The San Jose Earthquakes announced the local broadcast schedule for TV and radio for the upcoming 2021 season this week, and the big takeaway is it remains along the lines of what we’ve seen the last several years.
Games in the Bay Area will be aired on NBC Sports Bay Area or NBC Sports California this season once again, with Anthony Passarelli (play-by-play), Chris Dangerfield (color commentary) and Danielle Slaton (sideline reporting/color commentary) all returning for the new season.
Eight games are scheduled to be aired on national TV in 2021 for the Quakes, including six on Univision’s networks. I believe all of those games will be available to watch, for free and in English, on Twitter. Otherwise, there’s one game each scheduled for ESPN and FS1.
Meanwhile, the Earthquakes will have radio coverage again in 2021, on KNBR 1050 (English) and 1370 KZSF (Spanish). Ted Ramey and Joe Cannon will be back on KNBR broadcasts, while Carlos Cesar Rivera and Ramiro Corrales will be back for La Kaliente.
If you live outside the San Jose viewing area, the national TV broadcasts in the United States will remain the same, of course, but instead of watching local broadcasts you can watch Quakes games on ESPN+ again this year.
Of course, we’ll keep you posted on how to watch each game as it comes, but there’s your general rundown for the season ahead.
