The Dodgers can’t get a TV rights deal in place to save their hides. But a radio deal … that’s different. And maybe a new influx of income for the time being.
After airing games the last four seasons on talk-radio KABC-AM (790), the Dodgers are expected to announce Friday a new multi-year deal to move to all-sports KLAC-AM (570) starting in 2012, according to more than one source not authorized to speak about the contract.
The Dodgers, who have apparently got the OK through bankruptcy court to approve the move, had been with KABC from 1973 to 1997 before skipping around to KXTA (1998-2002) and KFWB (’03-’07) prior to circling back to KABC. KMPC (1958-60) and KFI (’61-’72) have also been Dodger flagship stations.
