I personally hate this, it kills the suspense, but they're doing it because ratings are down for those early games so it's hard to blame the station. 2) Laker games on radio are staying on 570 AM, but as of Feb. 3 the station itself will now become the all-sports station that is currently XTRA 1150 and 690. I like having my sports teams on sports-talk stations, but since I'm not fond of most of the hosts on that station, I'm not sure I'm going to be listening more. By the way, those of us who like the old-school, Swingers-style music on 570 will have to change our preset to 690. |||110573209330032003|||Television and Radio Notes
