NEWS: Earthquakes Announce Local Broadcast Information for 2021 MLS Season

SAN JOSE, Calif. – The San Jose Earthquakes announced today their local television and radio broadcast schedule for the 2021 Major League Soccer season. NBC Sports Bay Area and NBC Sports California will televise 26 matches in 2021. The Quakes also welcome back KNBR 1050 and 1370 KZSF ‘La Kaliente’ for radio coverage during the season, with select matches moving to KNBR 680.

 

TELEVISION

Many marquee matches will air on NBC Sports Bay Area or NBC Sports California in 2021, including the season opener against Houston Dynamo FC (April 16; 5 p.m. PT), a mid-summer showdown against LAFC (Aug. 8; 4 p.m. PT), Austin FC’s first-ever trip to San Jose (Oct. 20; 7:30 p.m. PT), and the Decision Day season finale vs. FC Dallas (Nov. 7; 3 p.m. PT).

The broadcast crew of Anthony Passarelli, Chris Dangerfield and Danielle Slaton will continue to provide exciting play-by-play and provide insightful color commentary throughout the season.

Passarelli enters his 10th year broadcasting Earthquakes soccer, and eighth in the TV booth. A four-time NorCal AFTRA award-winning sports anchor and reporter, he has provided color commentary and radio play-by-play for San Jose State men’s basketball and Santa Clara University men’s soccer.

Dangerfield, entering his eighth consecutive year as a color analyst, was inducted into the Earthquakes Hall of Fame in 2018 for his work on and off the field. He served as the team’s color analyst on television from 1996-99 following a great playing career in both the North American Soccer League and Western Soccer Alliance. In the NASL, Dangerfield was a key midfielder from 1982-84, scoring 14 goals and notching 14 assists for the Quakes in that span. He helped the 1983 Quakes to an undefeated season at home and a semifinal finish in the playoffs.

Slaton is entering her sixth consecutive season as a color analyst for the Quakes. She has provided commentary for major worldwide events, including the 2016 Rio Olympics for NBC, and 2015 and 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup for FOX. Slaton played for the U.S. Women’s National Team from 2000-2005, earning a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games and a bronze in the 2003 FIFA Women’s World Cup. She also played professionally for Olympique Lyonnias in France, after spending her college years at Santa Clara University, where she captained her team to a NCAA championship in 2001. She was three-time All-American and was named the 2001 NCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year.

 

RADIO

KNBR 1050 and 1370 KZSF will continue serving as the club’s radio broadcast stations in English and Spanish, respectively. KNBR 1050 will be the English radio home of the Quakes for the fifth consecutive season, while 1370 KZSF “La Kaliente” will be the team’s Spanish-language flagship for the 11th season in a row.

KNBR maintains one of the strongest reputations in American sports radio and also serves as a radio partner for both the San Francisco Giants and San Francisco 49ers. KNBR’s broadcast team will include the familiar voices of Ted Ramey and Joe Cannon.

Ramey will serve as the primary play-by-play voice for home and away broadcasts for the eighth consecutive year. His resume includes work for soccer, hockey, football, track and field, and CrossFit. He has been a sports broadcasting personality in the Bay Area since 2012 and has been hosting the San Jose Earthquakes’ Soccer Hour on KNBR 1050 since 2016. Ramey is also a reporter for KCBS Radio.

Cannon will serve as the color analyst for home matches for the eighth straight season. He started his Earthquakes playing career in 1999, helped San Jose win its first MLS Cup in 2001, and later captured MLS Goalkeeper of the Year honors in 2002. During his career, Cannon spent seven seasons with the Quakes and still leads the club’s goalkeeping records in games started (171), minutes played (15,561), wins (66) and saves (693).

1370 KZSF is a locally owned Spanish-language station that hosts daily sports talk shows and also plays a wide variety of pop-music. Carlos Cesar Rivera returns as the Spanish-language broadcaster for the Earthquakes, and also hosts La Kaliente’s sports talk show from 5–7 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, which covers MLS and Liga MX, as well as many other sports teams in the Bay Area. Rivera came to the Earthquakes with a distinguished sports broadcasting background, having called games for the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Oakland Athletics, San Francisco Giants and the San Francisco Bay Blackhawks during his lengthy career.

Ramiro Corrales will serve as the broadcast’s color analyst for the third season in the row following a lengthy playing career that saw him be inducted in the club’s Hall of Fame in 2015. He currently ranks second in starts (228), third in appearances (250) and sixth in assists (32) in Quakes’ history.
