It’s a Ohio reporter who apparently was very close with LeBron I highly doubt a former-Cavs associate would go work for the Clippers.

From the article:

Quote:
It’s easy to connect the dots with Clifton’s move even if it isn’t known where exactly she’s headed. Clifton had a good relationship with LeBron James over the last four years and James now plays for the Lakers. Clifton could be joining the Lakers’ broadcast crew as someone familiar with LeBron or she could be moving to a role with James’ company Uninterrupted — which is the parent company of the Road Trippin’ podcast Clifton co-hosts with Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson.

I haven’t read anywhere that says she’s hosting the show I’ve just read that she’s “joining“ the show so you know they have a lot of talking heads on that show. They also used to have two female reporters on there so she might be taking that Jamie Maggio/Kellie Tenant-type role. And there’s that (tragic) “Lakeshow” Show that happens before and sometimes after the games as well. We shall see. I’ve seen her a few times on other broadcasts, she seems good.

So they're going back to the old format of where she'll "co-host" with McGee? That never seemed to work out well for the female co-hosts in the past: Jaime Maggio, Kelli Tennant, and Serena Winters. All ended up playing the Vanna White role on the show relegated to the media fluff parts like reading fan tweets.

We could have 3 hours of pre and post game shows this season with the Lebron hype, maybe we'll get 3 different hosts.

Someone pointed out that she'll be working for the Lakers and not Spectrum.
So no, she isn't replacing Geeter.

She's more likely replacing Trudell if they're moving him to a different role.

I wonder if Trudell would be willing to call the Laker games on the radio, he seems to have knowledge and can help the fans with game details.

Please don't get rid of Mike. He's the only guy on ESPN that knows current basketball.

They will be, just that I think people like Dave McMenamin and Allie Clifton had a close relationship with LeBron.

Trudell is great. One of the few LA guys without an anti Lakers bias.

I’ve also read several places that she’ll be doing the post & pre-game shows. I’m glad. Spectrum could use someone as talented as she is.

Hopefully they don't get rid of Mike he's probably the only analyst after James Worthy creating any useful value on the shows.

Fine if she's playing the Jamie Maggio/Kellie Tennant role and/or just doing her own thing for Brons programming.

It’s not a banned word, but it is rude.
You took an article about a reporter and turned it into an article about a chick.
Let’s all try to keep it just about basketball, as much as possible.

They can ax so many people from goofy Medina, to whispering Ganguli, uncomfortably Bres, etc. It would be comical, but not surprising, if Trudel is the guy they get rid of. Because it would be consistent with the moves this summer. Trading one solid, underappreciated, up and coming guy in Randle/Trudell for a ragtag group of characters.

There is a lot of room for improvement - on air, in studio and sideline.
Jeanie has to know.
