Dray Clark is a reporter/weekend anchor for NBC10. You can watch his live reports both weekdays and weekends.
Dray joined NBC10 in October 2017. He is most excited to cover the Greater Philadelphia region due to his personal connection to the region. A native of Chester, Delaware County, Dray is excited to work in the area that his family is located.
Dray is passionate about both reporting and anchoring. “As a reporter I get the chance to tell stories, a chance to shed light on a dark situation or help people find solutions through our storytelling and their willingness to open up,” he said. “As an anchor, you're the facilitator of a conversation. You're delivering the news of the day and trying to do it in a very conversational and welcoming way, much like you would do with your friends or family at home. The most important aspect is gaining the viewers’ trust. It's a real privilege to hold the position.”
One of the most the memorable stories Dray has covered as a journalist was in Michigan when he profiled a family who had three children who suffered with a rare genetic disorder called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy. Dray and his team traveled with the family to Duke University Medical Center where they received lifesaving surgery. So many people followed their story and celebrated with the family when the surgeries went well. The parents left their home in Michigan and moved to North Carolina so their children could get the help they needed. Those parents inspired him to never give up and don't take no for an answer. The experience changed his life.
Dray has worked in television for 17 years at various stations, including Macon, Georgia; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Cleveland, Ohio; Philadelphia, New York City, and back again in Philadelphia at NBC10. A graduate of Chester High School in Delaware County, Dray received a Bachelor’s Degree in English from Lincoln University.
Dray received multiple awards during his career, including three Emmy Awards for reporting, multiple Emmy nominations, as well as awards from the Associated Press and Press Club of Cleveland.
When Dray is not on the news, he enjoys spending time with his family. A father of two, he spends most of his time off-air with his daughter and son. He is passionate about empowering young people and gives motivational speeches to students, parents and church groups. He also enjoys playing basketball and watching documentaries.
