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.
