Orlando Magic to Televise 19 Games in Spanish This Season

The Orlando Magic have announced they will broadcast 19 of their games in Spanish this season, a first in franchise history. The announcement comes just weeks after the team debuted its Spanish-language website, ElOrlandoMagic.com, and reaffirms the team's commitment to Orlando's Hispanic community.

The full press release, which includes the broadcast schedule, follows the jump.

Orlando, Fla. – For the first time in team history, the Orlando Magic will broadcast 17 home games and two road games in Spanish. The home games will be produced by Sun Sports and Fox Sports Florida, while the road contests will be produced by the local Fox Sports regional network.

The broadcasts will be seen in both Orlando and Tampa via Bright House Networks. News 13 En Espanol, Channel 613 and 130, will televise games in Orlando, while Bay News 9 En Espanol, Channel 900 and 154, will broadcast games in Tampa. The first of 19 games televised in Spanish will be Friday, November 5 vs. New Jersey.

The home games will be called by familiar voices as Joey Colon, entering his 13th season with the Magic’s Spanish radio broadcasts, will continue with his play-by-play duties for television. Colon’s partner, Ramon Rivas will serve as the color analyst in his sixth year with the broadcast team.

The Magic also continue with their Spanish radio broadcasts announcing their partnership in mid-October with Radio Luz 1270 AM (WRLZ) as the new flagship station for all radio broadcasts. Every preseason, regular season and postseason Magic game will be broadcast on the WRLZ network. VIVA 1160 AM will also return for its second season as part of the Magic Spanish Radio Network.

In an effort to further connect to the growing Hispanic fan base in Central Florida, the Orlando Magic launched ElOrlandoMagic.com in early October. The new and improved Spanish website serves as the official source for the Hispanic community. The site features original content and coverage of the Magic including in-depth game coverage, breaking news, features, video clips, photo galleries, podcasts, press releases and team information in Spanish.
