Club Returns To Broadcast Home of 36 Years
ANAHEIM, CA - The Anaheim Angels announced Monday that play-by-play
broadcasts for the Anaheim Angels will be carried on ESPN Radio 710AM,
beginning with spring training games in March 2003.
At the same time, ESPN Radio (currently 1110 AM) and Radio Disney (currently
710 AM) have agreed to switch signals in the Los Angeles market (effective
Jan. 1, 2003). This change means the Angels will be returning to 710AM, the
same radio station that was the club's broadcast home for 36 years.
These announcements were made by Kevin Uhlich, Sr. Vice-President, Business
Operations for the Anaheim Angels in conjunction with John Davison, President
and General Manager of ABC Radio's four stations in Los Angeles: KABC-AM,
KLOS-FM, ESPN Radio and Radio Disney, and Jean Paul Colaco, President and
General Manager of the Radio Disney Network.
Both ESPN and Radio Disney are 50KW stations with similar coverage patterns.
"We're extremely excited to join in this partnership, one we believe reflects
our commitment to our loyal fans," said Uhlich. "For years 710 on the AM dial
was synonymous with Angels baseball. This opportunity allows us to re-connect
with an important part of our past and make it easier for our fans to follow
what we think will be an exciting team in the future.
"At the same time, I would like to thank the staff at KLAC 570AM for their
hard-work and effort in promoting Angels baseball. We have enjoyed a
tremendous relationship in recent years. After several discussions, we both
concur that numerous broadcast conflicts at the start of the season have made
things difficult for both organizations. We wish all of our friends at KLAC
the very best," added Uhlich.
In a joint statement, Davison and Colaco said: "These changes are clearly a
win-win for ABC Radio listeners in Los Angeles. ESPN Radio will be bringing
Anaheim Angels games to their loyal audience from their traditional place on
the dial, and Radio Disney will continue to provide quality programming to
kids and moms."
