UPDATE: It looks like Spero isn’t leaving afterall. TLN’s own Kam Pashai spoke with him after this report:
Just talked to Spero regarding reports that he’ll be working with CBS’s NFL team next season. To clear things up, Spero will only be doing a few regular season NFL games in September — that is before the NBA season begins in October. It won’t conflict with his Lakers broadcasting schedule. – Kam
OCRegister: Bad news for Lakers radio listeners.
Spero Dedes, radio voice of the Lakers for the past five seasons, reportedly has taken a job as an NFL TV play-by-play announcer with CBS Sports. Dedes is expected to replaced departed Hall of Fame voice Dick Enberg on its NFL coverage.
Dedes hosted “NFL GameDay Morning” pregame coverage for NFL Network with Michael Irvin, Warren Sapp and others during the 2009 football season and joined the CBS Sports last December when he helped with its NCAA coverage.
