Co-Host, Middays With Randy Cross – Weekdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Bio: Rick Kamla is a co-host on the Midday show, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. weekdays with Randy Cross. Rick got his first professional job in sports in 1994 as a writer for Fantasy Football Weekly. When that regional publication went national via Fanball.com in 1998, Rick was promoted to senior writer for fantasy football and basketball. His edgy writing caught the eye of NBA TV bosses, who hired Rick in January of 2003 to host “Virtual GM”, the first fantasy sports show in network television history. Rick is entering his 11th season with NBA TV and he still hosts “Fantasy Insider”, which is now the longest running fantasy TV show of all-time. Rick’s role with NBA TV has expanded to hosting the network’s flagship program “Gametime” as well as play-by-play for the NBA, WNBA, USA Basketball, D-League, Summer League and Euroleague.
