College Football, Basketball and MLB Play-by-Play Commentator
Dave Flemming joined ESPN as a play-by-play commentator for college basketball in 2010. In addition, he has since become a regular voice on the network’s baseball and football coverage.
Since the 2016 season, Flemming has provided play-by-play commentary for the Thursday night college football games with reporter Laura Rutledge and a rotating group of ESPN’s top analysts. He returns to Friday nights in 2019, with a rotating analyst and reporter Paul Carcaterra. Flemming’s play-by-play duties for ESPN have grown to include baseball as well. He has called televised Major League Baseball games for the network since 2014 and in 2016 he was named to the Monday Night Baseball team. Each year, he calls MLB playoff games on ESPN Radio. He has also been involved with Little League World Series coverage since 2013.
In addition to his ESPN responsibilities, in the spring of 2020 Flemming will begin his seventeenth year as an on-air voice for the San Francisco Giants on KNBR-AM radio broadcasts and select games on television. During his time there he has received three Northern California Emmys for his play-by-play commentary. In 2008, Flemming was also named the best of the new generation of baseball announcers by the Sports Business Journal.
Flemming handled the radio play-by-play duties for Stanford football for six seasons and has served as a substitute announcer on Golden State Warriors radio broadcasts.
