David was a popular morning show talk host on Pinellas Park’s WPLP who arrived from Houston in 1984. Back in Texas he had worked for a number of major stations including KNUZ, KULF (1971-news director), KPRC and KLYX-FM.
For the four years he was in Tampa Bay, the Virginia native consistently outdistanced competitor WFLA to win his time period. Along with many other station staffers, he was let go when Susquehanna Radio bought WPLP from Gannett Broadcasting in 1988 and the talker became WTKN. Fortunately, he wasn’t out of work long. The veteran talk show host replaced Dick Norman in the mid-morning 9 until 12N slot on WFLA.
Fowler, who had been married five times, was retired at the time of his death in 2004. He passed away of natural causes in Cadiz, Kentucky at the age of 67.
