David Hodges

David tries to accomplish two things on ever story he tells - shed light on hidden issues and help people in need. As an investigative reporter he focuses on covering local government and consumer issues. He started his investigative reporting career at NBC 2 in Fort Myers, FL. While there, David uncovered law enforcement were illegally conducting video surveillance that wasn’t disclosed to the courts, exposed a taxpayer funded city council donation fund used to give money to churches and non-profits and revealed numerous problems with rules and regulations that hold shady contractors accountable. His first job in television was at WFFF in Burlington, Vt. That's where he covered local and state government and started a “You Paid For It” series highlighting questionable uses of taxpayer money. David moved to Charlotte with my girlfriend who is a mental health therapist specializing in helping children in crisis. Originally from Jacksonville, FL, David is a huge Jacksonville Jaguars fan (sorry, David!). Since he has no true loyalty to an NBA team he decided to adopt the Charlotte Hornets. More than anything he's excited about getting to know the people of Charlotte and help the people who need it.
