NY Jets Land Broadcast Deal In Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES — Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets are going to be Los Angeles’ hometown NFL team.

ESPN LA announced Thursday that it has reached an agreement with the Jets to broadcast all 16 of the team’s regular-season games on 710 ESPN Radio.

The partnership comes as a result of the popularity of Sanchez, a former University of Southern California star.

Sanchez says he’s “happy that Jets fans in the LA area will now be a part of our 2011 season.”

Scott McCarthy, vice president and general manager of ESPN LA, says it’s “an honor to be able to bring Mark Sanchez back to LA and back to his huge local fan base.”

Los Angeles hasn’t had an NFL team since the Rams and Raiders left, but hopes to get one back in the near future.
