Doug Christie joins Kings’ shows on Comcast broadcasts

Former Kings guard Doug Christie, who played 15 NBA seasons, has joined Comcast SportsNet California as an analyst for the team’s pregame and postgame shows.

Christie will team with returning anchor Guy Haberman and analyst Bobby Jackson, another former Kings guard.

The longtime broadcast team of Grant Napear and Jerry Reynolds will return for CSN California’s 80 regular-season games and the Oct. 8 preseason game against the San Antonio Spurs. Kayte Christensen also will return as sideline reporter.

James Ham, who has covered the Kings for the Cowbell Kingdom blog for five years, has been hired to be CSN California’s “Kings Insider.”
