The Los Angeles Dodgers Radio Network is a network of 26 radio stations that air Major League Baseball games of the Los Angeles Dodgers. As of June 2012, 20 stations broadcast games in English, while another six broadcast them in Spanish.[1] In 2013, Korean broadcasts were added.[2]


Vin Scully has been the English play-by-play voice of the Dodgers since 1950.

Vin Scully, who has broadcast Dodgers games since 1950, does play-by-play during Dodgers' locally televised home games, along with road games in California and Arizona.[3] Unlike most baseball broadcasters, Scully prefers to announce solo. Scully only calls the first three innings on radio (simulcast with Dodgers' television broadcasts); after the first three innings, the radio broadcasts are handled by Charley Steiner on play-by-play and Rick Monday with color commentary while Scully continues on television; Steiner and Monday also do the entire radio broadcast for nationally-televised Dodger games. For locally televised road games that Scully does not call, Steiner handles the TV commentary with Orel Hershiser and Nomar Garciaparra on color commentary, while Monday calls play-by-play on radio with Kevin Kennedy doing color.




A separate network airs games in Spanish. Jaime Jarrín has been the Spanish play-by-play voice of the Dodgers since 1959. His oldest son, Jorge Jarrin, is also the play-by-play announcer replacing Pepe Yniguez and Fernando Valenzuela who are now on SportsNet LA's Spanish-language channel.
