A native of Washington, W.Va., Dave Mistich joined West Virginia Public Broadcasting in October of 2012, as the Charleston Reporter. After bouncing around a variety of newsroom roles at WVPB, he now focuses on state-level politics and government, as well as breaking news. Dave contributes to all locally-produced news and public affairs programs, including West Virginia Morning, Inside Appalachia and The Legislature Today.
When news in West Virginia rises to a level of national interest, Dave often files stories for NPR newsmagazine programs like Morning Edition and All Things Considered or for the network's newscast unit.
In a former life, he wrote about music and pop culture. When not banging on a keyboard, Dave plays on the world's best-worst softball team, Chico's Bail Bonds, in Morgantown.
