Many times a sportscaster's career ends at ESPN, but Dave Furst's career started there as a sideline reporter. Dave covered Indiana University football for the network, while still a student at IU. The rest is his TV history.
His career has taken him to stops at WTVW-TV in Evansville, Ind., WLKY-TV in Louisville, Ky., WLFL-TV in Raleigh, N.C., and WOWK-TV in Huntington, W. Va.
He started as a sports reporter at RTV6 in October 1997 and was named Sports Director in January 2002.
Furst is a 10-time regional Emmy award winner for his sportscasts and as host of "Sunday Sports Xtra." In 2011, he won an Emmy as the top sportscaster in the Lower Great Lakes region. In 2006, he won an Emmy for his Indianapolis introduction of IndyCar driver Danica Patrick.
His many first-place Associated Press awards include honors for "Sports Xtra," in addition to his work in North Carolina, West Virginia and Ohio.
