Rich Hammond Hired by Orange County Register

When you’re a journalist working for a professional team that’s in the middle of a strike, it might be time to start thinking about your next career move.

Los Angeles Kings insider Rich Hammond did just that, accepting a position to cover USC athletics for The Orange County Register, ending his three-year run with the Stanley Cup champions.
