Dodgers sign deal to change flagship radio station
The Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to terms with Clear Channel Communications on a multiyear radio deal that will broadcast the team's games on KLAC-AM starting in 2012.
Their games had been heard on KABC-AM for the last four seasons. The new deal moves the games to a station with an all-sports format.
The deal that runs through 2014 calls for KLAC to broadcast all 162 regular-season games, at least seven spring training games and any postseason games.
The Dodgers sought bankruptcy protection in June, blaming Commissioner Bud Selig for refusing to approve a renegotiated multibillion-dollar TV deal with Fox Sports that owner Frank McCourt was counting on to keep the franchise afloat.
