The Dodgers are not only planning to add a Korean-language TV broadcast next season, but they also are looking at adding Korean-language radio broadcasts, possibly as soon as the coming season, a source said. The Dodgers are reacting mostly to interest generated in Southern California's Korean community by the addition of starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu, who is attempting to become the first Korean to go directly to the major leagues. The left-hander is currently scheduled to be part of the Dodgers' starting rotation this season.

Every Friday two students are summoned to the principal's office at Bathgate Elementary School. But not because they're in trouble. Instead, the students deliver news to a South County radio audience of about 25,000 through a partnership with Saddleback College radio station KSBR-FM. The 60-second spots produced by the students air during the radio station's noon news broadcast. They can serve as a nerve-racking way for students to learn the value of research and practice.

The Chinese government warned Thursday that proposed U.S. radio broadcasts to China would harm Sino-U.S. relations and asked Washington to make a "wise decision." "The Chinese side is concerned about this and hopes that the U.S. government will make a wise decision so as to prevent serious consequences to Sino-U.S. relations," a Foreign Ministry spokesman said by telephone.

Iraq demanded that all allied troops leave its territory immediately in a broadcast on Friday that told the Iraqis for the first time since the fighting stopped two days ago that U.S.-led coalition forces remain inside Iraq. Iraq's Foreign Minister Tarik Aziz charged that the allies' continuing presence and ongoing air maneuvers over Iraqi soil "represent evil intention," and he indicated they are unacceptable as part of the cessation of hostilities.

Underlining Iraq's let's-get-it-on challenge for a ground war in Kuwait, Baghdad Radio on Monday declared that Saddam Hussein's regime would not accept a cease-fire in the conflict. The hard-line stance marked continued Iraqi intransigence in the face of a widening war. Over the past 48 hours, Iraqi leaders and media repeatedly have dug in against Iranian, Soviet and Jordanian initiatives to find a political way out.

A new voice will debut at the Metropolitan Opera this weekend, and she probably will never sing a single note. Margaret Juntwait takes over as host of the company's national radio broadcasts each Saturday, only the third regular announcer since the series began in 1931. She plans to arrive at her booth on the opera house's grand tier about 60 minutes before she goes on the air for the season's opening broadcast -- Verdi's "I Vespri Siciliani" (The Sicilian Vespers).

Set to music befitting an action movie, the promotional ad for broadcaster Globovision recounts some of the events that have shaken this country since President Hugo Chavez came to power six years ago: a coup attempt, soldiers firing on demonstrators, a strike that crippled the nation and a recall vote that divided it. Those images are now barred from the airwaves, as are all news clips depicting unrest or confrontation, whether live or edited, domestic or foreign.

Hall of Fame broadcaster Vin Scully won't call the Dodgers' series opener against the San Diego Padres on Friday night, marking the fourth consecutive game he'll miss because of a cold. But the 84-year-old Scully's condition is improving and he could return to the booth as early as this weekend, according to a team spokesman. In Scully's absence, Charley Steiner and Steve Lyons will continue to call the games on Prime Ticket. Rick Monday and Kevin Kennedy will work the radio broadcasts on AM 570.

Javy Guerra knows he's onto something. For the latest of his major league-leading four saves, the Dodgers' second-year closer entered the game Wednesday night with Mariachi Vargas' "La Negra" playing on the Dodger Stadium public-address system. Hearing the Mexican mariachi song, what remained of the modestly sized crowd went crazy. "I'm sure they had a good time with it," Guerra said of the fans, many of them presumably Latino. The bilingual Guerra grew up in suburban Dallas.

The tornado sirens sounded about 9:30 p.m., prompting a stampede through the hallways of Joplin's Hilton Garden Inn. "You're going to go through a lot of these in your life," a man told his adolescent son, who was trembling with fear, as they sought refuge Tuesday night. "I'm not living in Joplin," the boy spat back. Photos: Tornado hits Joplin Not long ago, tornado sirens would have elicited a blase response here: a shrug, a glance at the sky. But something — actually, almost everything — changed in Joplin on Sunday night, when a twister of historic ferocity gouged a path of destruction through the heart of this southwestern Missouri town.

Bob Pittman, best known for his stints as the founder of MTV, the president of AOL Inc. when it was still called American Online, and the chief executive of Six Flags Entertainment Corp., has coasted over to Clear Channel Communications Inc. as the radio conglomerate's chairman of media and entertainment platforms. For the 57-year-old New York-based executive, the move in November to the nation's largest radio broadcaster was not so much a stretch into yet another entertainment medium as a return to his roots.

Howard Stern, the self-described "king of all media," will continue his reign with Sirius XM Radio Inc. Ending speculation that he would take his show to the next frontier ? whatever that might be ? the radio personality said on his morning show Thursday that he had signed a new deal that would keep him with satellite radio broadcaster Sirius XM for five more years. Stern, who turns 57 next month, did not reveal details of the pact, but word that he was staying put was enough for investors to drive up Sirius XM stock about 20% in early-morning trading.

Where were you during "Fernandomania," about 30 years ago? As a 14-year-old, Paul Haddad taped the radio broadcasts and edited them together, turning Vin Scully's calls of that 1981 season into personal keepsakes. It was, for the L.A. boy, a meeting of two masters: the pitching prodigy from a dusty Steinbeckian village in Mexico and the Bronx-born broadcaster at peak form ... baseball's velvet fog. And the ultimate L.A. marriage. "The best part is, at any given moment, I get to relive Scully in some of his finest moments," Haddad, now a freelance documentary producer, says of his collection of tapes.

A pair of American neo-Nazis accompanying KFI morning personality Bill Handel to Germany earlier this week were refused entry and deported upon arrival in Munich, where Handel broadcast his morning show about the Holocaust. Handel and other station officials arrived in Munich Tuesday and went on to broadcast in Poland today from Auschwitz, where Handel's grandparents were killed.

They were just a jumble of conversations overhead on a train. But for South Korean radio station founder Young Howard, they represented breaking news from a hostile, inaccessible land. When North Korea recently defied international calls for restraint and launched a rocket, purportedly to put a satellite in orbit, it wasn't long before a covert correspondent there was on her cellphone to editors in Seoul. People were celebrating a colossal success, she whispered.

A Los Angeles judge overseeing a lawsuit by Nicaraguan banana workers against food giant Dole said Monday that she was concerned for her safety and the safety of witnesses due to escalating unrest in the Central American country. "Statements made in radio broadcasts and a press conference were pretty direct against me, or this court," 2nd District Court of Appeals Judge Victoria G. Chaney said after hearing evidence presented to her by Dole attorneys in a closed hearing. She did not elaborate on what the statements were.

Here's how Jack Ramsay learned to become an NBA radio analyst: Back in the mid-1990s, after his accomplished basketball coaching career, ESPN Radio offered Ramsay a job alongside the man Ramsay calls the best play-by-play talent in the country, Jim Durham. Ramsay told Durham he wasn't sure about how to do this radio thing. "I think we worked it out well," Ramsay said Sunday before he, Durham and Hubie Brown called Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Staples Center. "Jim takes the action up to the score, then after the score he will pause and if I have something to say about the strategy or what a coach has done or what a player has tried that got him open, then I'll say it and then I'll give Jim the microphone back," Ramsay said.
