As previously mentioned in Gary Washburn's blog at the PI, David Locke has relocated to Salt Lake City, taking over the pre- and post-game Jazz shows as well as hosting a sports radio show on KJZZ (and, yes, I agree that KJZZ sounds like something you'd by at a sex shop for $7.99).
Here's Locke's take on returning to SLC, including paying homage to the wonderful Jazz franchise.
You know, if I was running the Sonics, I think my first two questions to potential broadcasters would be:
1. Do you now or have you ever before rooted for the Portland Trail Blazers?
2. Do you now or have you ever before rooted for the Utah Jazz?
A yes to either question would be grounds for a non-hire, at least to me.
I can't trust anyone who would rather live in SLC than Seattle.
Despite the fact that I'd never want to live in Utah, I'm happy for David Locke.
First off I lived in Salt Lake for many years and I currently live in Southern utah. SLC is a fine city to live in and David Locke loves SLC as much as Seattle. Locke will be loved in Utah and my brother is actually a producer for 1320 KFAN and will be working with Locke. I am looking forward to talking with Locke soon and talking a little basketball. Remember that Locke would prefer to still be in Seattle but that was not his choice so he will settle for Salt Lake and do a great job of covering the Jazz.
