In and around sports his entire life, David Grubb was born in Detroit, Michigan; some of his earliest memories are in the fabled Tiger Stadium and at the not-so-fabled Pontiac Silverdome.
When his family moved to the Crescent City, David’s Sunday’s became the property of the New Orleans Saints as he was in the Superdome to see the boys in black and gold rise from the Aint’s to the Who Dats!
As a high schooler David played hoops for the Edna Karr Cougars and while he loved to compete quickly realized that his basketball career wasn’t going any further. He moved on the Wake Forest University where he got to mix with basketball legends like Tim Duncan, Randolph Childress and Muggsy Bogues and worked out with the WFU Women’s Basketball team for a season as a practice player. He also served as a supervisor of intramural athletics officials for 3 years.
While at Wake Forest, David began to pursue a career in sports broadcasting by hosting “Deacon Sportsweek” on WAKE-TV, the university’s television statioan. After a couple of stints behind the camera, David worked as a sportscaster at KLAX-TV in Alexandria, LA and at WGGB-TV in Springfield, MA where he was able to cover a wide range of high school, collegiate and professional sports.
For the past decade, David has worked in public relations, primarily in public education and the non-profit area. He has led public relations initiatives for the Algiers Charter School Association (2006-2008), Louisiana Department of Education (2008), Louisiana Department of Social Services (2008-2009) and currently with Southern University at New Orleans where he also serves as Sports Information Director.
David is married to his lovely wife Desiree and they have two children, Ivan (18), a freshman at Northwestern State University and Nathalia (4).
