ESPN Deportes to Broadcast Met Games in 2013

ESPN Deportes Nueva York will be the Spanish broadcast home for the New York Mets starting next season. Under the agreement, 1050 AM will originate 150 regular season games, including select spring training, and postseason. In addition, all games on ESPN Deportes will feature pre- and post-game shows.

“We are thrilled to launch our new partnership with ESPN Deportes, which has become a destination station for Hispanic sports fans in New York,” said Dave Howard, executive VP, business operations, New York Mets. “Through ESPN Deportes, we look forward to building our connection with Spanish-speaking fans.”

In September, ESPN 1050 became ESPN Deportes Radio, the first and only Spanish-language 24-hour sports radio station in New York.

“Our commitment to serving the Hispanic sports fan is a top priority for our company,” says Dave Roberts, VP and general manager of ESPN Radio New York 98.7 and ESPN Deportes Radio Nueva York 1050 AM. “We are delighted to join forces with the Mets organization for this comprehensive and wide-ranging opportunity.”

The Mets join an ESPN Deportes lineup that already includes New York Jets play-by-play action.
