Quakes, NBC Sports Bay Area & California Announce 2019 Local Broadcast Schedule

February 21, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - San Jose Earthquakes News Release

SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Earthquakes and NBC Sports Bay Area & California today announced their local television broadcast schedule for the 2019 Major League Soccer season. The networks will televise 25 matches in 2019, with 18 on NBC Sports California and seven on NBC Sports Bay Area.

The robust programming includes many marquee matchups, including the season opener against Minnesota United FC (March 2; 12:45 p.m.), the California Clasico against the LA Galaxy at Stanford Stadium (June 29; 6:30 p.m.) and the Decision Day season finale against the Portland Timbers (Oct. 6; 1 p.m.).

Anthony Passarelli and Chris Dangerfield return to the booth for the sixth consecutive season, while Danielle Slaton remains in her role as an on-field analyst for the fourth consecutive season.

Passarelli is a four-time NorCal AFTRA award-winning sports anchor and reporter. He has provided color commentary and radio play-by-play for San Jose State men's basketball and Santa Clara University men's soccer. He is currently the play-by-play voice of Santa Clara men's basketball.

Dangerfield was inducted into the Earthquakes Hall of Fame in 2018 for his work on and off the field. He served as the team's color analyst on television from 1996-99, following a great playing career in both the North American Soccer League and Western Soccer Alliance. In the NASL, he was a key midfielder from 1982-84, scoring 14 goals and notching 14 assists for the Quakes in that span. He helped the 1983 Quakes to an undefeated season at home and a semifinal finish in the playoffs.

One of the fastest rising sideline analysts in the sport, Slaton has also provided commentary for major worldwide events, including the 2016 Rio Olympics for NBC and 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup for FOX. She has also worked with the Big Ten Network and ESPN Chicago. Slaton played for the U.S. Women's National Team from 2000-2005, earning a silver medal at the 2000 Olympic Games and a bronze in the 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup. She also played professionally for Olympique Lyonnias in France, after spending her college years at Santa Clara University, where she captained her team to a NCAA championship in 2001. She was three-time All-American and was named the 2001 NCAA Scholar Athlete of the Year.
