Broadcasters[edit]

Red Barber was the Dodgers original broadcaster, calling Brooklyn Dodgers games on the radio (and later TV) from 1939-1953.

Vin Scully has called Dodgers games since 1950.[1] His longtime partners were Jerry Doggett (1956–1987) and Ross Porter (1977–2004).[1] In 1976, he was selected by Dodgers fans as the Most Memorable Personality (on the field or off) in the team's history. He is also a recipient of the Baseball Hall of Fame's Ford C. Frick Award for broadcasters (inducted in 1982). He currently is in his 65th year with the team. Unlike the modern style in which multiple sportscasters have an on-air conversation (usually with one functioning as play-by-play announcer and the other(s) as color commentator), Scully, Doggett and Porter generally called games solo, trading with each other inning-by-inning. In the 1980s and early 1990s, Scully would call the radio broadcast except for the 3rd and 7th inning; allowing the other Dodger commentators to broadcast an inning. In the later 90s, Scully would call the first three innings and the last three on television and the middle three on the radio, switching off with his partners.

When Doggett retired after the 1987 season, he was replaced by Hall-of-Fame Dodgers pitcher Don Drysdale, who previously broadcast games for the California Angels.[1] Drysdale died in his hotel room following a heart attack before a game in 1993, resulting in a very difficult broadcast for Scully and Porter, who were told of the death but could not mention it on-air until Drysdale's family had been notified and the official announcement of the death made.[2] He was replaced by former Dodgers outfielder Rick Monday.[1] Porter's tenure was terminated somewhat controversially after the 2004 season, after which the current format of play-by-play announcers and color commentators was installed, led by newcomer Charley Steiner and Monday.[1] Scully, however, continues to announce solo.

Scully calls roughly 100 games per season (all home games and road games in California and Arizona)[3] for both radio and television. Scully is simulcast for the first three innings of each of his appearances, then announces the remaining innings only for the TV audience. If Scully is calling the game, Charley Steiner takes over play-by-play on radio beginning with the fourth inning, with Rick Monday as color commentator.[3] If Scully is not calling the game, an alternate team of broadcasters (Steinner and Steve Lyons from 2005-2008), Lyons and Eric Collins from 2009-2013 and Steiner and Orel Hershiser starting in 2014) call the entire game on television while Steiner and Monday do the same on radio. Starting in 2014, Nomar Garciaparra teams with Monday on the radio for most of the games that Steiner calls on television. Occasionally Garciaparra will join Steiner and Hershiser to form a three-man television crew; for those games, Kevin Kennedy works with Monday on radio.

In the event the Dodgers are in post-season play, Scully calls the first three and last three innings of the radio broadcast alone; with Charley Steiner and Rick Monday handling the middle innings.

The Dodgers also broadcast on radio in Spanish, and the play-by-play is handled by another Ford C. Frick Award winner, Jaime Jarrín. Jarrin has been with the Dodgers since 1959. The color analyst for some games is former Dodger pitcher Fernando Valenzuela, for whom Jarrin once translated post-game interviews. The Spanish-language flagship is KTNQ.

The Dodgers also broadcast games in Korean, with all games broadcast in Korean on a second audio program on television, with selected games broadcast on KMPC Radio Korea. Richard Choi does play-by-play with Chong Ho Yim the color commentator.

On January 22, 2014, the Dodgers and SportsNet LA officially announced the main talent for their network. Scully will continue to handle the announcing duties for all Dodger homegames and road games in California and Arizona. The rest of the road games will be announced by Charley Steiner (play-by-play) and Orel Hershiser (color commentary) with Alanna Rizzo as a field reporter. Rizzo, formerly of the MLB Network, will also host the pre-and post-game show from Dodger Stadium. Former baseball players Nomar Garciaparra and Jerry Hairston, Jr. (as well as Hershiser on days he isn't announcing) will be part of the pre and post game broadcasts. Former KABC-TV anchor John Hartung will be the in-studio host for the SportsNet LA programming. Steiner and Monday will remain the radio team on days Scully is announcing, but when Steiner moves over to TV, Monday will be joined by Garciaparra.[4]

Broadcast outlets[edit]

From 2006-2013, the over-the-air games were aired on KCAL-TV (Channel 9) after the two parties signed a multi-year, multi-million dollar deal in 2005, and they aired 50 games per season. The previous over-the-air television homes for the Dodgers were KCOP-TV (Channel 13) from 2002-2005, KTLA-TV (Channel 5) from 1993-2001, and KTTV (Channel 11) from 1958-1992. In their New York days, WOR (Channel 9, now WWOR-TV) carried Dodgers games from 1951 until their move following the season of 1957. The cable television home of the Dodgers was Fox Sports Net Prime Ticket (previously known as Fox Sports Net West 2) from 1997-2013.

Starting in the late 1970s through the early 1990s, the Dodgers put a small number of their home games on a subscription/pay-per-view service appropriately carried Dodgervision. During that timeframe, in addition to the road telecasts from KTTV, selected home games were also televised on the ONTV subscription service, the now-defunct Z Channel/SportsChannel Los Angeles network, and then again, on a pay-per-view basis until a majority of Dodgers games debuted on the then-new Fox Sports Net West 2 in 1997, just around the same time FSN West 2's parent company, News Corporation (also owner of KTTV) bought the team from the O'Malley family. In relation to News Corp's purchase of the Dodgers, there was speculation that the Dodgers over-the-air telecasts would return to KTTV, but they were still under contract to KTLA. KTLA's contract with the Dodgers ended in 2001, and the over-the-air telecasts then moved to KTTV's now-sister station, KCOP, with the production handled by FSN West 2.

On radio, the Dodgers have broadcast on KLAC (570 AM) since 2012. In October 2011 the team signed a three-year deal with KLAC parent company Clear Channel Communications. KABC (790 AM) was the Dodgers' flagship station from 1973 through 1997 and from 2008 through 2011. The games had aired on KFWB (980 AM) from 2002 through 2007. Other station to carry the Dodgers included KXTA (1150 AM; now KEIB), which was a sports-talk station, from 1998 through 2001. KFI (640 AM) was the radio flagship from 1961 to 1972. And previous to that, KMPC (710 AM, now KSPN) was the original flagship radio station in Los Angeles of the vast Dodgers Radio Network, which is carried on 16 stations in five states (California, Nevada, New Mexico, Hawaii, Florida, plus the U.S. Virgin Islands). Their Spanish radio network was led by KHJ which took over in 2008 from longtime home KWKW (1330 AM), with Jarrin, Pepe Yñiguez, and former Dodger great Fernando Valenzuela on the call, and was carried on six stations in California, Nevada, and Arizona. In 2011 Spanish-language Dodger broadcasts returned to KTNQ, the station that carried the games from 1979 to 1986.

Scully normally does all nine innings (plus extra innings if necessary) on locally televised games, with the first three innings being simulcast on radio, while Steiner and Monday take over in the final innings on radio. However, Scully's current schedule calls for him to work only the home and road games within the National League Western division, except Colorado, and any West Coast interleague contests within the American League West, as he decided in recent years to cut back on his schedule.

Fox Sports West's broadcast deal with the team expired at the end of the 2013 MLB season. On June 20, 2011, MLB Commissioner Bud Selig rejected a proposed contract extension between the Dodgers and Fox, stating "Critically, the transaction is structured to facilitate the further diversion of Dodgers assets for the personal needs of Mr. McCourt. Given the magnitude of the transaction, such a diversion of assets would have the effect of mortgaging the future of the franchise to the long-term detriment of the club and its fans." [5] Both Fox Sports West and the Dodgers were involved in separate lawsuits over the team's broadcast rights as well as the sale of the club.[6][7] On January 10, 2012, Fox and the Dodgers reached a settlement in court, clearing the way for the sale of the team.[8] Fox's exclusive negotiating period with the Dodgers expired on November 30, 2012: both sides were in discussions over a TV deal worth $6 billion over 25 years. The team was also in talks to move to the newly formed Time Warner Cable SportsNet, or to form a team-owned regional sports network with Dick Clark Productions (which was also recently acquired by the Dodgers' parent company, Guggenheim Partners).[9]

On January 28, 2013, The Dodgers announced that starting in 2014, the team will have a new exclusive television deal with Time Warner Cable and will be airing games on a new team-controlled cable channel to be known as SportsNet LA. This would also mean the end of over-the-air broadcast of the teams games, for the first time since 1949.[10]
