Don Gould    Biography

Don spent ten years in Florida, starting as the graveyard jock at WEZY-AM 1350 in Cocoa in 1972, moved to WARN in Fort Pierce in early 1974 and then joined Lynn Younger at WMMB-AM 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 WKIS-AM 740 in Orlando.  Gould had also become the weekend sportscaster and weatherman at WESH-TV 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.
In 1993, he began the first of two turns at WCBS-AM and the ABC Radio Network.  From 1995-1997, Don was the weekend sports anchor for WPIX-TV, Channel 11 in New York. He has been a contributing reporter to World Business Review with General Alexander Haig and recently ended a three-year position at (the legendary) WABC-AM in New York. He is still heard occasionally on the ABC Radio Network.  Don also has been referred to, by sportscasters Ralph Kiner and Fran Healy, as the "most entertaining public address announcer we’ve ever heard" during his one-year stint at the home of New York Mets, Shea Stadium, in 1994. Don married the former Paula Apicerno in 1991. He is a graduate of New York University and was a Lieutenant, with tours of duty in both Vietnam and Korea. 

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".
