Pat Donovan grew up in Wareham Massachusetts a lifelong New York Giants, New York Mets and Los Angeles Lakers fan (it's a long story).

Shortly after moving to Tampa, Pat began his career in sports broadcasting co-hosting a couple of shows and covering teams in town including the Tampa Bay Devil Rays starting in 2007. Pat was so blown away with the amount of great young talent and great young men in the Rays clubhouse he quickly went from being an objective reporter to a fan, agonizing while the Rays struggled but having a great time watching this young team grow before his eyes.

Pat has has co-hosted Buccaneer post game shows and draft specials each of the past three seasons including a draft special in 2007 co-hosted by Buc running back Earnest Graham. Pat and Mike Corcoran also hosted On Deck (The first radio show in Tampa focused only on Rays baseball) while at ESPN and again with 1010 CBS Sports. Pat and Mike also brought a unique look at sports and beer to CBS in 2009 with Sports News and Brews.
