CITADEL Talk KABC-A/LOS ANGELES has hired NEW ORLEANS HORNETS pre-game, halftime, and post-game host JOE BLOCK as the new co-host of the DODGERTALK baseball postgame call-in show with JOSH SUCHON. BLOCK, who called DODGER-affiliated JACKSONVILLE SUNS minor league baseball for four seasons, replaces comedy writer/producer and veteran baseball broadcaster KEN LEVINE, who is returning to call SEATTLE MARINERS games as one of the rotating play-by-play voice crew filling the gap left by the passing of DAVE NIEHAUS.
"I'm humbled by this opportunity and eager to get to work," said BLOCK. "I'm genuinely excited to be back in the DODGER family and to co-host a show with JOSH that captures the passion of the fans."
