George Lopez Out As Host Of Bob Hope Chrysler Classic

Lopez No Longer Host Of
Bob Hope Chrysler Classic
Comedian George Lopez' two-year run as host of the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic "has come to an abrupt halt," after his name was removed from the tournament's Web site, according to Thomas Bonk of the L.A. TIMES. While there is no longer any mention of Lopez on the site, his "image is still used." Tournament President John Foster said that the tournament is a "couple of weeks away from announcing something different for next year." Foster: "We're trying to bring in a special guy out of the hat." Bonk writes that would probably be Arnold Palmer, who "would serve as the host for the 50th anniversary of the tournament." Foster said Lopez "will still be around, he'll still be a part of the tournament and hopefully play in the tournament." However, Lopez said whether he plays or not will "depend on [his] schedule" (L.A. TIMES, 3/13).
