Citadel’s KABC-AM Los Angeles has reclaimed the role of radio home of the LA Dodgers, which have been on CBS’ KFWB-AM since 2003 and last on KABC in 1997. Under the new deal taking effect next month, KABC will carry play-by-play, pre- and post-game shows and a new weekly talk show for baseball fans.
"This is a grand-slam homerun for KABC listeners and advertisers," said John Davison, President and General Manager of KABC-AM & KLOS-FM.
In addition to having the English-language rights to broadcast all 162 regular-season games and 15 Spring Training games, the KABC station will partner with the Dodgers on a fully-integrated marketing campaign, promoting the team on sister station KLOS-FM and in an outdoor advertising campaign.
Pictured at the announcement in LA are Dodgers owner Frank H. McCourt Jr.; Davison; Jamie McCourt, Vice Chairman and President/LA Dodgers; Vin Scully, Broadcaster and Voice of the LA Dodgers; and Matt Mallon, KABC General Sales Manager.
