LA Kings Insider Moving On

I tweeted this last night...


Today, this from Rich Hammond of LA Kings Insider,

The most gratifying part about the past three years, from my perspective, has been the sense of community that has been built here. While we don’t always see eye to eye, we’re all motivated by a love for hockey and a desire to exchange information and opinions about the Kings. Even during the challenging times, I have immensely enjoyed being part of this online melting pot with you, which makes it tough to announce that this will be my last week with the Kings. I have decided that the timing and situation is right for me to move on, and I’m excited about the job opportunity I have in front of me. The decision is mine, and the Kings in no way pushed or encouraged me to leave. I faced no threat of layoff or of any financial cutback. It’s my choice, for a number of reasons, and I’m grateful that my parting with the Kings is amicable and that I will leave on good terms, both personally and professionally, with everyone involved.

I’ll let the Kings speak to their specific future plans, but I have offered to assist them in the transition in any way they see fit. Three years ago, I entered into a unique partnership with the organization, and I’m extremely proud of what we accomplished. I’m confident that the Kings see the value in what we accomplished and that they will maintain comprehensive coverage here.

Thanks, Rich.

Heidi Androl, the new Kings correspondent, perhaps?
