Dave Kaechele is the traffic reporter for 13 ON YOUR SIDE Mornings.

Getting people to work on time is what he does -- failing at football picks and 13 ON YOUR SIDE Morning News Trivia is what he excels at.

The fourth wheel and wise old sage of the morning team was educated at Western Michigan University and started in radio in Kalamazoo.

He moved to Chico, Calif. to do a morning show at an alternative rock station where he proceeded to get my tongue pierced on the air. After the hole grew over and dental damage was repaired, he exercised better judgment and moved back to West Michigan.

His traffic reporting career began on the radio in 2003. IHe has been on-camera at 13 ON YOUR SIDE since 2009.

He's always said that the people in West Michigan are some of the best in the business and he is proud to be a part of it.

In his spare time, Dave has worked with Bras for a Cause benefiting breast cancer research and No More Sidelines, which helps kids with developmental disabilities build friendships.
