Dave Johnson, WTOP’s former sports director, honored by DC United

by | Feb 26, 2024

DC United honored WTOP’s former sports director Dave Johnson. In the team’s home opener against the New England Revolution, the soccer team honored Johnson by naming Audi Field’s broadcast booth “The Dave Johnson Broadcast Booth.”

The team’s president of business operations Danita Johnson said Johnson has been a “cornerstone” of the DC United community from its beginning in 1996.

“His iconic voice has narrated this club’s history from RFK Stadium and four MLS Cups, all the way to Audi Field, our soccer-specific stadium that opened in 2018,” Danita Johnson said in a statement.

He called play-by-play for 27 years on TV and became the radio voice for the club last year.

Johnson, who left WTOP amid voluntary buyouts in 2022, said he was overwhelmed by the kindness and love he received.

(In June 2022, Capitol Communicator reported: WTOP all-news radio in Washington, D.C., (103.5) will help a cause close to the heart of two of its on-air employees, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Greater DC-Maryland Chapter, reports Inside Radio.  Multiple Sclerosis hit the station when Senior Sports Director Dave Johnson and Anchor/Reporter Mike Murillo were both diagnosed with the disease in 2019 and 2016 respectively.)
