Sports: Wheels Rolls to L.A.?
Wheeler, who hosted "Wheels After Work" on KHTK-1140 in the mid-90's, has been one of the broadcast voices of the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers for several seasons. He's among three finalists vying for the coveted Lakers radio job. Joel Meyers, who called the Lakers on KLAC and the Lakers radio network the last two years, will move to the television side this season on Fox Sports Net West and local Lakers TV outlet KCAL-9. He replaces the fired Paul Sunderland, who took over the job upon the death of legendary Lakers broadcaster Chick Hearn in 2001.
