When the Los Angeles Rams begin their quest to repeat as champions on August 13 to kick off the preseason, a new crew of familiar faces will come together to bring the game to fans watching across Southern California as well as internationally in Mexico, Australia and China. For the second consecutive year, Rams preseason games will be broadcast locally on ABC7/KABC-TV Los Angeles and will be streamed for free on therams.com. Live streams can be accessed via desktop, mobile web and the Rams mobile app. In addition, ESPNLA 710 AM and KWKW 1330 AM will once again bring Rams fans the full season (preseason and regular season) of games.
New this year, Super Bowl Champion and former Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth will join ESPN's Mina Kimes and NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano in the booth for the preseason. ABC7 sports reporter Curt Sandovalwill provide insight from the sidelines.
"I can't wait to join Andrew and Mina in the booth to talk about the 2022 Rams and discuss the returning players from their championship season, this year's new additions, and the excitement for young players who have a chance to be future contributors for the Rams," said Whitworth.
Additionally for each preseason game, Rams Head Coach Sean McVay, Offensive Coordinator Liam Coen, or Defensive Coordinator Raheem Morris will join the broadcast team via the "Coach Cam" to breakdown an offensive or defensive series live during the game.
The Rams' preseason begins on Saturday, August 13 when the Rams play the Chargers at SoFi Stadium (7:00 p.m. PT). The Rams will then host the Houston Texans in Week 2 (Friday, August 19, 7:00 p.m. PT), before wrapping up the preseason slate in Cincinnati (Saturday, August 27, 3:00 p.m. PT) in Week 3.
"We are excited to kick off this season as Super Bowl champs and bring the best broadcast and radio experience to our fans this preseason and all season long," said Rams Vice President and General Manager of Media, Marissa Daly. "ABC7 and the Rams have the most dynamic TV booth in the preseason and we are thrilled to welcome Super Bowl Champ and Walter Payton Man of the Year Andrew Whitworth to entertain our fans alongside two of the best in the business, Andrew Siciliano and Mina Kimes."
