Rex Hudler, Steve Physioc Join Royals TV Team

We had a hunch that Rex Hudler was a favorite to join the vacated spot in Royals TV broadcasts, but the team announced today that Steve Physioc, Hudler’s partner in the booth for Angels broadcasts, will also join the broadcast crew.

According to Fox Sports Kansas City, the pregame duo of Joel Goldberg and Jeff Montgomery will remain in place, while the team’s 140 television broadcasts will be split with Ryan Lefebvre calling 90 games as the play by play announcer and Physioc covering the other 50. The color commentary/analyst role will be filled by Hudler for 120 games while Montgomery fills in the other 20. The announcement also states that Lefebvre and Physioc will do radio broadcasts as well.

After the 2011 season, Ryan Lefebvre had interviewed for the Twins radio position, so Physioc’s hiring may have been partly due to some interest to involve Lefebvre on the radio side more frequently.

Both Physioc and Hudler are high energy guys, though some Angels fans weren’t that impressed with their performance. Both were dropped from the Angels TV crew after the 2009 season.

    Noooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! Dos bobbos man!

    I’ve seen too many Angeles of Everywhere games with these guys. No one will confuse Frank and Rex as far as excitement is concerned. That is a given. The kiddies and us adults still playing will miss the quality of the advise on fundamentals. When they do make their way into a Hudler broadcast, fundamentals are not only lacking in quality, but also pedigree. Game in and game out, the Phux broadcast team’s information about the opposition is stale at best.

    Thanks Fox Sports. Leave KC’s championship pedigree in Anaheim of Everewhere and saddle us with the Angels refuse!

    We love and miss Steve and Rex in California. Most of the Angel fans were unhappy that they let them go. Royal fans are getting two great guys.

     @Danone They’re both lame.
