Dave Strader

Sports Media Weekly Podcast No. 74- Dave Strader, NBC Sports/Versus

I am riding solo on this week’s edition of the podcast as Ken Fang at Fang’s Bites had a previous commitment and could not join me for the show.

There is no news segment this week, just our interview with Dave Strader, NHL play-by-play voice for NBC Sports and Versus. ┬áDave tells us what it’s like to just work for the network after many years of splitting his hockey duties with stints calling games for the Red Wings, Panthers, and Coyotes.

Dave and I also talk about the dynamics of having his game analyst at ice level instead of the booth, the opportunity for the NHL in light of the potential absence of an NBA season, and some of the teams he likes in this year’s NHL campaign.
