Hired at KCTV
Emmy-nominated Dave Jordan joined KCTV as a reporter in January of 2012.
During his previous tenure at News 9, Dave launched several investigations and broke several stories. His investigation into Snyder City Government led to the resignation of three city council members, including the Mayor and triggered an investigation by the State Auditor's office which concluded that funds were misappropriated. Dave uncovered documents that showed the state legislature was looking into closing three prisons and replacing them with private facilities. Senate leaders initially denied those plans were in the works. Most recently, Dave obtained exclusive video of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper choking a paramedic while a patient was being transported.. His coverage made headlines nationwide and led to the trooper's suspension.
Dave previously worked for KARK-TV, the NBC affiliate in Little Rock, Arkansas. While there, he interviewed former Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton, former Attorney General John Ashcroft and Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez. Dave is remembered for his coverage of the federal extortion trial of Pine Bluff Alderman Jack Foster, a chemical explosion at the Teris Plant in South Arkansas and the December 2004 snowstorm.
Dave, an alumni of Long Island University in New York State, spent his senior year of college reporting for Bloomberg Business News. His articles appeared in newspapers across the country, including the New York Times. Upon graduation, Dave Jordan left his native New York City for a reporting position at WJCL-TV in Savannah, Georgia. His investigative coverage of mismanagement at the Chatham Nursing Home led to the resignation of senior staff. From there, Dave Jordan headed back to New York City to resume business reporting before being lured back into television.
