Dave Bohman Career and WNEP

Before joining Newswatch 16, Dave worked at Television stations in New Mexico, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, and Vermont as a reporter, anchor, and newsroom manager. During his time in Tampa, Florida at WTSP-TV, he covered 8 hurricanes, the contested Presidential election of 2000, and the right-to-die saga of Terry Schiavo.

Dave got into investigative reporting by accident. He was an all-league shortstop at the Governor’s Academy in Massachusetts and went to Syracuse University to study Broadcast Journalism to be a sportscaster. “And a funny thing happened,” he recalls. “I learned I loved playing baseball and watching most sports.

But I never developed a taste for covering sports.” He quickly learned his passion was in the news. That led to an internship with a Syracuse TV station, and a staff reporter position with the school newspaper, which set him on his career path to journalism.

At WNEP-TV, Bohman’s investigations have uncovered corruption that has led to area elected officials leaving office, shady car businesses closing, and state and local governments changing laws and policies.
