The Los Angeles Rams have finalized their plans for their radio broadcast team, right before pre-season play begins. The team will play their games on ESPNLA 710 and 100.3 The Sound.
The action will be called by JB Long and former NFL running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Long has served as a play-by-play announcer for the Pac-12 network, MLB Network, ESPN Regional Television, and the Big Ten Network. He was one of the founding members of Bleacher Report, and graduated from the University of Notre Dame.
Jones-Drew spent eight seasons in the NFL starring for the Jaguars and Raiders. He is a three time Pro Bowler, and played his college ball in Los Angeles for UCLA. He retired from the NFL following the 2014 season, and has worked as an analyst for the NFL Network, and SiriusXM.
In addition, the Rams will turn to a familiar face to patrol the sidelines. D’Marco Farr, who had served as the Color Analyst for the team the past few years in St. Louis, will remain involved albeit in a new role. Farr played seven seasons in the NFL, and started his NFL career as a member of the Los Angeles Rams in 1994. He also worked for ESPNLA 710 during the mid-2000’s, and was a featured member of the ‘Best Damn Sports Show Period’ on FOX Sports.
Prior to game play, ESPNLA 710 midday host Steve Mason, former NFL Linebacker Kirk Morrison and former NFL cornerback Eric Davis will anchor the pre-game show. Davis has been a featured member of the NFL Network, and previously worked as an analyst for San Francisco 49ers radio broadcasts. Morrison has contributed as an analyst to FOX Sports, SiriusXM, and a number of other sports media outlets.
Following each game, Rams fans will be treated to a post-game show hosted by Davis, Morrison, and ESPNLA 710 host Travis Rodgers. ESPNLA 710 reporter Jeff Biggs will report on the Rams during halftime.
