Did Kostis just say that if Strikler hits the wrong ball out of a hazard "that's not a problem"? The other announcer immediately talked over him.

If he did, then he was wrong. Used to be that way but not any more.
To answer the thread title, no I don't. In fact I'm more likely to assume that he's wrong because they seem to miss more than they hit.
An announcer first must know the rule, and second must be able to explain it coherently.
If it's an oddball situation, a decent announcer would say he's "waiting for the ruling," or "checking on it."
Ideally, a broadcast team would have at least one member who recently had gone through rules training. I don't know if this is policy or not.
