Mike Lamb, Grant Napear's Radio Partner, No Longer at KHTK

New, comments

KHTK 1140 AM, the radio home of the Kings, has parted ways with host Mike Lamb, who shared drive-time duties with Kings TV play-by-play announcer Grant Napear on the station's Sportsline 1140 show.

Was I a fan of Lamb's style? No. Was I a fan of Lamb's "soft" treatment of Napear's most vainglorious dissertations on sports? No. Was I a fan of Lamb's persistent need to turn every statement into a question? Obviously not. But I never wish a loss of a job on anyone, not even Napear. So this is bad news. That it comes from cost-cutting at the only local station actually devoted to local sports is a real bummer. That the same station recently paid big money to a midday host (Don Geronimo) who, while incredibly talented, doesn't give two damns about local sports is unfortunate.

It looks like Napear will be without a co-host, and that the wonderful Jason Ross will fill in when Grant's on the road. Ross isn't a classic talk radio jockey, but he knows his stuff and is a fair dude, which is a lot more than Napear can say.
