Lakers Hearn Signs New Deal

Los Angeles Lakers coaches and players and even the team owners have changed over the years, but the NBA team has had one constant for 34 years the voice in the broadcast booth.

Chick Hearn, 82, signed a new two-year contract Wednesday and will build on his amazing streak of having called 3,114 consecutive Lakers games.

Hearn is a member of both the Basketball Hall of Fame and the American Sportscasters Hall of Fame.
