Hall of Fame Dodger broadcaster Jaime Jarrín,“the Spanish Voice of the Dodgers,” returns in 2013 for a 55th season to the Dodgers’ Spanish-language broadcast booth. His newly signed contract keeps him on board for 3 years doing the Dodgers’ Spanish-language radio broadcast on Univision America KTNQ 1020 AM Los Angeles.
Jaime will broadcast most of the Dodgers’ 162 regular season games, eight Spring Training games and all potential postseason games through the 2015 season. He holds the longest tenure ever in MLB’s Spanish-language broadcasting history and the second-longest tenure in MLB broadcasting history behind fellow Hall of Famer Vin Scully.
A native of Ecuador, Jaime began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1959 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998. A pioneer in Spanish-language sports broadcasting, he has collected numerous accolades, including the first Southern California Sports Broadcasters Association’s President’s Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Dodgers Spanish-language radio broadcast, launched in 1958, is the longest running in all of baseball.
