Dave Curren is a meteorologist for News 12 New Jersey. He feels his duty is to produce and deliver the most accurate, honest weather forecasts for his home state of New Jersey. He was born in Elizabeth, grew up in Cranford and spent most of his summers, since he was a baby, on Long Beach Island. He had his career epiphany on a summer day, surfing with a few friends. He thought to himself in order to get waves you need wind, and voilà, his weather career was sparked.
Curren graduated from Kean University with a degree in Atmospheric Science. After interning at News 12 New Jersey, he was offered his first job on TV at News 12 Westchester in the lower Hudson Valley. An opportunity of a lifetime opened up at News 12 New Jersey and he jumped at the chance to be the meteorologist for New Jersey. He calls Morris County home now. There is nothing he loves more than discovering new places around the State to eat and share good times with his family.
