    Default LA kings announce new iHeartRadio network, no longer broadcast on AM radio

    The LA Kings and iHeartMedia have announced that as part of a new and innovative digital partnership, all Kings games - including preseason, regular season and postseason contests - will now stream live on the new official LA Kings Audio Network, a custom station available on iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia's all-in-one digital music, podcast, on demand and live streaming radio service.

    The coverage on iHeartRadio will also include the broadcast's 30-minute pregame show, which begins with tonight's first preseason game against the Arizona Coyotes at STAPLES Center at 7 p.m.
    Additionally, iHeartRadio will feature Kings Talk, the club's popular call-in radio show, which will stream live after most home games inside the Impact Sports Bar & Grill inside STAPLES Center.

    The LA Kings Audio Network will also be the only place to hear the additional online Kings content plus replays of each game, and as part of the agreement, iHeartRadio will feature exclusive Kings audio content for listeners.

    Wait.... Apparently they will no longer broadcast games on AM radio?!?!?!

    There’s a lengthy press release below, but the gist of it: the LA Kings have partnered with I Heart Radio to create the LA Kings Audio Network, a station that will stream Kings games and content on the iHeart Radio app in lieu of a terrestrial AM radio station. A number of Kings games will still be available on SiriusXM, and the first two pre-season Staples Center home games – tonight versus Arizona and Thursday versus Vegas – can be heard on The Patriot 1150. All games may also be streamed over the NHL’s app. Foster Hewitt Award winner Nick Nickson will return for his 38th season as the Kings’ radio play-by-play broadcaster and will again be joined by Daryl Evans, who will return for his 20th season as the Kings’ color analyst on radio.

    This may require a switch of some listening habits for many who rely on AM radio to listen to Kings games, especially in the car, or in areas with spotty LTE or 3G/4G coverage. Details on how to access the app and bookmark the LA Kings Audio Network are below.

    They will also broadcast on radio, on "The Patriot" 1150 AM, can't wait for the awful gold ads and other scams most conservative radio has.

    It can't be any worse than listening to the awful scams and baloney put out by progressive/socialist stations.

    Anyway, just a sign of the times that has pluses and minuses. I am not a fan of I Heart Media in general, and enjoyed the AM sound quality if for nothing more than nostalgia's sake.

    Just another reason to care a little bit less about Kings hockey for me, but helps others enjoy it more. Oh well.

    Yes, all zero of them in LA. Meanwhile every other AM station in LA sounds like we live in Alabama.

    As for the move from AM to streaming - just another reason for old-timers to struggle and eventually give up. Hey, at least we can see the score the next day in the newspaper. (it's a series of very thin pages with words on it.)

    Which stations would that be?

    If I knew of any like that, I'd listen.
