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.

There was an open seat in Section 106 amid the sellout crowd at Staples Center. Row 10, Seat 14. It belonged to Mychal Thompson for Game 2 of the Clippers-Golden State Warriors playoff series. He wasn't sitting in it. One of the Lakers' radio voices, Thompson is better recognized these days as the father of Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson. He doesn't see his son play often in person and he didn't want to sit for Monday's game. Too nervous. The elder Thompson carved out some standing room near the tunnel by the Warriors' bench.

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.

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.

The Korea Times, whose suit against Los Angeles journalist Richard Choi led to his recent arrest in Seoul, said Choi intentionally broadcast a radio story that "caused irreparable damage" to the newspaper's parent company. Choi, a news anchor for Radio Korea, KBLA-AM (1580), was arrested Dec. 19 after he broadcast a story to Los Angeles about how South Korean media companies have been hurt by that country's recent economic crisis.

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.

Choosing from among the more than 80 radio stations in Southern California can be a confusing, even mind-boggling experience. If you're a nostalgic sort, do you tune in to the station "with more of your favorite oldies" (KRTH-FM)? Or to the one with "all oldies all the time" (KRLA-AM)? What about "non-stop oldies" (KODJ-FM)? There's also the option of the "only station for classic rock" (KLSX-FM). And another with "more music, more memories" (KLIT-FM).

Moscow should stop jamming Western radio broadcasts to the Soviet Union, a Soviet commentator said Thursday in the government newspaper Izvestia. Alexander Bovin, a senior political observer, said he hoped the time of jamming was coming to an end because the Soviet Union could put forward convincing arguments on most issues to counter Western views and need no longer jam the broadcasts. Western diplomats in Moscow say the Soviet Union stopped blocking broadcasts by the British Broadcasting Corp.

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 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.
