Dave Benton photo I'm proud to be part of the Eyewitness News Team! After working almost 20 years in broadcasting, I'm glad to call WCHS-TV8 / Fox11 my new home. It's a great opportunity, as well as, an advancement in my career. You can catch me anchoring the weekend newscasts with Kallie Cart and reporting during the week. So, what about me? I'm from Kenova, WV and attended Ceredo-Kenova High School. I earned my B.A. in Speech Broadcasting and a minor in Spanish at Marshall University. I landed my first job at KBIM TV in Roswell, New Mexico where I was awarded First Place Investigative News and Best In Show for the Associated Press. The following 17 years were spent anchoring and reporting back home for WSAZ in Huntington, WV. The most memorable story I've covered to date is the filming of "We Are Marshall." The story of the Marshall University plane crash hits home to many people in our region. Being able to interview the stars, local people they portrayed, and even the premieres in both Huntington and Hollywood was a great experience.

I live in West Huntington with my golden retriever "Libby" and cockatoo "Lucy." You can often catch me in Ritter Park with both of them. I enjoy traveling, cooking spicy foods and spending time with family and friends. My passion is story-telling! If you have any story ideas you'd like covered on Eyewitness News please e-mail me.
