AM570 FOX Sports LA is "King" of 2012 Stanley Cup Final Coverage and Entertainment
LOS ANGELES, June 5, 2012 -- AM570 FOX Sports LA proves to be "king" when it comes to LA Kings coverage and entertainment during the 2012 Stanley Cup Final, providing listeners with an all-access pass to the games, the best guests, and top-notch listener events. Traveling to New Jersey to watch the Kings face-off against the Devils in Game 1, the station's Loose Cannons gave listeners a week-long backstage pass to the team, including locker room interviews featuring King's stars Mike Richards, Dustin Penner, and Game 1 winning scorer Anze Kopitar. The Cannons also shared their experiences at the game and at team practices throughout the week.
AM570 FOX Sports LA brought the excitement back home this week, with a live broadcast from the LA Kings fan-fest yesterday at L.A. Live, where the Petros & Money live broadcast was the centerpiece of the festivities. The station invited special guests to the stage, including event co-host and legendary Kings broadcaster Jim Fox, with appearances by Kings GM Ron Hextall, the great Wayne Gretzky, the always crowd-pleasing Luc Robitaille, and more. Drawing huge crowds, the AM570 stage was THE place to be at the fanfest, adjacent to the Staples Center arena. With prize giveaways, including autographed memorabilia, the station offered the only opportunity to win tickets to yesterday's game. AM 570 also hosted a viewing party with Loose Cannons' Vic "The Brick" Jacobs at Excalibur Medieval Restaurant across the street from the arena.
There's still another chance for fans to come out and partake in all the fun with another live broadcast and chance to win tickets and prizes leading into Game 4 on Wednesday. Special appearances will include former LA Kings players Bernie Nicholls, Ray Ferraro and Glen Murray, along with former player and Kings commentator Daryl Evans and Kings play-by-play announcer Bob Miller.
