Change for Mavericks radio

Alex Freedman, who had been the Mavericks broadcaster for the last several seasons, will not be broadcasting games for the 2011 season for the team.

The new owners of the Mavericks have apparently changed the position, effictively eliminating a fulltime broadcaster.

Freedman had originally served as the Mavericks’ No. 2 broadcaster under Jon Rosen beginning in the 2007 season, then succeeded Rosen when Rosen left for other opportunities  I believe for the 2008 season.

Freedman writes that William Calvert, who had broadcast games for Bakersfield and Lancaster in the last couple of years, will broadcast weekend Mavericks home and commuter games on the internet for the 2011 season.
