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.

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

Eric Smith would have been much better.

This is a poor selection, IMO.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
