Leitz tabbed as new Dodger Stadium PA announcer

A new voice will be booming from the Dodger Stadium speakers during the 2015 season.

The Dodgers announced on Friday that Todd Leitz will be the team's new public address announcer.

Leitz is a public information officer for MySafe:LA, a partner of the Los Angeles Fire Department and City of Los Angeles, and he spent 10 years with KNX 1070 NewsRadio as an anchor and news reporter. He also worked for two years as a news reporter at KABC 790.

"I couldn't be more thrilled and excited to be part of a world-class organization like the Los Angeles Dodgers," Leitz said. "I can't wait to start working with the crew that does such a great job making the Dodger Stadium experience second to none for the best baseball fans in the world."

Leitz will begin his new role on Saturday, when the Dodgers host the Angels in the final Freeway Series exhibition game at 6:10 p.m. PT.

"Todd is a terrific broadcaster and a lifelong Dodger fan," said Lon Rosen, the Dodgers' executive vice president & chief marketing officer. "He was the perfect choice to be the next Dodger Stadium public address announcer."
