LA Galaxy announce local broadcast schedule and talent for 2015 season

CARSON, Calif. (Monday, March 9, 2015) – The LA Galaxy announced today their complete local television schedule for the 2015 MLS Regular Season, including details on the comprehensive programming and live game coverage that will air on Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes.  As the exclusive, local TV homes of the LA Galaxy, Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes bring fans unrivaled, depth and access shows produced especially for the team’s fan base.    

The networks enter their fourth season as the exclusive local home of the LA Galaxy, with each network airing 20 Galaxy matches with full pre and post-game coverage from StubHub Center and on the road.

Returning as the lead play-by-play announcer on Time Warner Cable SportsNet is Joe Tutino, who enters his second season in that role. Previously, the broadcast veteran had been the radio voice of the Galaxy from 2003-14, while working in both Galaxy TV and radio from 1999-2002. After beginning his career as the public address announcer during the Galaxy’s inaugural match in 1996, Tutino has been in the broadcast booth for all matches outside the 1996 season.

Alongside Tutino will be Galaxy legend Cobi Jones, who is returning for a third-straight season as the network’s lead analyst. The all-time leader in games played for both the Galaxy and the U.S. National Team, Jones spent 12 seasons playing for the Galaxy before joining the club’s coaching staff following the 2007 campaign. The two-time MLS Cup winner left the club following the 2010 season and joined Time Warner Cable SportsNet in 2012.

Kelli Tennant rounds out the on-air talent for Time Warner Cable SportsNet Galaxy games as the network’s sideline reporter. Tennant, a former standout volleyball player at USC and prior to joining Time Warner Cable SportsNet, worked at other sports broadcasts entities including ESPN, Fox Sports, the Pac-12 Network, Trojan TV All-Access, Longhorn Network, the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) and E! News.

At Time Warner Cable Deportes, Martin “El Pulpo” Zúñiga returns to the on-air team as the lead soccer analyst for the network.  Known for his 14-year career as a professional soccer player in Mexico and the United States, Zúñiga is a well-respected voice in MLS and on the international soccer stage. Samuel Jacobo will again join Zúñiga with the play-by-play action. Also returning for the network is team, and soccer insider Elmur Souza, who will support Zuñiga during live game telecasts in the booth and on the sideline.

On Time Warner Cable SportsNet, live game coverage includes the pre-game show, “Access SportsNet: Galaxy” hosted by studio hosts Chris McGee and Jaime Maggio. On Time Warner Cable Deportes, the pregame “Galaxy En Vivo” and postgame “Vamos Galaxy” shows will bring fans every angle of the team and be hosted by network presenter Ricardo Celis who will be joined by guest commentators including Francisco X. Rivera, Steve Sampson and Christian Bozzo.

Original programming returning on the networks is the Emmy Award-winning series, “Backstage: Galaxy” and “Galaxy Confidencial,” the documentary-style series that will again take fans inside the locker room and on the road with the team all season long. Each network will air 21 exclusive episodes during the 2015 season.

Other programming on Time Warner Cable SportsNet includes“ Timeless Galaxy,” re-telecasts of classic Galaxy games enhanced with social media interaction and bonus commentary on “Encore+” and games condensed into a fast-paced, one-hour format on “Galaxy Compacto,” and the network’s signature interview series “Connected With…”

Time Warner Cable Deportes will also re-air games condensed into the one-hour, “Galaxy Compacto,” format and the nightly “Tu Show Deportivo” studio-show will keep fans updated on all things LA Galaxy, including daily reports from team training sessions along with all relevant news happenings around MLS.
