Jorge Jarrin will join his father, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin, in calling Dodgers games in Spanish this season on KTNQ-AM (1020).
Jorge Jarrin will be switching roles with Pepe Yniguez, who has shared the radio booth with Jaime Jarrin since 1999. The Dodgers will double the number of games it will offer on SportsNet LA-Spanish this season, broadcasting 150 games on TV, with Yniguez handling the play-by-play and former Dodgers greats Fernando Valenzuela and Manny Mota sharing the job as analyst.
Valenzuela is expected to do 120 games and Mota the rest. Last year, Jorge Jarrin and Mota were the lead broadcasters on SportsNet LA-Spanish.
On Monday, both Jarrins were honored by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters, with Jaime winning for best foreign-language radio play-by-play broadcaster and his son taking home the same prize for TV play-by-play.
