His mother, Sarah, raised him along with his brother and sister.
Since his mother was a single working mother, she taught Venable and his siblings to cook as she needed extra help in the kitchen.
While his siblings did it just because they had to, Venable stayed behind and learned the culinary arts from his mother and grandmother.
He always loved cooking, but when he became an adult, he chose journalism as his career.
However, that did not last long as he joined QVC and started walking towards his actual interest, which was cooking.
Currently, Venable is the host of a successful show where he sells kittens and other appliances and also talks about cookbooks and recipes.
Dating and Relationship (Details on His Wife and Girlfriend)
Venable has not been open about his relationship status and his love life.
There are many rumors that he might be into men and is hiding the fact that he is gay.
However, when it got discussed with Venable, he just mentioned that he liked to keep his private life away from the limelight.
He believes that mixing his personal life with his professional might be tiresome.
Venable earned his high school diploma from Independence high school in his hometown.
After high school, he joined the University of North Carolina and earned his degree in broadcast journalism.
Venable started his career in journalism after graduating from college.
He worked for WOAY-TV for around two years as a TV news anchor and reporter.
He then worked for WTAJ-TV 10 for four years and a few months before joining QVC.
He was working for WTAJ-TV 10 when he stumbled upon a local newspaper called The Altoona Mirror.
In the newspaper, he saw a feature on QVC, which reminded him of all the items his mom sent him through it.
He became curious about QVC. He did a little research and found that many hosts of QVC like Rick Domeier had a local news background.
It gave Venable confidence, so he sent his audition tape to the company.
He then got called for an actual audition where he had to talk about one of the items of his choice, and the company chose another one for him.
During his audition, he got a golden necklace about which he had to talk.
Venable was confused about what to say or do, but then he remembered the motto of QVC, which was storytelling and making the audience relate to the item.
So, he came up with the slogan nothing says I love you like a gift in 14-carat gold and his journey with QVC started in 1993.
Within two weeks of sending his audition tape, he got hired to promote gourmet food items.
And with his hard work and commitment, he scored his show in 2009, where he talked about appliances and food recipes.
He became a fan favorite, and his show became a unique show where a department store had a close connection with its customer.
Around 4.5 million people watch his show every week, and many of them watch the show to listen to him.
Through the show, Venable has made quite a connection with his audience. He explains the appliances as they are and builds up scenarios that his audience can find relatable.
With the success of his show, Venable has also made a name as an author.
He has published four books to date, out of which the recent one was Half Homemade, Fully Delicious: An “In the kitchen with David”.
Recently, Venable made headlines for his weight loss.
He has lost around twenty-three kgs.
Venable has not shared how he lost weight, but people have assumed that he must have made some dietary and lifestyle adjustments.
Before this, he had prepared many thoughtful diet pains, through which many celebrities lost a few kgs of their weight.
So, this time, people think that the TV host turned author made a plan for himself and worked on it to get a better shape.
