WEZY WAMT WMMB WKIS WESH-TV
Don spent ten years in Florida, starting as the graveyard jock at
1350 in Cocoa in 1972, moved to WARN in Fort Pierce in early 1974 and then joined Lynn Younger at
1240 in Melbourne in May of ‘74. He became program director and morning man the next year. In early 1979, he took the afternoon drive anchor position at
740 in Orlando. Gould had also become the weekend sportscaster and weatherman at
2, Orlando/Daytona Beach in August of 1978 for the princely sum of five dollars an hour. In mid-1979,
he left radio to pursue television full time. He was brought to WNBC-TV in New York in 1982 as sports anchor where he backed up
Marv Albert and Len Berman for 10 years. In addition, from 1983-91, he was also seen on the
NBC Network alongside Connie Chung on NBC News at Sunrise and also anchored the
ESPN Sportscenter in the mid eighties.
Don dropped us a note to let us know "...I've been at 10-10 WINS Radio (WINS-AM 1010) in New York City doing weekend morning sports since December 2006. I'm doing this to make just enough money to pay my enormous (and might I say unwarranted) property and school taxes and cover my golf expenses".
