The San Diego Padres and Broadcast Company of the Americas today announced they have agreed to terms on a contract extension that will keep Padres broadcasts on XX 1090 AM Sports Radio for the 2012 season.
“We are pleased to be able to renew our partnership with BCA,” said Padres President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Garfinkel. “XX-1090 offers some of the finest sports programming in our region, and it remains the best home for Padres content, including game broadcasts.”
In accordance with the agreement, all Spring Training games and all 162 regular season Padres games will be broadcast on XX 1090 AM in 2012.
“We have enjoyed our proud eight-year association with the San Diego Padres and look forward to bringing our loyal fans and long-time listeners a renewed commitment to our outstanding coverage of Spring Training and the regular season for 2012,” said Tex Meyer, vice president and general manager of XX 1090 AM Sports Radio. “XX 1090 AM has been widely recognized for our consistency of broadcasting excellence of the Padres, and this new opportunity allows us to maintain our ongoing performance on their behalf.”
The current broadcasting team comprised of Jerry Coleman, Ted Leitner and Andy Masur will return for 2012, with the addition of former Major Leaguer Bob Scanlan. Scanlan will share color commentary duties with Coleman, while Leitner and Masur will share the play-by-play role.
