Dave Farra

Biography

If you ask Dave what he is most passionate about, you'll get a quick answer: Developing exciting content. Weather he is conducting an interview with MUSE for CBS Radio, hosting Fight Day Live before a UFC event in Tokyo, or doing play-by-play for the Dew Tour, Dave is always hard at work creating compelling programming.

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Dave into broadcasting at a young age. On air with his own radio show at just 19 years old, Dave was destined to make an impact early on. He worked at a South Carolina radio cluster for 5 years before moving to a prominent CBS Radio station in Las Vegas, NV. It was in Vegas that Dave got bit by the TV bug.

While continuing to host his award winning radio show for KXTE-FM (winner of "Best Radio Personality" twice, and a nomination for "Best Alternative Radio Show in The Country"), Dave began doing work as a TV host on red carpets around Las Vegas. This valuable experience led to exciting hosting gigs with Red Bull, Superior Cage Combat, The International Poker Leauge, The Dew Tour, Yahoo! Sports and more.

In 2011 Dave was hired by Heavy.com as host of the official UFC pre-show, Fight Day Live. Dave travels the world to all major UFC events and serves as the anchor of his fast paced live show that consists of interviews and expert insight of the UFC. The program averaged over 250,000 viewers for each of the 14 episodes produced in 2011.

Also in 2011, Dave was hired by The Gurin Company as the host of a new game show pilot for The Cartoon Network, entitled Launch'd.

Dave also spends quality time behind the camera, as a producer and executive producer of television programming. In 2009 Dave developed the fast paced half hour mixed martial arts program MMA:30 that is nationally syndicated in over 70 million homes. Additionally, Dave executive produces and serves as a broadcast host for the World MMA Awards, with the 2009 & 2010 World MMA Awards shows airing on Versus, and the 2011 show airing on Fox Sports Network. In 2012 Dave and his company were hired by USA Today to produce videos at live sporting events.

Dave's radio imprint has expanded as well with CBS Radio's Dave and Mahoney Morning Show picking up top honors as "2010 Best Morning Show in Las Vegas," the MMA:30 Radio Hour inking a deal in 2012 for national syndication, and over 40 affiliates airing his radio feature, MMA Fix, through Westwood One in prominent markets like Miami, Portland, Sacramento, and Las Vegas.
