After graduating from Temple University in 1994, Dave Lesko joined WFMZ as a sports photographer. Aside from a brief stint at Philadelphia's Comcast Sportsnet in 1997-98, Dave has spent his entire professional career with the 69 Sports Team.

Dave's colorful game reports have become a staple of WFMZ's high school football coverage. Whether a 65-0 blowout or a 6-2 snoozer (both of which he's witnessed), Dave always figures out a way to entertain the audience with a witty recap that adds spice to The Big Ticket.

Dave began reporting for the 69 Sports team in September, 2000 and anchored his first sports segment in October, 2002. While his on-air duties have grown, Dave has maintained his role as WFMZ's chief sports photographer.

In recognition of his high school sports coverage, Dave was honored by the Colonial League as its "2003 Media Member of the Year."

A graduate of Emmaus High School, Dave has carte blanche to root for the Green Hornets.
