LOS ANGELES (AP) - David Courtney, the veteran public address announcer for the Los Angeles Clippers, Kings and Angels, died Thursday. He was 56.
The Clippers said he died in Los Angeles, but gave no other details. Courtney had missed Wednesday night's game against Minnesota because he was in the hospital awaiting an angiogram, according to his Twitter feed.
Courtney had announced Los Angeles Kings game for 24 years, including their run to the Stanley Cup championship last season, but he had been idled this season by the NHL lockout. He had spent the last 19 summers announcing Los Angeles Angels games.
He was the voice of All-Star games in three different pro leagues, working the 2002 NHL event, baseball's 2010 event and last year's NBA All-Star game. He also worked the 1981 NBA finals, the 1993 and 2012 Stanley Cup finals and the 2002 World Series, won by the Angels.
