Dave Pitcher attended Columbia College Chicago while he worked both a full-time job for the cable company and a part-time job as a studio crew member at CLTV. After graduating in with a Bachelors in broadcast television, he helped launch Comcast Sportsnet Chicago in 2004.
After a few years, he worked his way up the ladder to a promo editor. There he created custom graphics and edited commercial content for the station and professional sports broadcasts. In 2012, he left to help launch Total College Sports an over-the-top digital sports network. There he worked on a wide variety of sports-related video on-demand content, including a college football postgame show that aired weekly on Hulu. When that company was sold, ownership started a new similar venture called 120 Sports.
There he became the managing editor and supervising graphic artist to a team of fifteen video editors and two graphic designers. A little over three years later, the company downsized. Back on the freelance market, he took a gig as a freelance graphic designer for BMG. Now Dave is the production supervisor for BMG assigned to the TD Ameritrade Network.
Dave’s sports experience goes back to helping launch Comcast Sportsnet (what is now NBC Sports Chicago) in 2004. CSN was a seven day a week regional sports station that focused on the Cubs, Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks. There were numerous sport-based shows throughout the day. There was a sit-down discussion show, pre and post-game shows, and a show that was similar to Sportscenter that was more highlight-driven. As a video editor, he created highlights, pre and post-game packages, interviews, in-depth breakdowns, montages, and documentary-style interviews.
Dave left CSN in 2012 to go to Total College Sports. TCS was an over-the-top network that focused on college sports. Similar to Comcast Sportsnet, TCS produced numerous Sportscenter-like shows throughout the day. As a video editor, he created highlights, pre and post-game packages, interviews, in-depth breakdowns, montages, and documentary-style interviews on Avid editing systems.
In 2013 I helped launch 120 Sports (which is now Stadium), an over the top network that focuses on both college and pro sports. He managed a team of sixteen editors and two graphic designers. Very similar to CSN, 120 Sports produces numerous sports shows throughout the day. Also using Avid editing systems, the team was responsible for creating sports highlights and montages for the daily shows. Another part of the team was responsible for putting more lengthy in depth packages for the shows. The graphic design team was responsible for making show logos, on air graphics, as well as network branding. Dave left there in 2017 and have worked with BMG ever since.
Outside of Television, Dave loves spending time with wife and two young daughters. He’s an avid sports fan and is usually always outside.
