KTLK has been providing very compelling radio of late. Kings playoff hockey.
No one knows it's there just like Angels games on KLAA.
Actually, Angels games/talk on KLAA is some of AM 830's most compelling content. Roger Lodge has an active morning show, and if nothing else, his BASEBALL REPORT each weekday at 7:45 AM is a must listen, where he interviews prominent scribes who cover MLB. I think the Angels have had better radio announcers in the past (Dick Enberg, Don Drysdale, Bob Starr, Darren Sutton, etc.), however IMO overall coverage of, and conversation about, Angels baseball is some of the best content available on LARadio.
Haven't heard the Angels radio broadcasts of late, but the TV duo is TERRIBLE. Rojas and Gubicza have simply not improved from their rough start a few years ago and the two really jumped the shark earlier this season by calling a no-hitter by Jared Weaver and not informing the audience of it at all during the broadcast. Why? They didn't want to jinx the no-hitter
. Honestly, can we get some broadcasters here that are not still in the third grade? We are in LA, not Topeka. Never mind the fact that they are supposed to be reporters reporting on the game and are not among the actual game participants, how many casual viewers did they lose who may have tuned in for a few minutes and tuned out before having to deduce on their own that a no-hitter was in progress? We're talking complete lack of professionalism
here. And Manny Mota's son has no place in the broadcast booth either. His monotone, bookish delivery is a total downer when your trying to get excited for the game. When he explains something, it almost sounds as if he's talking down to the viewer. We could use an insightful color analyst, not a professor who will be quizzing us later.
Please bring back Steve Physioc and Rex Hudler, so I can tune in to Angel broadcasts again. You really know your broadcasting presentation is not up to snuff when people view Rex Hudler, the broadcaster's skills superior to yours - and they do.
A good Angel radio announcer you left off your list was Al Conin, who to my ear had a very similar voice and style as Bob Starr.
