Tom Hoffarth from Los Angeles Daily News reports:
Joel Meyers, who has been doing play-by-play on Lakers games since 2003, the last six of those seasons on TV, has been told he will not have his contract renewed, according to several sources.
Meyers was added to the Lakers’ broadcast team on radio when Paul Sunderland, who came in after the passing of Chick Hearn , was moved to a TV-only play-by-play call, eliminating the simulcast. Spero Dedes was hired from the NBA TV channel as the radio play-by-play job at the time.
Joel Meyers and Stu Lantz just aren’t a great team. They put me to sleep when i’m watching the Lakers. Most of the time, I have no idea what they are even talking about.
