Dodgers Announce 2013 Broadcast Schedule

From the Dodgers -

The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced their 2013 regular season broadcast schedule, which includes nearly all 162 games televised on either PRIME TICKET or KCAL 9.  National and regional telecasts on FOX, ESPN, MLB Network and TBS will complete the schedule. On the radio, fans can listen to all games on Dodgers Radio AM 570 Fox Sports Los Angeles and in Spanish on Univision Radio’s KTNQ 1020.

The Dodgers begin the season on PRIME TICKET on Monday, April 1, as they play the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. Game time is set for 1:10 p.m. In addition, the rivalry game will also be part of ESPN’s Opening Day quadruple-header. 

National telecasts for the Dodgers this season include ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball on May 5 vs. the Giants in San Francisco and eight Saturday games on FOX. FOX telecasts include May 25 vs. St.  Louis, June 22 at San Diego, July 6 at San Francisco, July 13 vs. Colorado, Aug. 3 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, Aug. 10 vs. Tampa Bay, Aug. 24 vs. Boston and Sept. 7 at Cincinnati. ESPN, FOX, MLB Network and TBS will select additional games for regional and national broadcasts throughout the season.

Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully, entering an unprecedented 64th season as the “Voice of the Dodgers,” will call nearly every Dodger home and road telecast in California and Arizona. The first three innings of each of the games Scully calls will be simulcast on the radio. Scully’s 63 years of service constitute the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history.

For all other road games, the broadcast booth will be manned by former Major Leaguer Steve Lyons, who is returning for his ninth season as an analyst on Dodger telecasts, and Eric Collins, who is entering his fifth season calling Dodger baseball.

The Dodgers’ English-language radio broadcast will be led by the award-winning team of Rick Monday and Charley Steiner. Monday begins his 21st season as a Dodger broadcaster and 29th overall with the organization, including eight as a player. Steiner enters his ninth season as a play-by-play announcer for the team.

Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrín, Pepe Yñiguez and legendary Dodger pitcher Fernando Valenzuela will call the action in Spanish for the Dodgers. Jarrín enters his 55th season in the Dodgers’ Spanish-language radio booth and Yñiguez will begin his 15th. Valenzuela enters his 11th season calling games for the Dodgers after a 17-year playing career.

PRIME TICKET enters its 17th season as a telecast partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Dodger season coverage on PRIME TICKET in 2013 will again feature “Dodgers Live” pre- and post-game shows at home and on the road led by Patrick O’Neal and Jim Watson rotating at the host position, while Steve Lyons provides analysis. PRIME TICKET and sister network FOX Sports West have provided local sports coverage to Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii for nearly 30 years.

KCAL 9 is in its eighth season as the over-the-air broadcast home of the Dodgers and their Dodger gameday coverage will include the station’s THINK BLUE TV pre-game show with sports anchor Gary Miller, former Dodger Eric Karros and sports reporter/anchor Kristine Leahy. KCAL 9 and sister station CBS 2 also provides comprehensive year-round Dodger coverage on its nightly sports show, Sports Central.

Dodgers Radio AM 570 Fox Sports Los Angeles is entering its second year as the Dodgers’ flagship radio station. AM 570 will broadcast all 162 regular season games as well as post-game Dodger Talk. This season, Dodger broadcaster Jorge Jarrín will join Kevin Kennedy and David Vassegh on the popular call-in show.

Dodger games this season will be available in Spanish on Univision Radio KTNQ 1020AM for the third consecutive season.
