After over three decades on 570 KLAC the Lakers are moving to 710 ESPN.
The move ostensibly coincides with ESPN’s huge investment in the L.A. Live project across the street from Staples Center.
“This is an exciting but somewhat bittersweet announcement for the Lakers organization,” said Jeanie Buss, Executive Vice President of Business Operations. “KLAC has been a wonderful partner for more than three decades and we greatly respect and appreciate everything they have done. At the same time, we feel strongly that the time is right for this move to 710 ESPN.”
The Lakers radio broadcasting team of play-by-play announcer Spero Dedes and color commentator Mychal Thompson will move with the team to the new station.
