Television broadcast schedule announced - LA Kings Insider

The rookies have taken the ice, training camp is a week away, and the Kings will meet the Phoenix Coyotes for a split-squad exhibition set one week from Sunday.

Hockey season draws near.

In advance of the season, the Kings announced their television broadcast schedule on Thursday afternoon. All 82 games will be broadcast this season: 73 on FOX Sports West / PRIME TICKET*, and nine on NBC Sports Network.

The exhibition games against Anaheim on September 24 (PRIME TICKET) and the New York Rangers on September 27 (KCOP-13) will also be televised. Both games begin at 7:30 and will feature a full, 30-minute Kings Live pregame show beginning at 7:00 p.m.

After NBCSN televises the season opener at Minnesota on October 3, the Los Angeles-Winnipeg game on October 4 will begin a string of 38 consecutive games televised by FOX Sports West.

The 2013-14 season marks Bob Miller’s 41st season as television play-by-play broadcaster, while color commentator Jim Fox enters his 24th season as television color commentator.

FOX Sports West reporters Patrick O’Neal and Alex Curry return to the broadcast, with O’Neal entering his ninth season as a host and reporter, and Curry entering her second season as a reporter. Dan Moriarty, who served as a reporter in 2012-13, will not return this season.

Kings Live will once again precede and follow each FOX Sports West broadcast, with radio color commentator Daryl Evans joining O’Neal for road games and Sean O’Donnell joining Kings Live for all home games and select road games.

Jim Fox will also join Kings Live for postgame analysis, and I’ll continue my pre-and-postgame reports from the road.

Curry, who will handle home postgame interviews and reports, will also host the half-hour Kings Weekly, which debuts on Wednesday, October 9 at 10:30 pm and showcases Kings players while offering behind-the-scenes footage. Curry is the host of Angels Weekly on FOX Sports West.

FOX Sports West will also air Kings Live: Season Preview Special at 10:30 p.m. following the Kings-Ducks exhibition game on September 24.
