Dennis Welch

Political Editor
"Politics Unplugged" co-host

Veteran political reporter Dennis Welch joined 3TV in June 2012 as the station’s political editor. In this role, Welch will report on-air, and will help oversee all aspects of 3TV’s political coverage across the station’s digital platforms.

Welch will also co-host the station’s political show, “Politics Unplugged,” with Carey Peña.

Welch is a well-respected political expert in Arizona and his addition means 3TV will provide a stronger, more robust political presence in Arizona. He joins 3TV from the Arizona Guardian, a highly influential online news site dedicated to Arizona politics and government where he served as owner and editor.

During his Guardian days, Welch was a frequent guest on “Politics Unplugged” and has been a regular fixture on the state political landscape since 2005 appearing on numerous radio and television talk shows.

“I am thrilled to start working with such a talented and dedicated staff of journalists,” said Welch. “This is a great opportunity to broaden the reach of my political coverage and tell stories that affect Arizona voters and their families.”

With more than 13 years of experience under his belt, Welch’s arrival only strengthens 3TV’s commitment to providing first-rate political and government coverage across all platforms.

When not covering politics, Welch is an avid runner and fronts a punk rock band that plays frequently throughout the Southwest and California.
