If you’ve been to a Lakers’ game in the last 28 years you’ve heard the voice of Lawrence Tanter on the public address system welcoming the crowd and announcing the lineups for both teams.
Tanter has signed a new two-year contract.
“That will make 30 years and I’m extremely proud of that,” he said.
Tanter has also been a radio disc jockey best known for his appreciation of jazz. He was on the air for many years on The Wave when it operated in Culver City. He has also been a regular on the Lakers’ pre-game and halftime shows with Jim Hill and James Worthy.
