The Los Angeles Dodgers and Univision Communications have renewed their Spanish-language radio broadcast deal, keeping Dodgers games on Univision’s KTNQ-AM 1020 radio station for another three seasons.

The new agreement covers the rights to games through the 2018 baseball season, the Dodgers and Univision said Wednesday. KTNQ-AM 1020 will broadcast all regular-season games, eight spring training games a year and any postseason games. 

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin last month began announcing his 58th season. His son, Jorge Jarrín, joined him last year in the broadcast booth, and the duo are continuing this season as the only father-son broadcasting team covering a Major League Baseball club for Spanish-language radio.
