RADIO KOREA Korean KMPC-A (RADIO KOREA 1540 AM)/LOS ANGELES will air 60 regular-season LOS ANGELES DODGERS games this season, including tonight's major league debut of pitcher HYUN-JIN RYU against the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS at DODGER STADIUM. RICHARD CHOI and CHONG HO YIM will call the action on RADIO KOREA, which has aired DODGER broadcasts on and off since 1990 (RADIO KOREA formerly aired in a brokered arrangement on crosstown MULTICULTURAL BROADCASTING station KYPA-A).
“We are excited that RYU’s first start will be accessible to the Korean-speaking community tonight,” said DODGERS EVP and Chief Marketing Officer LON ROSEN. “We look forward to continuing the DODGERS’ longstanding relationship with RADIO KOREA and working toward strengthening our connection with the Korean community in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA and back in RYU’s native country.”
“RADIO KOREA is very excited to be the official Korean language broadcaster of the DODGERS,” said CHOI, also Vice Chairman of RADIO KOREA MEDIA GROUP. “We have a long history with the DODGERS. And with the new ownership of the DODGERS and HYUN-JIN RYU from KOREA, this will be a very special season for the Korean community.”
