The Los Angeles Chargers said they've agreed “in principle” to multi-year television and radio agreements to develop content that includes preseason games, news features, community events and promotions.
The Chargers took-up headquarters in Costa Mesa when the team moved from San Diego to L.A. in January.
The deals make KABC-TV, iHeartMedia Los Angeles, KAZA-TV Azteca America 54 and KFWB 980 AM the NFL team’s official flagship English and Spanish language broadcast partners.
The agreements are expected to produce 400 hours of programming annually across the four stations; the work is set under the team’s slogan, “Fight For LA.”
KABC-TV (ABC7) is the West Coast flagship of the ABC television network.
iHeartMedia Los Angeles will air all preseason, regular season and postseason Chargers games on KFI AM-640. The company’s eight radio stations will support the effort with year-round programming and promotional content, including a weekly Chargers series that will air on AM 570 LA Sports during the season.
KAZA-TV Azteca America 54 will serve as the Chargers Spanish-language television station. Chargers’ content is set to include televising all preseason games available to air in Southern California, pre- and post-game shows for the preseason games, a weekly Chargers series during the season and Chargers news during the year.
KFWB 980 AM, housed under the auspices of Los Angeles-based Lotus Communications Corp., will be the team’s Spanish-language radio station. KFWB will broadcast all preseason, regular season and postseason Chargers games, including pre- and post-game shows. The station will also air a weekly Chargers series during the season.
