    Default Dodgers Headed Back to KABC!!!!!

    I'm just happy that I don't have to deal with the crappy reception of KFWB. Anybody know if KABC sends out a better signal? It can't get much worse than KFWB.

    OC Register

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to announce at 8:30 a.m. Monday that KABC/790 will be the new English-language flagship station for the team, beginning in 2008.

    The announcement is to be made during KABC’s Doug McIntyre program. Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is scheduled to talk on air about the deal at 11 a.m. Monday.

    KABC was the Dodgers home station from 1973-97. KFWB/980 AM has been the flagship station for five years, but that contract expired this year.

    Where do you live that your reception is bad for KFWB?

    Agreed. Occasionally, I'll get a bad signal but its not for an extended period. But this is good news.

    I live in Thousand Oaks. I hear that they have a unidirectional broadcast or something like that so the radio feed sucks as you go North. Sometimes it's clear but as night hits, the station steadily gets worse. It's horrible!

    its better than KFWB, but i was hoping they would go to the only other sports-only station in the area. Dodger talk being interrupted every few mins with traffic/weather/news updates is really annoying.

    Back to KABC 790, eh? They gonna re-hire Ross Porter and get rid of the douchebag Steiner?

    No?

    Then I don't care where they are on the radio dial. But I'm glad it helps out some folks that have so-so reception listen to their favorite ball team on the radio.

    Never had a problem with 980. I got good reception on it from OC all the way down to SD when I made the drive. The only place it didn't come in clear was out in the IE (which I rarely visit). Don't care about the move unless 790 doesn't come in clear in OC.

    Weak signal in Upland/Claremont area for 980. KABC is a lot better.
