Another STL native has made his way back home, with KMOV (Channel 4) hiring David Amelotti.
Amelotti returns to town after having worked for two years as an anchor and reporter at KGAN (Channel 2) in Cedar Rapids.
Amelotti is the third reporter (along with Taylor Holt and Deion Broxton) that KMOV has hired away from Cedar Rapids stations in less than a year.
Prior to his Iowa stint, Amelotti worked for five years at KHQA (Channel 7) in Quincy, Illinois. While working at the station, he also taught a mass communications course at Quincy High School.
He is a graduate of Chaminade College Preparatory School and earned a bachelor's degree in broadcasting from Lindenwood University.
