Dodgers announce 2012 broadcast schedule

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- On Saturday, the Dodgers announced their broadcast schedule, featuring Hall of Famers Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin returning for their 63rd and 54th seasons, respectively.

Scully, 84, will call more than 100 games for the Dodgers this year, including all televised Dodger home games and road telecasts in California and Arizona, but not Colorado. The first three innings of each of the games Scully calls will be simulcast on the radio. Scully's 62 years of service constitute the longest tenure of any broadcaster in sports history.

Jarrin will call all games, home and away.

Two-thirds of the games will be on television on PRIME TICKET, and one-third on KCAL 9. National and regional telecasts on FOX and ESPN complete the schedule. On the radio, games will be live on AM 570 Fox Sports Los Angeles, in its first year as the Dodgers flagship station, and in Spanish on Univision Radio's KTNQ 1020.

Steve Lyons (eighth season) and Eric Collins (fourth season) will call road games on television that Scully does not do. Rick Monday (19th season) and Charlie Steiner (eighth season) will broadcast all games on English-language radio. Jarrin will be joined on Spanish-language broadcasts by Pepe Yantildeiguez (14th season) and legendary former pitcher Fernando Valenzuela (10th season).

"Dodgers Live" pre- and post-game shows at home and on the road on PRIME TICKET will be hosted by Patrick O'Neal and Lyons. KCAL 9's Dodgers gameday coverage will include the station's THINK BLUE TV pre-game show with sports anchor Gary Miller and former Dodger Eric Karros. Post-game DodgerTalk on AM 570 will be hosted by former Major League manager Kevin Kennedy and David Vassegh.
