During the Dodgers game there are a few ways to listen to the game. You can go to the ESPN Sportsnet website, listen to AM 570 LA Sports, or listen to Univision Radio KTNQ 1020 AM. You can listen to all three if you really want to catch the action.
During his 58-year career, Spanish-language broadcaster Jaime Jarrin was a defining figure in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ growing Latino fan base. Jarrin was honored during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in July.
Born in Ecuador, Jarrin came to the United States in 1955. His first job was working for the KWKW radio station in Los Angeles. He was only 16 years old when he got his first job.
In 1958, KWKW radio station entered a partnership with the Dodgers to broadcast games in Spanish. This was the first time a major league franchise had tried to broadcast games in Spanish.
As the Dodgers’ Spanish-language broadcaster, Jarrin stayed with the team for the next six years. He called the team’s first World Series win in 1959, and called the next two World Series wins in 1960 and 1980.
Those who follow the Dodgers know that Charley Steiner has called the Los Angeles Dodgers games on radio for the last sixteen seasons. He recently announced that he will call all home games in California this season, but he will also continue calling games from the road in Arizona.
As a Dodger, Charley Steiner has called a few big games. He called Aaron Boone’s walk-off home run in Game 7 of the 2003 American League Championship Series and was part of the broadcast team that called the Dodgers’ win in the World Series in 2020.
Charley Steiner is the voice of Dodgers baseball on radio, but he has also been a sportscaster for many years. He has worked with several radio stations in New York. He also worked as a newscaster for WIRL in Peoria and WPOP in Hartford. He also worked for the New York Jets for two years. He has been inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.
Throughout the decades, Vin Scully has been the voice of the Dodgers on radio. In his 67 years on the job, he called 25 World Series, 21 no-hitters, and 12 All-Star Games.
Scully was born in the Bronx on November 27, 1927. He was a student broadcaster at Fordham University, where he earned a degree in journalism. After graduation, he was hired as a radio and television announcer for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was a part of the organization’s transition from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958.
Scully’s voice is warm and old-country lyrical, but he is also operatic in the way he catches home run balls and introduces new players. Scully’s love of baseball was sparked by a World Series loss by the Giants 80 years ago.
AM 570 LA Sports
iHeartMedia Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Dodgers have announced a deal to relaunch KLAC-AM as AM 570 LA Sports, a new Los Angeles radio station. The new station will feature Dodgers’ games and other major sporting events on a variety of frequencies. The station will be owned by iHeartMedia, which is also the owner of Real 92.3, 104.3 MYfm, 102.7 KIIS FM and ALT 987.
During the off-season, the Dodgers made a number of interesting additions to their broadcast team, including Olympic gold medalist Jessica Mendoza. Mendoza, who resides in South Pasadena with her husband, is part of a group of ESPN baseball broadcasters that are contributing to the Dodgers’ Latino marketing efforts. She will also join a slew of other ESPN broadcasters, including a couple of former Dodgers.
Univision Radio KTNQ 1020 AM
Earlier this month, Los Angeles Dodgers owner Mark Davis announced a new partnership with Univision Communications to air the team’s games on KTNQ 1020 AM. The three-year agreement covers the radio broadcast rights to the Dodgers’ games through the 2018 season.
The agreement marks the beginning of a new generation for Dodger baseball. Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin will join his son Jorge in the broadcast booth for his third season. The two are the only father-son broadcasting team in MLB’s Spanish-language radio.
In addition to the radio broadcast, Univision will provide a wide range of media support for Dodger promotional programs. The company also announced that it will support digital platforms such as social media and mobile.
Univision’s Spanish-language flagship station, KTNQ, will broadcast every regular season game in the Los Angeles market. The station will also air eight spring training games each year and three MLB playoff games.
