Dave Joseph - New Kings Arena Announcer
 
According to Matsuda, http://frozenroyalty.net/2013/01/09/...nformal-skate/

ESPN Los Angeles radio personality Dave Joseph will take the late David Courtney's place as arena announcer for the Kings.

TonySCV 01-10-2013 07:04 AM

I think Dave has done a few games before as a fill in.

Ron 01-10-2013 08:50 AM

Eric Smith would have been much better.

This is a poor selection, IMO.

Bandit 01-10-2013 10:09 AM

As long as he doesn't try to do gimmicks it'll be fine. Anyone getting this gig was going to have a **** time. "Los Angeles Goal" will never be the same again.

Yeah i remember hearing him on ESPN radio about 5 or 6 years ago and remember there was a Kings connection. I know he has had some affiliation with the Kings in the past but I can't put my finger on exactly what.


I'm ok with him. There are big shoes to fill and there isn't anyone available to fill them any more adequately.

Shellz 01-10-2013 10:33 AM

Gosh, this makes me sad. It's never going to be the same again.

A little harsh...

But I would imagine Eric Smith's schedule is already hectic that he can't be the Kings' primary PA announcer. He already works for the Dodgers and replaced Courtney for Clipper games (prior to that, Courtney replaced him in 2008).

KINGS17 01-10-2013 11:17 AM

Gonna give this guy a chance to grow on me and make this job his own.

He has a tough act to follow under difficult circumstances.

The Butcher 01-10-2013 11:40 AM

I just pray to god he doesn't sound anything like the guy from the Ducks. That style drives me bananas.

The Big Giant Head 01-10-2013 11:41 AM

i had forgotten about david passing, this really isnt going to be the same. I hope this isnt the same guy that filled in for David last season when he was out sick. Whoever that guy was, he was brutal.

KingsCast 01-10-2013 11:59 AM

Dave Joseph is a class act and he's got a good voice. He's the perfect choice.

It's the same guy.

He is a class act, I just don't think he's right for this job.

Well, at least its not Dennis Packer. I know him personally and had a falling out with him and it would be brutal for me to have to listen to that guy at every Kings' home game.

So there's that.

The Butcher 01-10-2013 12:12 PM

Does anyone have any clips or video to share? I'm dying to know what this guy sounds like.

David Courtney wouldn't think so...

You mean the guy who had to come down from the press box in the middle of the game to take over while DC was getting sick and do the PA on the fly.. ya that was him, why don't you give it a try? He did fill in a few times prior to that but there was also someone else filling in when he couldn't. David Courtney always went to Dave Joseph first.

You can find some video and audio clips here http://www.davejoseph.info/

Anyone taking over this job is going to have big shoes to fill and it's not going to be easy. DJ learned a lot from DC over the last 10 plus years they have worked together. I think he is going to do a great job, the fans might think otherwise.

DeeMeck 01-10-2013 02:05 PM

Miller, Nickson, Courtney.

We are beyond spoiled in this regard.

Wait, did he use to work for the Kings website as their online reporter? (the one prior to Heidi Androl)

I miss Heidi :(

SLang 01-10-2013 03:12 PM

Loved Courtney, but really, why not give the guy a shot?

Sure it will never be the same, but it can still be good.

KingsKnight 01-10-2013 03:37 PM

Welcome Dave Joseph, we look forward to you being part of the Kings family.

...is what we should all be saying.

WRONG! It wouldn't be Kings fans if we weren't complaining before the guy even stepped foot in the building.

I hope he has been practicing his monster truck rally commercial voice:

I dont have a choice, i have to give him a try. All things considered though, maybe now that the job is his and he's not subbing or just brought in on the fly, he'll be better...or at least better than i remember.

I certainly am spoiled when it came to that because David Courtney had been doing it for so long and as i a kid i always thought his voice was just perfect for what he did, it was one of the first thing that stuck out to me as a kid at my first Kings game.

Sybil227 01-11-2013 11:00 AM

As The BGH said, we're going to have to give him a try, since that's what's been decided.
But if he doesn't work out, I thought I'd mention that I was at the Reign game last Sunday - and their in-stadium announcer did a great job. We really liked him.
