Born and raised in Minnesota, Dave got his start at Bemidji State University where he graduated with a Communications Degree and was featured on the campus station, KBSB. He then moseyed across town where he began work at Paul Bunyan Broadcasting where he worked his way into afternoon drive on KB101! The man faces sleep deprivation as he anchors the overnight portion of the yearly Radiothon To Prevent Child Abuse! He can also be heard on KZY fluxing his capacitor during tours to yesteryear!
Dave also spends some time helping the Lakeland Television team with their nightly newscasts behind, and occasionally in front of the camera picking up a spatula or forecast incoming weather fronts from time to time.
Mr. Brooks recently married the most lovely gal who, despite her small stature, terrifies him! They welcomed their own little tiny bundle in the summer of 2016 and are still learning how to cope with their Big Chunk-O-Cute! Dave has been active in the community having invested his time with the Bemidji Jaycees, officiating roller derby and mentoring in Student’s First. He loves his sports, Halloween and keeping a ninja death-grip on his inner kid. Honestly, we now KNOW there is something wrong with him.
