I'm Kim David, but you can call me "KD." I'm a Rochester “homie” and the most experienced newscaster and news reporter in town. I'm up well before the sun rises getting ready for my weekday morning drive news updates on News-Talk 1340 KROC AM, from 5 AM - 8 AM. I work hard to get the latest news, sports, and weather so you don’t have to. While Gordon Deal is covering national news with his “America’s First News” program, I deliver the latest state and local news and updates on breaking stories - on air and online. If it's happening in Rochester, "kd" knows about it first!
