Dave Kinchen’s broadcast work features several special assignments that go beyond the daily news story to include multiple installments. He has also traveled to different U.S. cities for major stories. Some examples can be found below.

Dave Kinchen found himself in the middle of the Baltimore Riots while covering the controversial police-custody death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray in 2015.

Dave raised awareness of colon cancer by telling the story of his father who died from the disease at a young age. In this piece, he took viewers along as he underwent a life-saving colonoscopy on-air.

Dave worked with FOX Philadelphia to launch the “FOX Confidential” reporting series, focusing on violent crimes that have dramatically changed lives. This is one of those reports.

One of Dave’s special assignments involved spending several days down along the Jersey Shore and Delaware beaches before, during and after the arrival of the destructive Hurricane Sandy. This report shows conditions just as the storm began making landfall.

Another special report included a week-long trip to Penn State University covering the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal that ultimately brought down legendary football coach Joe Paterno.  The scandal made national headlines and continues to do so.

As the American auto industry resurfaced from tough times, Dave Kinchen teamed up with Northwood University to highlight major changes in their operations. This report covers the history of the industry, and examines its future.
