Joey Lamar is more than excited to be the KX Sports Director. He eats, sleeps and breathes sports and his passion for local sports is second to none. Joey believes local sports are more than just highlights, they are the stories behind them.
Before joining KXMB, Joey was the weekday sports anchor for WFXL in Albany, GA. Aside from anchoring five days a week, he also managed the department — his first job out of college. After leaving Albany, he spent time as anchor/reporter for KFBB servicing the Great Falls and Helena area. Before starting his career, he interned at USA Track & Field, WLFI-News 18, West Lafayette and WRTV, Indianapolis.
Joey attended Clark Atlanta University where he obtained a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Accounting. He later graduated from Indiana University at Indianapolis in Dec. 2013 with a second master’s degree in Sports Journalism.
He looks forward to bringing a fresh perspective to local sports through his passion and commitment.
Feel free to reach out to him on twitter. He loves talking about…well actually, debating sports.
