Many have asked recently about Joe McDonnell’s future in the sports-talk biz. We’re working on it. We just talked to Joe as he was driving out to Arizona to take in tomorrow’s Lakers-Suns game in Phoenix — a small vacation to get away for awhile.
While Arte Moreno-owned KLAA-AM (830) (linked here) has yet to hire McDonnell as a weekday sports talk host — it’s been two months since McDonnell did his last show for KLAC-AM (570) and it would seem to be a natural move to 830, which keeps running colon-cleansing informercials during the day — the station has announced one addition.
“The Dr. Casey Show” starts Saturday (9 to 10 p.m.) and Sunday (2 to 3 p.m.).
Dr. Casey Cooper (www.drcaseycooper.com) is a state-licensed psychologist from USC specializing in sports culture. She maintains a private practice in Mission Viejo and assists individual athletes, families, and teams.
Working at a sports-talk show would seem to be a good place for a sports shrink. Just lie on the couch and tell us why you can’t stop hitting the redial on your phone, Jeff from Tarzana.
