Dave ArlingtonDave ignored his mathematics degree from the University of Pennsylvania to pursue two careers in broadcasting, following his interest in both news and music. His two-decade career as a major-market radio personality included six years as morning host at W-Lite, one of Washington, DC’s leading music radio stations, plus DJ and programming positions at WCBM in Baltimore and WASH-FM in Washington.

Following a year as a WTOP newscaster, Dave joined the staff of the Voice of America in 1992, where he hosted the VOA program Stateside, a daily hour of news, music, and features about the United States, followed by three years as a broadcast journalist for VOA News Now. In 2002 he launched Coast to Coast, taking international listeners on a daily journey to learn about the ideas that shape American life.

He retired from VOA in 2005 and fills in on WASH-FM (97.1 FM), where he can be heard on Sundays 10-3.
