LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have reached a two-year contract extension with flagship radio station KTLK AM 1150 (a Clear Channel Communications Property) and all 2009-10 Kings games are scheduled to be broadcast on AM 1150, it was announced today by Kings Vice President, Communications and Broadcasting Michael Altieri.
KTLK AM 1150 has been the radio home for Kings hockey for the past three seasons, and this contract extension ensures that Kings hockey will remain on the station through the 2010-11 season.
Kings radio play-by-play announcer Nick Nickson is entering his 29th season with the organization and his 20th consecutive season as the radio “Voice of the Kings.” He again teams with radio commentator and former Kings forward Daryl Evans, who is set for his 11th season as Nickson’s partner on KTLK AM 1150 and along the Kings Radio Network.
The Kings Radio Network for the 2009-10 season is as follows: Santa Clarita, KHTS 1220 AM; Ventura, KVTA 1520 AM; Palmdale/Lancaster, KOSS 1380 AM; Banning, KMET 1490 AM; Bakersfield, KGEO 1230 AM and Ridgecrest, KLOA 1240 AM.
Evans and Nickson begin each broadcast with a 30-minute pre-game show. In addition, on KTLK AM 1150 they will continue their co-hosting roles on the popular “Kings Talk.” Heard after every home game as well as all road games in Anaheim, “Kings Talk” allows hockey fans an opportunity to call Evans and Nickson with their questions and comments and have them answered on the air.
