David Stradling is the morning meteorologist for ABC21 and a Fort Wayne native. He has lived in the area for almost his entire life.
He attended high school in Leo, went to college at Ball State University where he earned his degree in meteorology in the Fall of 2014.
To pursue his love for weather, he moved to Rapid City, South Dakota for two years to start his career off in the broadcast business. After experiencing a different part of the United States, he is happy to be home with family and friends.
David looks forward to using his already existing knowledge of the weather patterns in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio by putting it to use to deliver accurate forecasts for the place he calls home.
Outside of work, some of the things David enjoys are storm chasing, hiking, cooking, photography, and he hopes to visit all of the National Parks.
