As part of game coverage, the Emmy Award Winning “LA Kings Live” returns prior to and immediately following home and road telecasts on the regional networks. Patrick O’Neal returns as host to cover the team for his 18th season, sitting alongside former Kings players Jarret Stoll and Derek Armstrong. Fox also joins pre- and post-game shows to offer viewers further analysis. In addition, Carrlyn Bathe is back for her fifth season to deliver interviews, reports and social media updates surrounding home and road telecasts.

This year’s broadcast schedule on KWKW 1330 AM Tu Liga Radio will be announced at a later date. The games for the second consecutive year will be available via the Tu Liga Live Stream (tuligaradio.com) simultaneously to the regular radio broadcast.
As previously announced, the following Kings games will be broadcast nationally:
ESPN/TNT: 10/11 vs. Vegas (ESPN, ESPN+); 10/18 at Nashville (ESPN, ESPN+); 11/16 @ Edmonton (TNT); 1/11 vs. San Jose (TNT); 2/17 @ Anaheim (ESPN); 4/4 vs. Edmonton (ESPN); ESPN+/Hulu Exclusive: 11/8 vs. Minnesota (ESPN+ / Hulu); 11/10 vs. Chicago (ESPN+ / Hulu); 1/3 vs. Dallas (ESPN+ / Hulu).
On the radio only three current club broadcasting duos have worked together longer than Evans and Nickson (Toronto – Joe Bowen and Jim Ralph started together in 1997-98; Detroit – Ken Kal and Paul Woods started together in 1995-96; and Ottawa – Dean Brown and Gord Wilson started together in 1992-93). Fox is one of the most tenured club television analysts in the NHL – he and his former Kings teammate Craig Laughlin of the Capitals have been in their roles since 1990-91; Mickey Redmond has consistently worked Red Wings broadcasts as an analyst since 1986.
