David Furst is the Weekend Edition Host for WNYC - and is also host of The Christie Tracker Podcast. He joined WNYC and New Jersey Public Radio in 2012. He was born and raised in the Garden State so he really has no excuse if he pronounces the name of your town wrong.
He spent more than a decade reporting and producing for WAMU in Washington, D.C., where he was the host and executive producer of a weekly news and culture magazine. During his time in the nation's capital, he also produced award-winning documentaries like 20th Century Washington, Rock Creek Park: Gathering Place and Dividing Line and The Washington Opera Goes to Japan, where he followed Placido Domingo and the company during their first international tour.
In the mid-to-late 90s, David worked as a classical host for KPAC in San Antonio and launched a live contemporary music show for sister station KSTX.
He lives in Chatham, NJ with his wife, two children and an alarmingly large record collection.

In 2011, residents voted to merge Princeton Township and Princeton Borough into a single town - Princeton. This week, in his state of the state speech, Governor Christie held up Princeton as a shining example of what consolidation can do to reduce the cost of services in New Jersey towns. He claimed a savings in one year of $3 million.
But Planet Princeton says that "$3 million" in savings is a myth that was debunked last year. Mary Mann with New Jersey News Commons has been following the story and speaks with New Jersey Public Radio's David Furst.
