It is the news that we all expected to come out as soon as the team announced that 11.000 tickets was available for the game. Now, here is the news from Chargers Park that per NFL policy, Sunday’s game between the Chargers and the Baltimore Ravens will not be shown live in Southern California. The game kicks off at 1:05 pm PT at Qualcomm Stadium.
This will become the second home game for the team to be blacked out in Southern California not including the preseason. Last game, was bought out by corporate partners to allow it to be broadcast. The League’s long-standing policy requires all games not sold out 72 hours prior to kickoff to be blacked out in the local market. This includes all signals within a 75-mile radius of the stadium and those areas whose television signal reaches within that 75-mile zone. The League’s policy affects all telecasts, including cable and satellite. That mean's that Chargers fans in the teams secondary market Los Angeles will not be able to see the game either.
But, the game will be broadcast on the radio. The broadcast can be heard on Rock 105.3 FM and XTRA Sports 1360 AM in San Diego and KLAC 570 AM in Los Angeles. Josh Lewin and Hank Bauer will call the game from the booth and Mike Costa will report from the sideline. The Chargers Radio Network also includes KATY 101.3 FM in Temecula and the Inland Empire; KCAL 96.7 FM in Riverside and San Bernardino; KNWH 1250 AM in the Yucca Valley; KNWZ 94.3 FM in Palm Springs; KAVL 610 AM in Palmdale and Lancaster; KSPA 1510 AM in Ontario, Inland Empire and Rancho Cucamonga; KRAK 910 AM in Victorville and Hesperia; KKYT 93.7 FM in Ridgecrest; ESPN Radio 1100 AM in Las Vegas; KXO 107.5 FM in the Imperial Valley and Yuma, Arizona; KHIT 1450 AM in Reno, Nevada, and Sirius Satellite Radio.
Fans who purchased tickets to see Sunday’s game will also will be on hand for the official halftime induction ceremony of former Chargers punter Darren Bennett into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame. Bennett will become the 36th member of the team’s Hall of Fame.
Sunday also is the Chargers’ annual Alumni Weekend and nearly 100 of the team’s former standouts will be introduced pregame.
