David Brown, for those that might remember, hosted Monitor Radio's daily afternoon news program for 4 or 5 years here in Boston (and then from a closet in his LA apartment). To my ear, he sounds very much the same as he did back then. He had worked at Marketplace for nearly 3 years (as a senior producer) before getting the full-time hosting nod there.

I tend to remember him as a curious, quite (yet quite passionate) fellow, who would eat entire packets of Sweet'N Low brand granulated sugar substitute in the announcer's studio. Hmmm.
