LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION: The Hornets on Monday announced that play-by-play announcer Joel Meyers, color analyst David Wesley and sideline reporter Jennifer Hale have signed on as the team's FS New Orleans broadcast crew starting with the ’12-13 season. Meyers served as TV play-by-play announcer for the Lakers from ’05-'11. The Hornets and Fox announced a long term TV rights agreement in June (Hornets). The TIMES-PICAYUNE’s Reid noted Wesley joins the broadcast team “after serving as an assistant coach” for the NBA D-League Texas Legends for the past two seasons. Hale has spent the last three years at WVUE-Fox and also "is a sideline reporter for the NFL on Fox” (NOLA.com, 8/6).
