Donovan, 47, succeeds Doug Vaioleti, who served as lead analyst for three years. Vaioleti, a former UH offensive lineman, resigned to spend more time running his construction company, Real Builders.
Donovan is a former UH football player, graduate-assistant coach and associate athletic director.
"I think he's a marvelous fit," said Jim Leahey, K5's play-by-play announcer. "He's played the game. He's helped run the UH athletic program for years. He knows the NCAA rules. He knows the TV rules. And he runs a bowl game, for goodness sake. You talk about a qualified person. He might be over-qualified for this job."
K5 is arranging for Donovan to join the broadcast crew for UH's Sept. 23 road game against Boise State.
