Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Los Angeles Lakers radio networks consist of two separate networks for the coverage of Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball. One is an English language network while the other is a Spanish language network. There are 17 total stations in four states (Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico) between the two networks.

On-air personnel

Current announcers for the English-language network include Spero Dedes as the play-by-play announcer since 2006. The color commentator since 2004 is former Lakers player (with the team for their 1987 & 1988 championships) Mychal Thompson. Dedes and Thompson stayed on as announcers when the broadcasts moved from KLAC to KSPN at the start of the 2009-2010 season.[1][2]

Former on-air personnel for the network have included legendary play-by-play announcer Chick Hearn and former NBA player Stu Lantz as a color commentator.[3] Pat Riley served as a color commentator for the network from 1977 until late 1979 when he became an assistant coach for the team.[4]

English-language network

The English-language Los Angeles Lakers Radio Network is a three-state, 17-station network with KSPN ("710 ESPN") serving as the flagship.[5] Starting with the 2009-2010 season, KSPN took over the flagship position under a five-year deal, thus ending the Lakers' three-decade relationship with KLAC.[1] KLAC served as the Lakers' flagship station from 1977 to 2009.[6]
