Joel Meyers Out as Lakers Television Broadcast Analyst

According to several sources close to the Lakers it appears that television broadcast analyst Joel Meyers will not have his contract renewed with the Los Angeles Lakers. Meyers has been with the Lakers since Paul Sunderland moved from radio to television following the departure of the legendary Chick Hearn.

Meyers has been teamed with Stu Lantz to create the Lakers play by play team, but it appears the team will be broken up at the end of the season. According to the source all the Lakers broadcast analysts will see their contract expire at the end of the season, but only some of them will be back. It appears that Meyers will not be back with the team in 2012.

Rumor has it that Los Angeles radio play by play analyst Spero Dedes will get the job. Dedes is one of the most popular up and coming broadcasters in the game, and has done the Lakers radio broadcasts for the past several seasons. Whether or not Dedes is given the job is yet to be seen, but many of the people familiar with the situation believe the job will eventually belong to Dedes.
