The Royals and 610 Sports Radio (KCSP) today announced that all of the club’s 162 regular season games will air on 610 Sports in 2011, including Sunday contests.  The 2011 broadcast schedule kicks off this Sunday, February 27th, with Kansas City’s Cactus League opener against the Texas Rangers.  The first pitch is scheduled for 2:05 Central time.   

2011 will mark the 43rd season behind the microphone for Royals Hall of Famer Denny Matthews.  The 2007 Ford C. Frick Award winner will share play-by-play duties with 13-time Kansas Sportscaster of the Year Bob Davis.  Pre-game host Steve Stewart joins Matthews and Davis in the booth for his fourth season with the club.  Ryan Lefebvre will join the radio team for non-televised games.  Broadcasts on the Royals Radio Network are produced and engineered by Don Free, who is in his 26th year at the controls.

 

Royals Radio Network and KWTO-Springfield reach agreement for all 162 games in 2011

The Royals and KWTO-AM 560 in Springfield, Mo. have entered into an agreement for the station to carry the Royals Radio Network.

KWTO, founded in 1933, is one of the strongest and most iconic radio stations in the Royals’ eight-state region.  The 5,000-watt signal can be heard throughout southwest and western Missouri, including the Lake of the Ozarks and Kansas City, throughout a majority of eastern Kansas, into Oklahoma and in northwest Arkansas as far south as Fort Smith.  Locally-owned and operated, KWTO-AM 560 will carry all 162 regular season Royals games.

The Royals Radio Network will continue to be one of the largest in baseball in 2011, consisting of over 90 affiliates in eight states.

 

Like father, like son

The Royals Radio Network will feature a father and son duo for tonight’s 6:05 Central start in Cleveland.  The radio team of Bob Davis and Steve Stewart will be joined by a second Davis, Bob’s son Steven.  The younger Davis just finished his third season as the voice of the Double-A NW Arkansas Naturals.  Steven Davis spent the previous three seasons calling the action for Kansas City’s rookie affiliate in Idaho Falls.

While Steven will help the radio team throughout the weekend, Thursday will be the only pairing with his father.  Bob will return home to call Saturday’s football game between KU and New Mexico State.

Chat with Ryan Lefebvre…

In the past, he’s been in the Royals Radio booth. This season, he is camping out in the FSN Kansas City TV booth. He’s down in the dugout during batting practice. He’s in the clubhouse before the game asking the tough questions. And, he’s even in the Press Club eating a quick dinner before jumping behind the mic.

Well, today, along with being at U.S. Cellular Field to broadcast the Royals 7:11 p.m. contest against the White Sox, Ryan Lefebvre will also be in front of the computer, answering your questions as part of the Royals Relay Chat Series.

In his 10th season as a Royals broadcaster and his 14th in the Major Leagues, Lefebvre will chat with fans at 2 p.m. (CT) today – Tuesday, June 3. To participate in the afternoon chat, you need to register here on royals.com.
