David Marash, known as Dave Marash (born May 3, 1942) is an Americanmarker television journalist.

Marash garnered considerable attention when he joined Al Jazeera English in January 2006 as the network's Washington, D.C.marker anchor, thus becoming the de facto American face of the new English language station. Two years later, in March 2008, he stepped down from his position. Marash explained, "To put it bluntly, the channel that's on now — while excellent, and I plan to be a lifetime viewer — is not the channel that I signed up to do." Specifically, he cited the loss of editorial control and his inability to vouch for content that the network was broadcasting, as reasons for his departure.

Prior to his work at Al Jazeera English, Marash worked with ABC News. Marash came to ABC News from WCBS-TVmarker in New Yorkmarker. Marash had previously worked at New Brunswickmarker, New Jerseymarker station WCTCmarker-AM (1450), where he hosted a nightly talk show, "Dave Marash On Call." Prior to joining WCBS-TV, he was a reporter at WPIXmarker. His last appearance prior to joining Al Jazeera English was on Nightline. He had anchored newscasts at WNBCmarker in New York and WRC-TVmarker in Washington, D.C. during the mid-1980s.

Before Nightline, Marash was host of ESPN's Baseball Tonight and NBC's GrandStand, which alternated as a National Football League pregame show or a sports anthology, depending on the season. In the early years of the Fox television network, Marash hosted a magazine-style show of science and technology entitled Beyond Tomorrow.

Marash has also received Emmy Awards for his Nightline coverage of the Oklahoma City bombingmarker and for his coverage of the explosion of TWA Flight 800marker.

He is a graduate of Williams College.
