Bob Miller is recovering from the virus commonly known as shingles and will not be a part of the broadcasts for the Kings’ next two games, tomorrow night at Staples Center and Wednesday at Chicago (FSN is not televising Friday’s game at Dallas). Television duties will be handled by Nick Nickson and Jim Fox, while Mike Kalinowski (the Kings’ manager for communications and public relations) and Daryl Evans will work the radio side. You might remember the Kalinowski-Evans tandem from a couple years ago, when Nick missed some games with a bad back.
It certainly was an interesting one last night. Obviously I didn’t get to see the broadcast, but Jim and Daryl deserve credit for stepping into unfamiliar roles and getting the job done. The biggest credit probably goes to Nick, for carrying me through an entire broadcast! It was a lot of fun, and it’s difficult to overstate how much work all of those guys put into making a broadcast work well. Continued best wishes to Bob for a speedy recovery.
