Dave Sweitzer started in Morgantown radio doing impersonations on one of the Morning Radio programs while attending Morgantown High School. While studying at WVU, Sweitzer began broadcasting news at the college radio station but was soon hired to do part-time airshifts on the weekends by the same commercial radio station mentioned previously. At the ripe old age of 19, Dave became their afternoon DJ and decided to embrace Pink Floyd’s motto “we don’t need no education,” and withdrew.
Sweitzer decided that a format that fit better with his actual musical tastes would be a good move so he pursued and earned a job at WCLG doing afternoons for 5 years. After a short break to work on his creative writing, Dave returned to radio for 7 years as the Morning DJ for a Rock Station in Fairmont.
Dave returned to WVU to earn his B.A. in Creative Writing* and later returned to the air on WCLG in January 2018.
Sweitzer Rocks Nights on WCLG, Monday – Thursday, 7-12PM and on Fridays & Saturday 7-10 PM.
* Regents B.A. with Area of Emphasis in Creative Writing, Class of 2005.
