Jorge Jarrin will join his father, Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin, in calling Dodgers games in Spanish this season on KTNQ-AM (1020).

Jorge Jarrin will be switching roles with Pepe Yniguez, who has shared the radio booth with Jaime Jarrin since 1999. The Dodgers will double the number of games it will offer on SportsNet LA-Spanish this season, broadcasting 150 games on TV, with Yniguez handling the play-by-play and former Dodgers greats Fernando Valenzuela and Manny Mota sharing the job as analyst.

Valenzuela is expected to do 120 games and Mota the rest. Last year, Jorge Jarrin and Mota were the lead broadcasters on SportsNet LA-Spanish.

On Monday, both Jarrins were honored by the Southern California Sports Broadcasters, with Jaime winning for best foreign-language radio play-by-play broadcaster and his son taking home the same prize for TV play-by-play.

Jaime Jarrin, 79, was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.

Former NFL defensive lineman Derek Wolfe is joining 104.3 The Fan in Denver as co-host with Darren “DMac” Mckee on The Drive With Derek Wolfe and DMac.

Wolfe announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this year after signing a one-day contract to retire with the Denver Broncos. He was the franchise’s top pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, spending eight seasons with the team, including a win in Super Bowl 50.

“To the listeners in Denver, ‘The Fan Wolfe-pack,’ I am so insanely pumped to talk with you every afternoon on The Fan. We had a special connection when I was playing for the Broncos that’s only going to grow stronger every day on The Drive,” said Wolfe. “DMac and I are going to fight sometimes, maybe we’ll fight a lot of the time, but we’ll always be working together to entertain you. I’ve always kept it 100 with you, and that’s not going to change one bit.” 

“Derek is one of the most popular players in Broncos history, with the iconic image of his sack celebration in Super Bowl 50 forever etched in Denver sports lore,” said 104.3 The Fan program director Raj Sharan. “What’s so exciting about adding Derek is his connection with the audience goes far beyond his production on the field. He’s never been afraid to mince words and is unapologetically authentic. Those characteristics drew Denver sports fans to fall in love with Derek, and we’re thrilled to help Derek build on that relationship everyday as he entertains his ‘Fan Wolfe-pack!’” 

Wolfe enters a role previously occupied by former Bronco Tyler Polumbus, who departed the station in September. The Drive with Derek Wolfe and DMac will be heard weekday afternoons from 2:00 PM-6:00 PM.
