With many changes to the Los Angeles Dodgers broadcast team – one thing remains steadfast. The beacon in the booth that is Joe Davis will not be entertaining another job opportunity.
Equally important, Davis was asked about his interest in the Detroit Tigers job. Moreover, this is interesting because Davis was a Michigan native.
Furthermore, Davis let everyone know he’s happy with the Dodgers.

Dodgers fans can breathe a sigh of relief after reading the quotes.
“It’s not like we immediately said no and would never move back,” Davis said. “It’s something that we discussed because I think it could be a special position where whoever gets it, the right fit can be there for a really long time.”
“A few years ago, definitely would have been interested,” Davis said. “But we’re really happy in L.A. So that’s a no.”
Two years after replacing the legendary Vin Scully, Davis is carving out his own legacy at the ripe young age of 31. With Orel Hershiser as his sidekick and Alanna Rizzo on the field – Los Angeles fans are treated to the best coverage in baseball on a nightly basis.
Moreover, I have met Joe Davis. He is absolutely as humble and as prince of a man as anyone I’ve encountered in show business. We are all very fortunate to call him one of our own. Davis finished up the story with a great quote that allows us to know he’s right at home.
“It really is living a dream,” Davis said. “There’s still frequently pinch me moments and I hope I never lose that feeling. I hope I never become jaded about it because it is really special that I get to do what I have always dreamt of doing, back like I said, I was in fifth or sixth grade, knowing it’s exactly what I wanted to do. And to be able to do it at a place like Dodger Stadium and do NFL games, do the big college games we’re doing, it really has been special. I don’t see it ever losing its luster for me.”
It feels like Davis has been a part of the Dodgers family for longer than he has. Indeed, here’s to decades longer of Davis’ voice making memories. It sounds like his intention is to do just that.
