Sports media apology of the new week


From the Southern California Sportscasters group, regarding their nominations for the 2008 awards ceremony that takes place Jan. 26 at Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake (the list of candidates which we revealed recently, linked here):

Los Angeles, Jan. 12, 2009

Corrections in the Jan. 11 SCSB press release reporting nominations for 2008 SCSB Sportscaster Awards:

In the category Television Play-by-Play, Vin Scully is with KCAL (not KCOP)
In the category Television Color Analyst, Rex Hudler is with KCOP (not KCAL)
In the category Radio Anchor staff, Ted Sobel was misidentified as “Rick.”

We caught that on the release sent to us on Jan. 6, and posted our corrections. However, it was still sent out to other media members on Jan. 11 with the mistakes still included. We changed the original release that we had as far as changing “Rick” Sobel’s name to Ted, then moved on to bigger problems…
