rochester's most experienced newscaster, and anchors news on Rochester's Good Morning. If it's happening in Rochester, KD knows about it first. Join Kim David weekdays starting at 5am on KROC-AM. He provides the latest overnight news, sports and weather and updates on developing stories. He gets us super early so you don't have to! * * * * * * * * * * My normal workday begins at 3 am, when the vast majority of our listeners/readers are still in bed. I spend about an hour going through news-related info before I get to work and hit the ground running, starting with my first newscast at 5:30 a.m. I provide news every half hour through 10:30, Monday-Friday. I also spend time with Rich Peterson, talking with guests - or just chatting with him. Although I work at a newstalk station, I love music. I also love to cook and bake. There is nothing more enjoyable than the scent and taste of a fresh loaf of rye bread! I also enjoy the goodies in our garden - all that work during the spring/summer pays off with the fall harvest. My everyday goal is to provide the Rochester area with the latest and best news, on air and online. See you at 5:30!
