My Pets: Dave's pets are Misty & Ben

Dave Adler

Dave Adler joined the WGRQ team in July 2005. As he says, “time flies when you’re having fun!” Not even a worldwide pandemic could keep him from waking up listeners every single morning as host of “Dave’s Morning Show.” After 45+ years in radio, from Wilmington Delaware to Washington DC, Dave is right where he wants to be, and he can’t wait to talk to you and serve you some piping hot SuperHits in the morning!

Dave resides at “Adler Acres” with his wife Laura and dog Ben. They have three grown children.
