Dave Schroeder joined WBAY in 2012, moving back to the Midwest after working for WLOX-TV in Biloxi, Mississippi.
While working on the Gulf Coast, Dave covered the New Orleans Saints. He also had the opportunity to cover the 2012 BCS National Championship Game and the 2012 Final Four.
Schroeder's first on-air job came in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana. During his time there, Dave covered Notre Dame football and basketball.
Dave prides himself on his storytelling skills and his ability to put sporting moments into context. He has witnessed some of the world's best sporting events and has seen some of the biggest tragedies in sport as well.
Schroeder covered the jubilation of Alabama's 14th National Championship, saw Jack Nicklaus sink a 102-foot putt in Michigan, and watched Drew Brees set the single-season passing record in 2011. He has also had to watch in horror as a high school football player collapsed on the field, dying of a heart attack.
Through all he has covered, Dave has brought sincerity and perspective, bringing his audience compelling stories from the sporting realm.
Dave has won awards from the Indiana and Mississippi Associated Press Broadcasters Associations.
Outside the newsroom, Dave loves to travel and explore the outdoors. He has visited 20 National Parks and his road trips have taken him to 48 states.
