Dave Bryan is the political reporter for KCAL9 in Los Angeles. He covers national and international news, as well as state and local politics.
Although he has a desk in the newsroom, Bryan says he mostly works in the field. His travels take him all across the state of California.
Bryan recalls a time when he spent 2 months covering a story in Somalia in the early 1990's. He says it is the worst place he has ever been, and remembers getting shot at repeatedly.
Bryan is constantly on his cell phone, checking for leads on potential stories. The former University of Maryland grad has won numerous awards for his work including the regional Associated Press honors.
Bryan has spent the last 19 years with the KCAL9 team in Los Angeles. Although he mostly stays in California, the stories he covered have taken him to Washington D.C., China, Somalia, and more.
