Dave Debo's journalism career runs the gamut from public radio to commercial radio, from digital projects to newspapers. With over 30 years of experience, he's produced national television news programs and has worked as both a daily and weekly print journalist and web editor.

He's worked in Buffalo for WBEN, and was the longest serving host of their acclaimed weekend politics news program "Hardline" for over 9 years.
During the 1990's he hosted WEBR's popular Weekend At Your Service program, and after that was a weekend edition host on WBFO. He's also worked n Niagara Falls at WJJL, and was news director at WTKO/WQNY in Ithaca NY.
In Washington DC on 9/11, he was the producer of First Business, a nationally syndicated morning business newscast seen on over 175 television stations. When the Iraq war broke out he was working as a producer and story coordinator in Fox News Channel's Washington DC bureau, and was simultaneously employed as a producer and newscaster at NPR's flagship station WAMU and as a web producer at WUSA-TV.
