David Pratt is a Canadian sports radio personality who works for CKST TSN 1040, co-hosting the morning show with Jake Edwards (radio personality) since September 2013. Prior to the show with Bro Jake, until 2011, he hosted along with Don Taylor the weekday afternoon talk show Pratt and Taylor on CKST (then known as "The TEAM 1040") in Vancouver. After a hiatus after leaving Team 1040, Pratt returned to the airwaves on CKNW until eventually returning to CKST to co-host the Bro Jake show.

Pratt has a running feud with former Vancouver Canucks general manager Brian Burke that often found its way on to the show. [1] A 30-year veteran of sports media, Pratt was formerly a correspondent and host of Last Call at sports cable channel TSN, and worked at Vancouver radio stations CKLG, CFUN, CHRX, CKWX and CFOX, as well as CFJC in Kamloops and CJAV in Port Alberni (where he began his broadcasting career as a DJ in 1974).

Previously, David Pratt worked for the Vancouver Province. On June 3, 2008, it was revealed by a reader that a recent sports column of Pratt's in the Vancouver Province contained two plagiarized lines from SI columnist Rick Reilly. He was subsequently released from his position with the Province, admitting that it was a dumb mistake and apologizing to Reilly for not quoting him as such.[2]
