Dodgers Remove Charley Steiner Off TV Broadcasts

Just as I was starting to take a shine to him, too ... Charley Steiner won't be part of the TV broadcast crew anymore in away games outside of the NL West for 2009.
Dodgers VP of communications Josh Rawitch confirmed that Steiner was OK with being taken off the 40-odd FSN Prime Ticket and KCAL-Channel 9 road game package that Hall of Famer Vin Scully passes on each season (all games East of the Rockies). Steiner will go back to working exclusively on the KABC-AM (790) radio broadcasts for the entire season with Rick Monday as his partner.

The decision to make Steiner-Monday the radio team for all 162 regular-season games (after the three innings that Scully simulcasts to open each contest) also means a) Monday won't have to fumble around with play-by-play any longer and b) former Dodgers pitcher Jerry Reuss unfortunately won't be needed.

Which is also too bad, because I also enjoyed Reuss as a color man. The team hasn't announced a replacement for Steiner yet.
