LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced their 2015 broadcast teams. Hall of Famer Vin Scully will return on SportsNet LA and Dodgers Radio AM570 KLAC while Charley Steiner joins Rick Monday on AM570 KLAC and works with Orel Hershiser and Nomar Garciaparra on SNLA games in which Scully does not appear. Kevin Kennedy will be the analyst and Monday the play-by-play man on AM570 KLAC when Steiner moves into the TV booth.

 

In a first for Spanish-language baseball broadcasts, Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrín will be joined by his son, Jorge, on Univision America 1020 (KTNQ). All games broadcast on SNLA in English will also be presented in Spanish with Pepe Yñiguez and Fernando Valenzuela. Manny Mota will contribute to both the Dodgers' Spanish radio and TV broadcasts.

 

SNLA will have Scully calling games for the second consecutive season and its signature live daily studio show "Access SportsNet: Dodgers" will once again feature Garciaparra, John Hartung, Hershiser, Jerry Hairston Jr., Alanna Rizzo and Steiner. SNLA's 2015 complete programming coverage for spring training and the regular season will be announced in the near future.

Former Dodger outfielder Monday is entering his 23nd season as a Dodger broadcaster and enters his 31st season overall with the organization. Four-time Emmy Award winner Steiner will start his 11th season as play-by-play announcer for the Dodgers.

AM570 KLAC has broadcast rights of the Dodgers' regular-season games, select Spring Training games and potential postseason games.

 

Jaime Jarrín will enter his 57th season in the Dodgers' Spanish-language radio booth alongside son Jorge, who will be new to the broadcast. Jorge previously called games in Spanish on television for three years, including SNLA's inaugural season. Valenzuela, a 17-year Major League veteran, will enter his 13th season as a Dodger broadcaster and will now call games on SNLA in Spanish alongside Yñiguez who will begin his 17th season as a Dodger broadcaster.
