Dave Grunebaum

I'm a five-time Emmy nominated journalist with extensive experience in television, radio and multimedia news. I'm adept at live breaking news and packaged stories. My reports have been featured by the BBC, CBC, Reuters Broadcast, Deutsche Welle, NPR, CNN.com and Time.com. I have my own equipment and can work as a one-man-band VJ, radio correspondent/producer or as part of a team. I've been working in Southeast Asia for the past three years and currently train local reporters in Myanmar. I also enjoy writing and producing text/multimedia stories from the region.
