Dave’s TV credentials include hosting Channel 9’s 20 to 1, appearances on Network Ten’s The Project and This Week Live, as well as ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks and Agony Uncles. He’s even tried his hand at acting, appearing on Channel 9’s House Husbands and ABC TV’s Upper Middle Bogan.

Dave spent four years co-hosting Fox FM’s Breakfast radio show alongside his good friend Fifi Box, which he decided to wrap up in 2017. In
