Los Angeles Rams Preseason Games to Air on KCBS

KCBS has finalized a multi-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams to serve as the team’s local broadcaster for preseason games, the station announced Thursday.

The deal will gave KCBS three Rams preseason games for the 2016 season — Aug. 20 at home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Aug. 27 at the Denver Broncos, and Sept. 1 at the Minnesota Vikings.

“Everyone at CBS 2 is thrilled to have the opportunity to play a role in welcoming the Rams back to Los Angeles,” said Steve Mauldin, president and general manager of KCBS and sister station KCAL. “We look forward to helping the team to connect with local communities across Southern California, not only through our preseason game broadcasts, but also by providing comprehensive daily coverage of the Rams in our newscasts and supporting the team’s community outreach programs.”

KCBS will also produce and broadcast a half-hour weekly show during the season featuring Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and the station’s sports director Jim Hill. That series will begin at the start of the regular season and air  Saturday nights at 6:30 p.m. on KCBS.

“We’re proud to be partnering with CBS 2 as we kick off our first preseason back in Los Angeles,” said Rams COO and executive vice president Kevin Demoff. “CBS 2 will help bring the Rams closer to our fans with entertaining and informative preseason telecasts, in addition to exclusive interviews and regular season coverage of the team both on and off the field.”
