“This job is like holding a rare piece of crystal,” Gold said. “I always knew it. It’s now been reinforced…Football is upon us and that’s the best medicine I could’ve had.”

The Brooklyn, New York native has been a member of the Crimson Tide Sports Network since 1988. Gold is a 4-time recipient of the Alabama Sportscaster of the Year award and captured the Chris Schenkel Award in 2019.
