The Florida Panthers announced today that the team has partnered with 1210 AM ESPN Deportes in Miami and ESPN Deportes 760 AM in West Palm Beach and will air three Florida Panthers radio broadcasts in Spanish during the 2014-2015 season.
“We are excited to work with 1210 AM ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes 760 AM on the return of Florida Panthers Spanish-language radio broadcasts,” said Panthers CEO & President Rory A. Babich. “These radio broadcasts will help to continue to grow and enhance our brand and the game with our Hispanic fan base in the tri-county area.”
The first Spanish-language radio broadcast will take place on October 30, when the Panthers celebrate Hispanic Heritage Night and host the Arizona Coyotes (7:30 p.m.). The Panthers will also air Spanish-language radio broadcasts on January 15, when the Cats host the Colorado Avalanche (7:30 p.m.) and on March 21 against the Boston Bruins (7 p.m.).
Arley Londono, who served as the Panthers original Spanish-language broadcaster (1993-1996), will handle the play-by-play duties, while Octavio Sequera will serve as the color analyst and host.
Florida’s roster features the first Cuban-American National Hockey League player, goaltender Al Montoya, who was signed as a free agent on July 1. Montoya will also be featured on weekly radio shows on 1210 AM ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes 760 AM.
The broadcast can also be streamed at www.1210espndeportes.com and the 1210 Deportes Mobile App.
