This first event of 2020 features Dave Price, with his presentation titled, “The Insider on Iowa Politics.”
As the acclaimed author of the book series, “Caucus Chaos,” Dave reveals the intrigue, uncertainty, scandal and controversy surrounding the Iowa Caucuses. His timely presentation will provide a fun and insightful look into the Caucuses as well as leadership lessons from the campaign trail.
An Edward R. Murrow and Emmy award-winning journalist, Dave is the go-to expert when it comes to covering the Iowa Caucuses, state politics and the role Iowa plays in choosing the nation’s president. Dave relies on plenty of audience interaction as he shares his experiences covering local, state and national politics in Iowa since 2001.
Dave Price, WHO-TV’s political director and host of the Sunday morning show, “The Insiders” also anchors Channel 13 News on weekend evenings.
It’s difficult to find a local television reporter in the United States who has spent more time covering presidential candidates than Dave. Dave grew up in Belleville, Illinois, where he developed a passion for politics and his beloved St. Louis Cardinals from his dad.
He graduated from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and later worked at the powerhouse radio station, KMOX, in St. Louis.
Dave left St. Louis radio to earn his Master’s Degree at the prestigious University of Missouri-Columbia. He stayed in Columbia, where he served as morning news anchor and assignments manager at KOMU-TV.
He then moved to Montgomery, Alabama, to help launch WNCF-TV, where he served as a weekend anchor and political reporter.
In 2001, Dave began his career at WHO-TV, where he specializes in coverage of the Iowa Caucuses and state government.
Dave has earned a national Emmy, Edward R. Murrow and dozens of state and regional awards for his reporting and anchoring. He also authored his first book, “Caucus Chaos,” an insider’s account of the always unpredictable way Iowans help pick the next president.
He lives in Clive with his wife Emily and son Hayden.
