PHOENIX -- The Dodgers are revamping their pregame and postgame shows on radio, including the addition of new co-host Tony Gwynn Jr. to postgame Dodger Talk along with David Vassegh.
Gwynn retired as a player after spending the 2015 season with Triple-A Syracuse in the Nationals system. The 33-year-old outfielder played for three years in the Dodgers organization, including 2011-2012 with the big league club, hitting .245/.294/.326 in 239 major league games with Los Angeles.
Gwynn will team with Vassegh for Dodger Talk, which will now also include segments from Charley Steiner, Rick Monday, Alanna Rizzo and Ned Colletti.
Super excited to be joining SNLA crew and Dodger Talk this season! @THEREAL_DV & myself will have great show!— Tony Gwynn Jr. (@tonygwynnjr) February 26, 2016
The pregame show, Dodgers on Deck, will be hosted by Tim Cates, a longtime producer, reporter and host on AM 570 Fox Sports LA radio. Dodgers on Deck will feature pregame reports from Vassegh and Monday.
Dodger Talk will be a postgame show after every Dodgers game beginning with the Freeway Series in Los Angeles on March 31, but during spring training will be an hour-long show on weeknights, Monday through Friday at 7 p.m. PT.
