Entercom and Univision have cut a content sharing partnership for Spanish language radio play-by-play of the New York Mets. Under the multiyear agreement announced Thursday, Mets radio rights holder “NewsRadio 880” WCBS will produce Mets play-by-play in Spanish, which will air on Univision Spanish AC “Que Buena 92.7” WQBU-FM. The agreement covers all of the MLB team’s 162 regular season and postseason games.
“We’re pleased to partner with Univision New York to bring New York Mets games to Spanish-speaking fans,” said Susan Larkin, Regional President and Market Manager, Entercom New York. “As the unrivaled leader in local sports coverage, we’re looking forward to bringing our premier content to an even broader audience through this strategic partnership.”
The team’s Spanish language play-by-play previously aired on Disney’s Spanish sports WEPN (1050).
Beginning with the 2020 season, the play-by-play team for Spanish-language broadcasts will include longtime Mets broadcasters Max Perez Jimenez, Nestor Rosario and Juan Alicea.
“Adding New York Mets baseball to our popular ‘Que Buena 92.7’ station gives our audience more of the content they love, whether they’re listening at home, at work or during their commute,” said Roberto Yañez, President and General Manager, Univision New York. “We are pleased to partner with WCBS and bring our community closer to one of their favorite home teams with live Spanish-language coverage all season long.”
