News on the local sports talk scene. Lee "Hacksaw" Hamilton, who moved to XTRA Sports (570 AM) when it subsumed what used to be the Tijuana-based "Mighty 690," has lost his daily radio show after nineteen years. Instead he'll do weekend shows, feed comentaries through the day and read headlines on his former show, which will now be hosted by Joe Grande and Matt Smith. Here's a Times story and a comment by Brooks Melchior.
Also: The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports the death of its former columnist Bud Tucker, who also used to host sports talk on KABC.
