Host of City Spotlight, Dave Krieger
Dave Krieger is a former major market radio news reporter and news director and television news reporter/anchorman and investigative journalist, who won national and state news awards from Associated Press Broadcasters. Dave was a former member of Radio and Television News Directors Association. Dave began studying law in early 1990; specializing in real estate, tort, consumer credit and collection issues. His first self-published work, The Credit Restoration Primer (a self-help, credit repair book) was first released in 1995 and is now in its 5th Edition. Dave currently serves as a paralegal, legal research analyst and consultant for a network of attorneys across America that handle real estate and foreclosure matters. He has lectured at the Texas County Clerk’s school hosted by the V.G. Young Institute and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension and currently conducts audits of county land records and instructs attorneys on the subject of Chain of Title Assessments & Quiet Title Actions in continuing legal education courses around the country. The newest version of his book, Clouded Titles – MAYDAY EDITION, is 432 pages of updated information about the aspects of foreclosure defense, strategic default, quiet title actions and county land record functions; coupled with a detailed Index and Table of Case Citations. This book is highly regarded by many attorneys, who have given Clouded Titles to their clients. More recently, Dave teamed up with California attorney Al West, also an infrequent guest on City Spotlight, to write The Quiet Title War Manual, a 512-page book outlining the design and construction of quiet title actions. Dave’s most recent work, FDCPA, Debt Collection and Foreclosures, was launched in 2017 and discusses the paradigm shift in the use of Fair Debt Collection Practices Act actions to thwart foreclosures by unscrupulous servicers and their law firms. Dave has also written numerous instruction manuals for attorneys, homeowners and investors on a wide variety of legal subjects, many of which he brings to WKDW- FM listeners during his show. His zany attitude and direct, blistering attacks on the financial industry is riveting and keeps his listeners glued to their radios waiting for the next bit of revealing information and scathing commentary.
