Dodgers On Tv And Radio

April 10, 1990

TV: KTTV (Channel 11) and SportsChannel

Radio: KABC (790) and KWKW (1330, Spanish) broadcast all games.


Vin Scully: Scully anchors the Dodgers' three-man TV-radio team. He began his career with the Dodgers in Brooklyn, sharing the radio booth with Red Barber. Last year, Scully was named the California Sportscaster of the Year for the 18th time. He also worked the past seven years as the NBC Game of the Week anchor, until the network lost broadcast rights to CBS. Scully also has been named the outstanding sportscaster in the nation four times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Assn.

Ross Porter: Porter is in his 14th year with the Dodgers and, yes, even has a major league record to his credit. He broadcast all 22 innings of the Dodgers-Expos game last season, the longest consecutive innings of play-by-play in baseball. Before joining the Dodgers, Porter spent 10 years as a sportscaster for KNBC-TV. He also broadcast NFL games for NBC.

Don Drysdale: Drysdale, a Hall of Fame pitcher for the Dodgers, has been broadcasting for the past 20 years with the Angels, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox, Montreal Expos and ABC. He joined the Dodger broadcast team in 1987. In 1988, as a member of the announcing team, he watched Orel Hershiser break his record of 58 consecutive scoreless innings, against San Diego.


Jaime Jarrin: Jarrin, who has covered the Dodgers since 1959 and been the lead Spanish broadcaster since 1973, was in a serious automobile accent in Vero Beach last month and will not begin the season with the team. It is not yet known when he will return. Tito Rondon, who has been broadcasting amateur baseball in Nicaragua, will fill in for Jarrin until his recovery.

Rene Cardenas: Cardenas is in his 13th year with the Dodger Spanish broadcast team. He began with the Dodgers in 1958, their first year in LA, but left in 1961 to become director of the Spanish network for the Astrodome. He rejoined the Dodgers in 1982.
