KLAC-AM (570), which begins a three-year deal as the Dodgers’ radio flagship station in 2012, has yet to officially announce that former big-league manager Kevin Kennedy will be installed as the new post-game “DodgerTalk” host, but management has told Josh Suchon and Joe Block that they won’t return as part of the package.
Suchon has been the “DodgerTalk” co-host the last four years on KABC-AM (790), with Block last season and with Ken Levine for the previous three.
“It was four of the best years of my life,” Suchon said today. “I’ll always have special fondness for Ken Levine, Joe Block and all the Dodgers fans who kept us company after every game. But the show needs a new voice to keep it fresh, and I don’t blame 570 for wanting to take the show in a different direction. It’s time for me to embark on a new adventure and find a new challenge.”
Suchon, a former minor league baseball play-by-play man who came up in the sports business on the newspaper side, called two USC men’s basketball games on ESPN3 last weekend from the Las Vegas Invitational.
