Dodgers to start weekly off-season radio show

No scare tactics here: The Dodgers announced Thursday that all those hungering for some good off-season team discussion will have a new opportunity beginning on Halloween.

Jorge Jarrin will begin a weekly one-hour show on flagship radio station 570-AM beginning Wednesday titled, “Dodger Talk – Off-Season Edition.”

The program is scheduled to be broadcast Wednesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. and include interviews with players, coaches and team officials.

First baseman Adrian Gonzalez is scheduled to be the debut guest on the inaugural show.

Jorge Jarrín is the son of Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín and recently completed his first season as play-by-play announcer for Prime Ticket’s Spanish-language TV broadcast. He previously served as KABC Talk Radio’s “Captain Jorge,” covering traffic from 1985 to 2011.
