Dave Kunz

Dave Kunz
Dave Kunz is a 20-year-plus employee of ABC7, and became the Eyewitness News Automotive Specialist in February, 2001. In addition to his staff duties as a photographer and editor, his on-camera work makes ABC7 the only station in Southern California with a dedicated reporter covering automobiles and related topics.

Growing up in the San Fernando Valley, Dave always gravitated toward the Southern California car culture that was all around him. His television career started in an unusual way, however. Dave was offered a "temporary, part-time job" at KABC-TV while in college as a business major. Though business would always be something to fall back on (keeping his family happy), broadcasting was continually calling his name. He went on to a formative career in television, first at KTLA and then back at KABC.

Eventually Dave was able to merge his career in television with his passion for things with wheels, and now gets to experience just about anything that runs on gasoline (or increasingly, clean new cars that don't use any), and bring them to Eyewitness News viewers. He is a member of both the Motor Press Guild and the Society of Automotive Historians. Dave also volunteers as an emcee at local vintage car shows such as the Newport Beach Concours d'Elegance, the Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance and the Art Center Car Classic.

Dave spends his free time with his wife Suzanne, who helps him keep a small collection of classic cars in (usually) running order.
