Steiner-Monday duo coming back for more
By Jon Weisman
Rick Monday and Charley Steiner have signed new multiyear contracts to remain the Dodgers’ radio broadcast team.
“Rick and Charley have been a great team in the broadcast booth,” Dodger executive vice president and chief marketing officer Lon Rosen said. “The combination of the two talents over the past 12 years has provided Dodger fans a thoroughly enjoyable journey through each and every game. We look forward to them continuing for many years to come.”
The pair will continue calling games on the Dodgers’ flagship station AM 570 LA Sports and across the Dodger radio network.
Monday, 70, is in his 24th season as a Dodger broadcaster and his 32nd with the organization, the first eight as a player.
“I have been privileged over the years to call the Dodgers family and Dodger Stadium home, and my broadcast partner my friend,” said Monday. “I’m really looking forward to continuing this great experience with all of our wonderful fans.”
Steiner’s career in broadcasting began in 1969 and included 14 years with ESPN and three with the New York Yankees before landing in Los Angeles.
“From the time I was seven years of age, back when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn, all I ever wanted to be was an announcer for the Dodgers,” said Steiner. “And to continue on in a place that I love, with a partner who is a good friend, and spending the last dozen years with Vin, there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t pinch myself.”
