Bio:David likes to think of himself as a real Renaissance Man (at least that's what he tells his mom). In 1995, David founded the Great Lakes Radio Consortium and served as Managing Editor until May 2000. During that time he created an institution that has received more than 70 state, regional and national awards. By the time he stepped down as Managing Editor, the GLRC had grown to serve more than 120 stations in 14 states. In May 2000, David became Director of National Programs for Michigan Radio, the parent organization for the GLRC. He also oversaw the birth of the Great Lakes Television Consortium in the role of Senior Producer.
David has produced, written, and hosted the award-winning television documentary, "Insatiable Thirst: Groundwater and the Crisis of Development," which aired on Michigan public television stations in 1997.
A former professional baseball pitcher (Philadelphia Phillies system), David has served as radio color analyst for Michigan Wolverine football and basketball, and as football and basketball broadcaster for Syracuse University.
In August 2001, David returned to his sports roots full-time, accepting a job as General Manager of the Michigan Sports Network. In that capacity, he was responsible for running the business side of the University of Michigan football and basketball radio broadcasts as well as some play-by-play and hosting duties.
These days, David runs his own marketing company, The Hammond Group, does sports television broadcasting for NBC, and freelance reporting for the GLRC.
