Randy Kerdoon brings you twice an hour sports updates, weekday mornings through early afternoon on KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO.
Randy knew he was destined for a sports career OFF the court while at Woodland Hills-El Camino Real High he became the 13th man on a JV basketball team with 12 uniforms; and ended up at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo’s KCPR where he earned, appropriately enough, a “BS” degree in Journalism.
His “road to KNX” included radio stops at the old 1260-KGIL in San Fernando, where during a team softball practice traffic maven Miss Pamela once threw a ball, hitting him in a spot “Sweet” Dick Whittington later commented, “you ruined him.” (I guess that explains the voice.)
Randy was the radio voice of the Salt Lake Golden Eagle Hockey team and the baseball Salt Lake Trappers (part-owned by current Angel owner Arte Moreno), who won a baseball record 29 games in a row in 1987 (he’s in the team picture at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown); TV voice of Weber State football; and worked on pre-game broadcasts for the NBA’s Utah Jazz.
Randy returned to LA in 1988, for a brief stint at KWNK radio, located above “Hot Dog on a Stick” in the old Fallbrook Mall where he pioneered their “Don’t call us…we’ll call you” segment. He joined KFWB in 1989 and was the morning sports anchor until 1995.
Randy worked at Fox-11 News from 1993 to 2002, developing his popular “K-Files” and “Sports Around the World” features. After a brief stay at the Fox Sports Radio Network, Randy became KNX’s full time morning sportscaster in 2004.
Over his career, Randy has been honored with 10 Golden Mike’s including Best Sports Reporting and Best Radio Sportscast honors and 5 AP Mark Twain awards and 3 L.A. Press Club awards for excellence. While at Fox-11, Randy won a best sports reporting Emmy and was nominated for a second.
Randy also loves the world of classic cars, and loves to travel to Scottsdale, Arizona to cover the various collector car auctions that go on, and file reports for KNX.

With all the talk of Farmers Field alongside Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, a certain group of football fans believe the time is ripe for the Rams to leave St. Louis and head back to the City of Angels.
