David Sutta joined the CBS4 news team in April of 2007. As South Florida native, David adds local perspective to his Emmy award winning storytelling.  David covers a gamut of issues for the station including housing, politics, and the environment.  In addition to reporting he conducts a number of special project long format stories for CBS4.

Prior to moving back to South Florida, David worked as a crime reporter for the NBC affiliate in Fort Myers, Florida. Over five years he covered nearly a dozen hurricanes, several high profile cases, presidential visits, and National Guard deployments. He also produced several in-depth investigations as the station’s first Chief Investigative Reporter. Some of those investigations prompted major changes including the way schools are secured and how Florida Highway Patrol does enforcement on the interstate.

David got his start in news at the NBC affiliate in Miami, WTVJ. As an intern he learned as much as possible and quickly became a utility player. David eventually became an associate producer and then producer. He is credited with helping the station transition to server based newscasts. Some of his systems are still in use there today.

David is a graduate of Florida State University where he co-created and anchored the first student run college show (Sportschop) for network air. He also helped establish and report for FSULIVE, the college’s first daily live newscast program. He is a proud member of Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) and he attended Miami Killian High School.

Family comes first for David. He’s the second oldest out of five children. Despite his allegiance to the Seminoles, David is still an avid Miami Hurricane fan. When the two play each other you should avoid him! When he’s not digging up a story you can find David playing basketball, skiing, traveling, and scuba diving in the Keys.
