Latest information in Delphi double homicide investigation

Dave comes to FOX59 as a decorated sports journalist, winning multiple awards from the Associated Press and the Society of Professional Journalists.

Prior to his arrival in Indianapolis, Dave worked for nearly five years as a sports anchor and reporter at WTXL in Tallahassee, covering athletics at four major universities and more than 50 local high schools. His most eventful month came at the end of 2013/beginning of 2014, following Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony and continuing on with the whole Seminole team to Pasadena, California and the final BCS National Championship game.

Dave got his start in sports broadcasting at KWYB in Bozeman, Montana. Yes, he did cover the occasional rodeo, but his primary role was TV sideline reporter for Montana State football, a position he held for three seasons, and for which the Society of Professional Journalists honored him with a First Place award for sports reporting in 2011.

Before making it out to Big Sky Country, Dave graduated Summa Cum Laude from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University with a dual degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science. While at SU, you could often find Dave working in the sports department at CitrusTV, the oldest and largest entirely student-run TV station in the United States.

Dave and his wife Christina are thrilled to call the Circle City home! If you have an idea for a sports story unique to your favorite team, player, or to central Indiana, shoot him an email at dgriffiths@fox59.com.

    IOWA CITY, Iowa – Four Hoosiers scored in double figures led by Robert Johnson with 19, but Indiana’s hot start (17-4 over the first 5:06 of the game) was not enough to hold off Iowa.

Still, the Texas native does have a brief experience with the rivalry. “When I came for my visit,” Edwards remembers, “and heard people yelling how they hate IU, and we’re not even playing IU, you start to realize something must be between IU and Purdue.” Just a little something: 204 prior meetings, a recruiting advantage perhaps, and of course bragging rights moving forward. “Everybody’s talking about it,” continues […]
