Radio Personality | Announcer
With a pair of championship rings to show for his efforts, Dave Joseph continues to be one of the premiere announcers in sports. Having called games in MLB, NHL, MLS, NCAA, AHL, ECHL and having worked for ESPN and NBC, Dave is one of the most versatile and sought-after voices in the industry. Currently residing in Nashville, Dave serves as the Public Address Announcer for Vanderbilt University baseball, soccer and hockey as well as Lipscomb University volleyball. He has also called games for MLS Cup Champion Los Angeles Football Club and can be heard anchoring Morning Drive traffic reports on radio stations in LA and San Diego. Dave has made national television appearances on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and voiced the Los Angeles Kings' 2014 Stanley Cup Championship at STAPLES Center.
While never missing a game in eight seasons behind the microphone for the Kings, Dave also handled regular PA duties for the AHL's Ontario Reign as well as occasional stints for the Dodgers, Galaxy, UCLA football & basketball, USC baseball and Long Beach Ice Dogs hockey. Upon moving to Middle Tennessee in 2021, he spent one season as PA Announcer for Lipscomb baseball and filled in announcing softball and basketball along with Vanderbilt basketball and lacrosse. Dave has spent over three decades in the industry and runs his own voiceover business.
Dave's radio career began at the age of 15 in his hometown of Ishpeming, Michigan, as a disc jockey on Top 40 Q107/WMQT. From there, Dave attended Hofstra University on Long Island and worked as a DJ on 106.1 WBLI. Upon graduating, Dave landed a job as an engineer at News/Talk 77 WABC in New York City, manning the controls for on-air personalities such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and then-Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Dave served as the Executive Producer for the nationally syndicated "Mike Gallagher Show" before moving to Providence, Rhode Island to work for News/Talk 630 WPRO as a show producer. In 2000, his talents then took him to Los Angeles where he helped launch 1110 ESPN, running the board for the "McDonnell-Douglas Show" in afternoon drive. Dave also served as the rinkside contributor on LA Kings radio broadcasts for three seasons and worked for several years as a reporter covering Southern California sports including the Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers and Angels. He then went on to anchor Morning Drive sports updates for seven years on 710 ESPN and weekends for three years on NBC Sports Radio.

In running large athletic events, the impression a PA Announcer can have on all fans is an important one — and I never had to think twice about the positive impression that I knew someone would leave with when Dave was behind the mic. I could always breathe a breath of fresh air because I knew his job would be done with incredible professionalism, enthusiasm and great attention to detail. Simply stated, our events were better because of his presence and great communication to all in attendance.
