David Courtney died today at the age of 56.
He was the voice of All-Star games in three pro leagues, NHL, NBA, and MLB. He also announced the 2012 Stanley Cup finals and the 2002 World Series. He sometimes filled in to announce L.A. Dodger games. He did announcing for the Clippers for 5 years and also the Angels. He even called out the L.A. Rams final seasons before they moved from L.A. He also did a stint as the Houston Astros announcer.
David held numerous positions with the LA Kings. He started with them in the '70s. He became the official announcer in 1989 and called the games for 22 seasons.
His voice was memorable and he was passionate about his work. He worked at the Fabulous Forum as well as the Staples Center. He truly was the voice of the Kings.
He was recognized by fans and when he wasn't at an arena or a ballpark, he worked traffic and sports updates for three L.A. radio stations.
His announcing jobs even paved the path to voice roles in the movies "Tooth Fairy," "Angels in the Outfield," "61*" and the TV show "Home Improvement."
How wonderful that he was able to share the pride, excitement, and glory of the the Kings winning the Stanley Cup.
This man did it all. He had a wonderful career and we will all miss his voice and passion for the events he announced.
