Reporter at WPTZ NewsChannel 5, covering news in Vermont, the North Country and Western New Hampshire.
Introduction

David Charns joined NewsChannel 5/31 in December 2011 as the Upper Valley newsroom reporter. He transitioned to the Burlington newsroom in July 2012.

David is no stranger to New England. Born and raised in Massachusetts, he graduated from Boston University where he studied journalism and American studies. He then received a master's of science in journalism from Northwestern University.

David caught the news bug at a young age, even making homemade newscasts as kid. Later on, he became the managing editor of his school newspaper and spent months in the newsrooms of WBZ-TV and, our sister station in Boston, WCVB-TV. Just before joining WPTZ/WNNE, David was a writer at WHDH-TV.

When not following the news, David likes to catch up on his DVR, follow the Red Sox or check out a good movie. He also likes traveling, working out and tweeting.
