NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Hornets say they've signed a multi-year deal with Entercom Communications to broadcast all Hornets games live on WWL radio, beginning with the upcoming 2012-13 season.

The broadcast team is anchored by Sean Kelley, who will begin his eighth season as the team's play-by-play voice. He will be joined by John DeShazier (dih'-SHAY-zer) as he begins his first season as color analyst. DeShazier joins the broadcast team after working on the New Orleans Times-Picayune's sports staff since 1992 as the newspaper's primary columnist on the team and NBA related matters.

Chris Claus, general manager of Entercom New Orleans, says they can't wait to deliver Hornets basketball to its listeners. The broadcasts begin Halloween night, when the Hornets take on San Antonio.
