Next VOTC: Lockhart or Bartl?
Different outlets are reporting different names, but one thing seems certain: the next voice of the Syracuse Crunch will come from the other side of the country. 

The Bakersfield Condors of the ECHL say they have an opening in their broadcast booth, which has Crunch beat writer Lindsay Kramer wondering if current junior Condors announcer Jason Lockhart is headed to Syracuse.  Soon after Kramer's post on, CHGA cited an anonymous source stating that Bakersfield senior announcer Kevin Bartl was headed this way instead and that Lockhart's position was only open because Lockhart would move up and take Bartl's role with the Condors.

However, moments ago Kramer updated his post with the following:

"A few hours after posting the entry below, I finally got ahold of Kevin Bartl, Bakerfield's No. 1 radio guy and Jason's boss. He would not confirm the info below but he said Jason's last day with the Condors is Wednesday. He also said any further announcement should come from Syracuse."
CHGA then responded with this:

"Boo. Apparently we are “probably” getting the less experienced guy in the Condors’ organization, Jason Lockhart. One source of mine jumped to conclusions after misinterpreting what another said. Or something. [...]

See, kids, always check your facts before posting anything :p."
