03/18/2008 7:25 PM ET
ANAHEIM -- Angels Baseball today announced the 2008 television broadcast schedule for the upcoming Major League Baseball championship season. The Angels, who will be shown on FSN WEST and KCOP 13 in addition to 12 Major League National broadcasts (ESPN and FOX), will have all 162 games televised during the regular season. Also, FSN West and KCOP 13 will broadcast seven pre-season contests. These announcements were made by Angels' Vice President of Communications Tim Mead and FSN West's Senior V.P and G.M. Steve Simpson.

The Angels and FSN WEST enter their 16th season as telecast partners. This year, FSN WEST offers Angels' fans 100 regular season game telecasts with an unprecedented number - 75 - available in HD. The Angels game telecast viewing experience on FSN WEST is further enhanced by "Angels Live" access and analysis as well as Angels' insider storytelling on original programming exclusive to FSN WEST. To supplement the 100 games on FSN WEST, an additional 50 games will be broadcast over-the-air on KCOP 13 (Channel 13 locally).

Pre-season local telecast coverage of the Angels begins on KCOP 13, Friday, March 21, when the Angels face the Texas Rangers in the first of seven exhibition games followed by the FSN West Spring debut on Easter Sunday, March 23, vs. the Seattle Mariners. The 2008 regular season 100-game Angels schedule on FSN WEST commences on Opening Day, March 31 in Minnesota with an "Angels Live" pre-game show at 3:30 PM before the Angels face the Twins at 4 PM. All times listed are Pacific Daylight Time.

Analyst Rex Hudler and Play-by-Play Announcer Steve Physioc return for their eighth year together in the Angels telecast booth. In addition, the team of Analyst Mark Gubicza and Play-by-Play Announcer Rory Markas will also call games on FSN WEST. As an added feature in 2008, when Hudler and Physioc are not doing TV broadcasts, the pair can be heard on the radio alongside Terry Smith for selected broadcasts on the Angels' flagship station AM-830 KLAA. New for the 2008 season, the Angels and FSN WEST will use a majority of the half-hour pre-game timeslots as a platform for original programming series such as "Before the Bigs", "Insider" and "In My Own Words." FSN WEST currently has several unique, original programs devoted to coverage of the Angels in development.

"As the leader in providing local Angels programming, we are pleased to offer 75 Angels games in HD this season," said Steve Simpson, senior vice president and general manager, FSN PRIME TICKET and FSN WEST. "In addition, FSN WEST will complement the Angels fan's game viewing experience with an increase in Angels original programming. Our producers and reporters have been working with the team throughout the off-season to bring Angels fans the access and storytelling they have come to know and enjoy."
