The ever popular pregame and postgame show on AM 570 will get a little bit of a makeover going into 2016. The regular host, David Vassegh, is back for his fifth season as he hosts the postgame show. He’ll be accompanied by former Dodger Tony Gwynn, Jr. That wasn’t all, though.
The postgame show, per the press release, will also feature broadcasters Rick Monday, Charley Steiner, Alanna Rizzo, and Ned Colletti. So that should be pretty fun and interesting to at least get their insight and input on the air after each game is complete.
The pregame show will be hosted by new addition Tim Cates, and he will have reports from Vassegh and Monday in the moments prior to a game getting underway. Cates is an area native, he went to UCLA, and he used to work as a reporter and host for Fox Sports Radio Network. So he’s a good get.
DodgerTalk will be available Monday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. as the team goes through Spring Training, and it’ll follow every game of the season starting March 31st. So be sure to set your alarms to never forget when the show comes on the air.

LOS ANGELES – DodgerTalk and Dodgers on Deck, the popular pre- and post-game shows on AM 570 LA Sports Radio, will have several new voices to provide the latest Dodgers news, highlights, analysis and interviews in 2016.
Regular host David Vassegh is returning for his fifth season as host of the post-game show and he will be joined by former Dodger Tony Gwynn Jr. In addition to Vassegh and Gwynn, the shows will also include segments with broadcasters Charley Steiner, Rick Monday, Ned Colletti and Alanna Rizzo.
Tim Cates will host the Dodgers’ pre-game show for the first time and he will have reports from Monday and Vassegh leading up to the game. Cates, who was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated from UCLA, has previously served as a producer, reporter and host on Fox Sports Radio Network and AM 570 LA Sports.
The 33-year-old Gwynn Jr. played eight seasons in the Major Leagues for the Brewers (2006-08), Padres (2009-10), Dodgers (2011-12) and Phillies (2014). In 685 career games, the San Diego native stole 80 bases, including a career-high 22 with Los Angeles in 2011. He had his best year in 2009, hitting .270 with a career-high 106 hits for the Padres.
DodgerTalk can be heard Monday through Friday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. during spring training and following each game beginning with the “Freeway Series” exhibition games with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starting Friday, March 31 and through the 2016 season.
