David Beedy – My Story
David Beedy is President of Beedy Media. His unique skill set includes deep roots in TV news and the last 30 years in video production.
David is a writer/producer at heart, always in search of a compelling story.

He’s also an accomplished video editor and videographer, and an FAA-certified drone pilot.

David is a native of Des Plaines, Illinois and became fascinated with media while attending Maine West High School, announcing sports event and shows on the school station, WMTH. His passion for communications, lead him to Southern Illinois University, Carbondale, where he studied Radio/TV.
NAMED BEST CHICAGO RADIO REPORTER – TWICE
Following graduation, he became an accomplished street reporter at WFYR-FM, twice named Best Chicago Radio Reporter. NBC-5 Chicago was his next destination, where he served as a News and Special Projects Producer.
As a union News Producer on strike in 1987, David walked the picket line while his wife, Denise neared the birth of their twins sons, Dane & Christopher. This joyous but unsettling time formed the seeds of starting a video business without the turmoil of on-going labor strife.
