LA Kings unveil broadcaster plans for Bob Miller's reduced schedule

BY foxsports • October 12, 2016

Hey Bob ... we've got your back!

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Kings announced four veteran play-by-play announcers who will work FOX Sports West broadcasts while Hall of Famer Bob Miller, who returns to the booth for his 44th season, reduces his on-air role.

Miller missed the Kings' final three months last season after undergoing quadruple by-pass heart surgery. He is scheduled to call 58 games (including all home games) this season plus the first-round of the playoffs.

Gary Thorne (eight games), Chris Cuthbert (four games), Ralph Strangis (four games) and Jiggs McDonald (one game) will work alongside of Jim Fox during the 2016-17 season.

McDonald served as the Kings' first broadcaster in 1967.
