Lakers set to switch to 710 ESPN next season

December 11, 2008 |  4:01 pm

The Lakers will be switching radio stations beginning next season, leaving 570 KLAC after three decades and moving to AM station 710 ESPN.

Under the multi-year agreement announced Thursday, the station will carry all 82 regular-season games and any playoff games, as well as pregame and postgame coverage and preseason contests.

"This is an exciting but somewhat bittersweet announcement for the Lakers organization," said Jeanie Buss, Lakers executive vice president of business operations.  "KLAC has been a wonderful partner for more than three decades and we greatly respect and appreciate everything they have done.  At the same time, we feel strongly that the time is right for this move to 710 ESPN."

The Times' Diane Pucin will write about this change in her column. Look for her column later Thursday on
