David’s interest in news media began early in life. Bored with the Dick and Jane books his classmates were into, he began reading The Salt Lake Tribune at age six. At seventeen, he became the Editor-in-Chief of Bountiful High School’s student newspaper, The Brave.

David graduated Cum Laude from Weber State University in December of 2005 with a degree in Communication / Electronic Media. For his first post-college job, he began freelancing for KSTU-FOX 13 as a video editor. He was hired full-time in that position in June of 2006.

Then, in August of 2006, FOX 13 launched a new website, called MyFoxUtah.com (now defunct). David was the first Web Content Producer to be hired for FOX 13’s new-and-improved online presence, and he has happily worked in KSTU’s web department ever since.

In July of 2008, David was promoted to Senior Web Producer and began overseeing FOX 13’s web department. In January 2009, the team launched an even bigger and better web site, Fox13Now.com – the web site you are now visiting.

In his spare time, David enjoys writing music, travel, cooking and cinema. Look for the back of his head on FOX 13’s “Live at Eleven,” “Live at Noon” and “Live at Five.”

As Christensen began doing chest compressions on the victim, other bystanders also took action. One called […]

    This is how the NFL draws the ‘magic yellow line’ in televised games

    If you’ve ever watched a football game on TV, you’ve probably seen the “magic yellow line” that appears on the field to help you track what’s happening in the game.  Players seem to be standing right on top of it, even though it isn’t really there. It’s an impressive technical feat that relies on several different systems working together, adding less than one second of a delay to the live broadcast. Watch this video by Vox to see how it’s done.
