LEAVING HIS POST: In Oklahoma City, Darnell Mayberry reports Thunder TV color analyst Grant Long has “resigned his position and will not return” to FS Oklahoma for the ‘14-15 season. Long held the position alongside play-by-play announcer Brian Davis "since the team moved” from Seattle to Oklahoma City in ‘08. KOKH-TV earlier this month reported that Long "had deep financial troubles" (OKLAHOMAN, 7/22).
RADIO FLYERS: In California, Elliott Teaford notes the NHL Kings yesterday formally announced "a change in radio stations," making KABC-AM the team's new flagship station. Nick Nickson and Daryl Evans will "continue to provide commentary" on all games, but there will be a "partnership between the Cumulus-owned station and the team that includes new exclusive events plus digital content available for fans" (Torrance DAILY BREEZE, 7/22). Meanwhile, in Ottawa, Wayne Scanlan reports for “at least the next three years,” CJFO-FM will “continue its French broadcast” of Senators games. Nicolas St-Pierre “remains the station’s play-by-play voice alongside analyst Alain Sanscartier” (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 7/22).
WHO DAT? Former Springfield Republican Patriots reporter Nick Underhill “will begin reporting on the Saints” for the paper this week when they open training camp at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia (THENEWORLEANSADVOCATE.com, 7/22).
