Dave Price

Dave Price is the weather anchor for NBC 4 New York’s 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. newscasts, and is frequently seen on “Today”, “Weekend Today“, MSNBC and ”NBC Nightly News.”

Prior to joining NBC 4 New York, Price co-anchored “Good Day New York” at WNYW, and steered its morning coverage of the Sandy Hook tragedy, Empire State Building shootings, and Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath.

From 2003-2010, Dave was the weather anchor for CBS's “The Early Show" and covered major weather events for the “CBS Evening News.” In addition to forecasting and reporting on-site from natural disasters for both programs, he traveled throughout the country, and around the globe, bringing amazing feature stories to millions of viewers. 

Dave began his TV career in Erie, PA, as the morning weatherman at WSEE-TV. A year later he was named morning weather anchor at WBBM-TV, the CBS-owned station in Chicago. Dave joined Fox's “Good Day Philadelphia” as its co-host before moving to New York to do weather on “Good Day New York” at FOX Television's flagship station, WNYW-TV. In 2003, he moved to WCBS and CBS News. 

He's won six Emmy awards and a Gracie award for his work on-air.

Dave has had a first-person view of some of the most momentous events of our time. He was in New York City, on-air, as the tragic events of September 11 unfolded, and was one of the few reporters who spent the night enduring Hurricane Katrina with the people inside the Superdome in New Orleans.

In 2010, Dave was in Haiti in the aftermath of the earthquake which ravaged that country, and was dispatched to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico as those along the Southeastern shoreline came to grips with the environmental disaster. From the mountains in Afghanistan to the forward operating bases in Iraq, Dave Price has been on the ground, not just in a newsroom.

On the lighter side, Dave has been our eyes and ears at the center of the action during Presidential inaugurations, sports championships, parades and celebrations. He has flown with the Blue Angels over the Florida coastline, canoed down the Amazon in Ecuador, and ridden Harley-Davidsons in the Australian Outback. He has done very much everything, and been pretty much everywhere, visiting every state, and close to one-hundred countries.

In 2011, Dave took on projects behind the camera; he wrote and produced "Reporting for Service with Bryan Anderson" for WTTW in Chicago. The documentary profiled the return of a triple-amputee Iraq war vet and his efforts to engage others in service to the community. He was recognized with an Emmy for producing.

Price volunteers with the Fairfield County Inner-City Foundation, an organization that fosters educational opportunity for at-risk youth in Connecticut.  He also serves on the board of Let’s Win PC, a non-profit organization whose mission is to assist Pancreatic Cancer patients and their caregivers, promoting research and therapies to bring an end to that dreadful disease.  

Dave also holds a board position with Shatterproof, an organization founded to turn the tide of addiction in America through policy, research, awareness and public/private partnership. Additionally, on a global level, Dave has moderated United Nations General Assembly panels on entrepreneurship in developing nations and on international migration issues.

One of Dave’s most cherished volunteer efforts is his long standing involvement entertaining thousands of U.S. troops serving overseas. For fifteen years, Price has traveled to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Korea, Japan, Cuba, Honduras, Djibouti and military installations around the globe doing stand-up comedy for troops abroad during the holiday season. Dave works closely with the Bob and Dolores Hope Foundation, and serves on the Board of Stars For Stripes. In addition to performing, he is intimately involved in the planning and execution of these tours.

Price is a native New Yorker, a certified scuba diver, licensed pilot and an avid photographer. He and his wife Jacqueline live in New York City with their son Eli, daughter Caroline and their adopted dogs, Wally & Peppa.
