Episode 37: Dave Westberry
In this episode, host Dave Fiore speaks with Dave Westberry, the “Voice” of the Florida State University Marching Chiefs for the last 42 years. Dave won the job as the band’s announcer at an open audition the year after he graduated and calls it the best volunteer job you could ever have.
The Nashville, Georgia native who grew up in St. Augustine found his way to Tallahassee as a junior and never left. Dave spent much of his 35 years in state government with the Florida Auditor General’s Office before finishing his career at the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. He is a longtime member at First Baptist Church Tallahassee, and his volunteer work includes eight mission trips to Haiti. Dave has been married to his wife, Janie, since 1988.
