Former Peoria TV sportscaster lands international basketball job

PEORIA — Lee Hall has taken his broadcasting career international over the last three months without even leaving his living room.

The former WEEK-TV sportscaster picked up a temporary gig doing virtual play-by-play broadcasts for professional basketball leagues in Italy and Puerto Rico.

He worked one for the Lega Basket Serie A, Italy’s highest-level league. And he worked four games as the voice of Grises De Humacao in Puerto Rico’s top pro circuit, Baloncesto Superior Nacional — scattered over April, May and early June.

“They were virtual broadcasts, I did them from my living room,” said Hall, 59. “There were former NBA first-round picks and ex-NBA players all over those Puerto Rico rosters. A lot of talent in both leagues, and a lot of fun to do it.”
