David Kumbroch

David Kumbroch is now and has always been a storyteller.

A recent graduate of The University of Alabama, David Kumbroch joined WHNT in May 2011 as a Multimedia Journalist. A Telecommunication and Film major, David was also a proud member of the nationally-renowned Alabama Forensics Council where he won two national championships in Extemporaneous Speaking.

As a member of the University Fellows Experience, a group of students dedicated to leadership and community service, David spent several weeks in Marion County documenting the lives of local residents. His work was later exhibitioned by The University of Alabama Honors College.

His passion for telling stories began in his hometown of Collierville, Tennessee where David hosted a local morning show at Collierville High School -- an experience he credits for sparking his interest in television news. While in high school, David also earned a national championship in Extemporaneous Speaking. After his first championship, David was invited by Finalist Files, an organization that provides research and strategic advice to high school forensic competitors, to write two educational books and a monthly subscription on Extemporaneous Speaking.

David comes to WHNT News 19 after three years of experience interning at Alabama Public Radio, Fox 13 in Memphis, and WVUA in Tuscaloosa.
