David McCoy joined the WCCO-TV sports team in March 2013 as a reporter and producer.

It’s a return to WCCO for David, who was an intern in the sports department while earning a journalism degree at the University of Minnesota.

Before coming to WCCO, David spent three years as the weekend sports anchor at WSBT in South Bend, Ind. During his time in Michiana, David covered the Notre Dame football team’s appearance in the BCS national title game, followed Irish linebacker Manti Te’o to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony, and repeatedly slammed his head into his desk while covering the Te’o Fake Girlfriend Hoax.

The Sheboygan, Wis. native started his career at KELO in Sioux Falls and also worked at KTIV in Sioux City. He has earned multiple awards from the Associated Press and two regional Emmys.

In his free time, David enjoys spending time with his wife (Emily) and daughter (Madelyn), playing awful golf, reading good journalism, watching movies, playing hockey and going to the ballpark.

David loves the big games as much as the next sports guy, but says his favorite part of his job is telling stories about athletes you might not otherwise hear about. If you know of a great story idea, please send it to dwmccoy@wcco.com.
