New Looks on the Local Level

April 08, 1990|STEVEN HERBERT

The changes in baseball's television coverage aren't just taking place at the network level. Three local announcing teams also have a new look.

Longtime NBC broadcaster Joe Garagiola joins Sports-Channel cable's Angel broadcasting crew, working alongside fellow former St. Louis Cardinals catcher Joe Torre.

Meanwhile, Torre will begin his first full season as the play-by-play announcer on KTLA's Angels telecasts. Reggie Jackson is rejoining the Angels organization, filling Torre's analyst job.

SportsChannel also has a new Dodgers announcing team. Joel Meyers, who announced Angels games for the pay service last season, is switching leagues. Former Dodgers third baseman Ron Cey is the new analyst, replacing former teammate Don Sutton.

The Dodgers KTTV crew of Vin Scully, Ross Porter and Don Drysdale remains intact. However, because Scully will no longer have NBC commitments to fulfill, he is expected for all 50 telecasts.
