Dave BernsteinI joined NewsRadio 560 KPQ in 1987 as news host/anchor and account executive.  After 15 years with the team, I took a position with another local radio group which eventually became Cherry Creek Radio. During my tenure with NewsRadio 560 KPQ, I’ve held down just about every role in the operations, programming and news departments. I’ve covered all types of stories including disasters dating back to the Castlerock and Tyee fires, as well as 2015’s devastating fire season, the capture of murderer Jack Spillman, and countless more activities.

I grew up on the West Side in Gig Harbor. I graduated with a degree in journalism from Central Washington University after spending nearly a decade working for ESPN Fantasy Games. I’ve been married for more than 17 years to an amazing teacher. I joined the Washington Ag Network in February of 2015 and am excited to continue working with the agriculture industry. I really enjoy being identified with NewsRadio 560 KPQ.

I grew up in San Francisco, California before moving to East Wenatchee in 1999. After graduating from Washington State University in 2012, I moved back to the Wenatchee Valley and began working for Cherry Creek Media in 2014. I’ve been on air with NewsRadio 560 KPQ since 2018 and thoroughly enjoy the people I get to meet and talk to in our area. You can catch me running around North Central Washington for the next story, or live on the air 5-6 pm for the Afternoon Update.​

In 2018, just on the heels of graduating with my journalism degree from the University of Alabama, I moved to North Central Washington to work for two local newspapers. It was love at first sight when I got to the Upper Valley and I found myself enjoying the members of the community I rubbed shoulders with as I reported for Leavenworth and Cashmere. I recently made the leap into being a news writer and eventual co-anchor for NewsRadio 560 KPQ in July 2019. I’m ecstatic to remain in the Upper Valley and continue reporting for the community members within this area. Regardless of whether it’s print or radio, the medium isn’t the element that keeps me in media, rather my passion for reporting news is. I’m looking forward to being a member of the Cherry Creek Media team.
