LA to Get New York Jets Games on the Radio

Los Angeles may have a tentative stadium deal. But we still don’t have a football team lined up. Rumors are we’re after the San Diego Chargers. One team we definitely won’t be getting is the New York Jets. But that isn’t stopping “ESPN 710″ KSPN-AM from putting their games on the radio. Starting next season, Angelenos will be able to hear all 16 Jets games live on the radio. KSPN execs are obviously hoping folks are still curious about the exploits of former USC star Mark Sanchez, now QB of the Jets.

“It’s an honor to be able to bring Mark Sanchez back to LA and back to his huge local fan base,” KSPN VP/General Manager Scott McCarthy said in a statement. “There is tremendous passion for the NFL here in LA, and this partnership with an elite franchise will further energize the Southland’s sizable population of football fans.”

Sounds good and all. But this Fishie would rather listen to Matt Leinart as he curses and stews while riding the bench in Houston.
