Thanksgiving Day National Dog Show

On Thursday, November 22, following the telecast of NBC’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, television goes to the dogs until two.

Famous broadcaster, David Frei, will once again bring his suave descriptions and jovial humor to the ring as co-host. Frei is a friend and familiar face to the dog show ring. For us, he is the voice of dogs everywhere.

“I love football and I watch plenty of it,” said Frei, a former NFL public relations executive with the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos. “Just ask my wife.  But, on Thanksgiving Day, it’s ‘Dogs Until 2.’ Knowing the football culture as I do, I actually think football fans will be happy to go along, as long as they can be left alone the rest of the afternoon and evening.”
