Published January 23, 2014
ANNOUNCER BREAKDOWN: TWC yesterday formally announced that the RSN will launch on Feb. 25, the night before the Dodgers' first Spring Training game (TWC). In L.A., Steve Dilbeck noted Orel Hershiser will join Charley Steiner "as the new color commentator on the TV broadcasts of games Vin Scully does not broadcast." Steiner's former color man on the radio, Rick Monday, "will now become the play-by-play man," with Nomar Garciaparra doing the commentary. Jerry Hairston and Garciaparra "will do SportsNet LA’s pre- and post-game coverage," and Alanna Rizzo "will serve as the in-game reporter for games called by Steiner and Hershiser." John Hartung "will be the studio host" (LATIMES.com, 1/22).
