Biography

Over the years, David has been the radio play-by-play man for several pro sports teams including the NBA's New Jersey Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Boston Celtics, and the NFL's New York Jets and Miami Dolphins. He also had stints with the New York Cosmos soccer team and as the voice of Princeton Universitymarker basketball and football.

Mizlou Television Network, CBS Radio/Westwood One

Howard David was discovered by Mizlou Television Network President Bill Schwing while working as a morning Dee Jay in Trenton, New Jersey. He soon became the top announcer for Mizlou, covering more than 300 sporting events including major college football bowl games, NIT basketball, NASL soccer, and college bowling. Many of these games can still be seen on TV4U.Com

David also worked for the CBS Radio (later Westwood One) network as lead play-by-play voice for its Sunday Night Football coverage until 1995, when CBS moved him to the Monday Night Football booth, replacing long-time voice Jack Buck. He remained in that position until 2002, and from 1998 on was pulling double duty as the Jets' radio announcer (replacing Ian Eagle, who had moved to the NFL on CBS TV coverage), requiring a substitute when the Jets would play on Monday night. (Another example of CBS needing a substitute for David came during the 1999 NFL Conference Championship games, where the Monday Night Football radio team was slated to cover the NFC Championship Game between the Falcons and the Vikings; since the Jets were in the AFC Championship game against the Broncos David was unavailable for the game and John Rooney subbed for him. David returned to call the Super Bowl for the network.)

David left both positions after Super Bowl XXXVI to take a position with the Dolphins. His contract was not renewed after the 2004 season. In 2009, he rejoined Westwood One to serve as play-by-play announcer for one of the network's Sunday afternoon NFL games each week.

Feud with Neil Rogers

While working for the Dolphins station, David became embroiled in a feud with radio personality Neil Rogers, who tagged David with the name "Moe Howard David" and continuously mocked David with Three Stooges-type comedy bits featuring Moe and his sidekick, Steve "Goldy" Goldstein, another personality on the same station. Rogers and his listeners referred to him long after David left the station, with Rogers regularly plays a clip of the Moe character saying "doy doy doy." Rogers left the station in 2009.

Current assignments

Currently, David is one of Westwood One's NFL voices. In 2006, David provided hand-by-hand coverage for many events at the World Series of Poker for Sirius Satellite Radio. He is currently trying out for the time slot vacated by the departed Tony Bruno on Sporting News Radio.
