Kings television play-by-play announcer Bob Miller and color commentator Jim Fox return to broadcast Kings games this season. Miller returns for his 38th season as the television “Voice of the Kings” and Fox, the former Kings forward, is entering his 21st season as the club’s television color commentator. The Kings will also broadcast two games from Honda Center on November 29 and February 23, both airing on FOX Sports West. Miller and Fox have never called a Kings game together from Honda Center on television.

“Our partners at FS West are committed to the Kings and to hockey, and they aim to present the best telecast possible,” said Kings President, Business Operations Luc Robitaille. “Our fans really benefit from this great relationship, and with our goal of every Kings game being televised, we continue to work toward that reality.”

Steven Dorfman will begin his second season on Kings telecasts, serving as the producer, and Mike Hassan will again direct the telecasts, a position he has held since 1995. Kings Vision host Heidi Androl will also return for her third as a reporter along with FS WEST reporter Patrick O’Neal in his sixth season.

“Kings Live” also airs from Star Plaza (outside STAPLES Center) immediately following all primetime home telecasts on FS West, with O’Neal, the host, sitting alongside Fox to offer viewers post-game recaps and analysis. Connected, original, fast-paced and fun, the half-hour program airs live bringing fans closer to the team with player and coach interviews. In addition, the X-mo camera system returns to select Kings telecasts this season on FS WEST. Combined with low and wide camera angles, the X-mo allows analysts to explain crucial plays and lets the fans relive unbelievable moments. The super slow motion replay adds to the storytelling of the game.

In addition, for the second consecutive season, all Kings games will be broadcast in High Definition (HD).

Also, FS West will air a special 30-minute “Kings Live: 2010-11 Season Preview Special” show. It will debut on Sunday, October 3, at 3:30 p.m. on FOX Sports West (immediately following Angels at Rangers). Re-air Dates/Times are as follows:

-- Monday 10/4 at 10 p.m. -- Tuesday 10/5 at 6:30 p.m. -- Wednesday 10/6 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. -- Friday 10/8 at 10 p.m. -- Saturday 10/9 at 6:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.

As announced last month, the following Kings games are scheduled to be broadcast nationally. Also, the Kings-Ducks game at Honda Center on April 8 will be broadcast by the Ducks and seen locally on KDOC.
