While working for CNN in Atlanta in 1990, he created The Naked Truth, a half hour rock TV show. For three years, The Naked Truth knocked down walls in the music industry. Bands like Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Tesla, The Cult, Motorhead, and many more appeared on the groundbreaking show. Barron’s credibility got the show serviced from all the major labels, when such a task was tougher than getting into the White House!!! It was at CNN, he created a team of talented writers, editors, and controlroom techs, to deliver incredible shows.

The Naked Truth aired from 1990-1993, and was considered the Wayne’s World of rock and roll tv. In 1993, The Naked Truth completed it’s three year run on TV. Barron moved into directing music videos, and had a successful run, that included Stuck Mojo’s “Risin” in 1998, which world premiered to 5 million viewers on TNT and was also featured on MTV’s Total Request LIVE with Carson Daly. The video was a WCW parody with wrestlers Diamond Dallas Page, as the protagonist, and The Raven as the antogonist. Daly showcased the video on a live set with Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, getting body slammed in the process. All totaled, Barron’s music videos have been viewed by over 12 million TV and internet viewers.

After the CNN-AOL merger in 2001, Barron took his talents to Hollywood, where he has made a fine career as a director/cinematographer, working on feature films, reality tv, concerts, and music videos. In Hollywood, Barron has worked with Bruce Willis, David Caradine, Sarah Maclachlan, Bill Withers, Mary J. Blige, and Oksana Grigorieva. Willis personally hired Barron to direct and shoot Bruce’s blues cover band and Ivan Neville. It was a short two city tour in Idaho.

From 2004-2015, David worked on many successful reality shows. Shows like: Rock of Love with Bret Michaels, Flavor of Love with Flavor Flav, Wife Swap, Trading Spouses, Braxton’s Family Values, TI and Tiny, Shah’s of Sunset, Punk’d 2.0, Real Housewives of Atlanta, Real Housewives of DC, and Elimidate.

Despite what Dave accomplished, something was still missing with all the opportunities coming his way. He missed working in the music industry. So in 2013, he got an offer that would relaunch himself back in the music business. Dave brushed off some of his writing skills, and did some freelance reporting for online rock and roll website, RockRevoltMagazine.com He covered Black Sabbath’s new LP secret listening party for 75 rock journalists, along with Rolling Stone, LA TIMES, TIME, NY TIMES, and others. He also covered the premiere screening of the documentary Battlefield of the Mind, directed by well known photographer Fran Strine. At the event, Dave interviewed Dave Ellefson of Megadeth, Corey Lowery and Donald Carpenter from Eye Empire, and Troy McLawhorn of Evanescence.

In 2014, Barron felt that it was time to bring back the radical TV show to radio. The Naked Truth is a hour long rock specialty show that features rising cutting edge artists, rock and roll heavy weights, and killer sound bites from the TV show archives.
