The Los Angeles Dodgers took care of the Hall of Famers on their announcing crew last week, as both Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin decided to return in 2012 for their 63rd and 54th years with the club, respectively. On Tuesday, the Dodgers announced their entire stable of announcers will return in 2012. Dodgers games are televised on Prime Ticket and KCAL, and are heard on radio on KABC and the Dodger radio network.
Jarrin has been announcing Dodgers games since 1959, the Dodgers' second year in Los Angeles. He once had a streak of nearly 4,000 consecutive games broadcast from 1962 to 1984, a streak that make even Cal Ripken Jr. blush.
Rick Monday will return next year for his 19th season in the Dodgers' broadcast booth. Monday serves as radio analyst on radio alongside Charley Steiner, who will return for his eighth season in 2012. In games that Scully calls for television, Scully's call is heard on radio for the first three innings, followed by Steiner and Monday. In all other games, Steiner and Monday call all nine innings on radio.
Eric Collins returns for his fourth season as television play-by-play man for road games outside the National League West. His analyst is Steve Lyons, who will return for his eighth season as part of the Dodgers' broadcast crew. Lyons also works the pre- and post-game shows for Prime Ticket broadcasts.
