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

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

He wears several hats in the sports department, primarily working as a reporter in the field but also as a fill-in anchor and occasional photojournalist. He also produces Rosen’s Sports Sunday on Sunday nights. (Yes, that’s him choosing the excellent bumper music.) David says the highlight of his time at the station is a tie between covering the MLB All-Star Game at Target Field and a trip to cover the Vikings’ game in London in 2013. Since coming to WCCO, David’s work has been honored with two regional Emmy awards, for Best Sports Reporter and Best Sports News Series.

Before coming to WCCO, David spent three years as the weekend sports anchor at WSBT in South Bend, Indiana, where he covered Notre Dame’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, Wisconsin native started his career at KELO in Sioux Falls and also worked at KTIV in Sioux City.

David and his wife have two daughters and live in Minneapolis. When he’s not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, reading good journalism, playing softball and hockey, watching movies, 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.
