All 162 regular season Dodger games will be televised in 2013, with the bulk of the games available on Prime Ticket or KCAL 9. Fox, ESPN, TBS, and MLB Network will pick up the remaining games not televised by the two networks.
The home opener against the Giants on April 1 will be shown on Prime Ticket and is part of ESPN’s Opening Day quadruple-header.
National telecasts of Dodger games already on the docket include eight Saturday games on Fox, and a May 5 contest that will be on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball. ESPN, Fox, TBS, and MLB Network will select additional games for regional and national broadcasts throughout the year.
Every Dodger home game will be called by Vin Scully who will also travel to in-state road contests and games in Arizona. In 2012, the Hall of Fame broadcaster completed his 63rd year with the team, the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history.
All other road games will be called by Steve Lyons and Eric Collins.
Patrick O’Neal and Jim Watson will rotate as host on Prime Ticket’s pre- and post-game shows while Lyons will provide analysis.
For games televised on KCAL 9, Gary Miller, Eric Karros, and Kristine Leahy will take care of the Think Blue pre-game show.
On the radio side, Rick Monday and Charley Steiner will call the action. Monday begins his 29th season with the Dodgers – eight as a player – while Steiner starts his ninth season as play-by-play announcer for Los Angeles. Listeners can tune to AM 570 Fox Sports Los Angeles to hear the games. Dodger Talk, the post-game show call-in show will feature Jorge Jarrin, Kevin Kennedy, and David Vassegh.
The Spanish-language broadcasting crew remains intact for the 2013 season. Pepe Yniguez, former pitcher Fernando Valenzuela, and Hall of Fame announcer Jaime Jarrin will call the action. Together they have 95 years experience with the Dodgers.
