CARSON, Calif. (Tuesday, January 31, 2012) – The LA Galaxy announced today that KTLK 1150 AM and ESPN Deportes Radio KWKW 1330 AM will once again carry the local radio broadcasts of Galaxy games during the 2012 MLS season.
KTLK 1150 AM, the sister station of Fox Sports Radio, AM 570 KLAC, will return for their fifth consecutive season of broadcasting Galaxy games in English.
