TUDN & Unanimo Deportes Fill ESPN Deportes Sized Hole
Unvision’s TUDN Radio, which rebranded in July, has added new affiliations with Multicultural Broadcasting’s 1680 WTTM Lindenwold NJ/Philadelphia, Entercom’s “El Zol Deportes” 1580 WJFK Morningside MD/Washington DC, Alpha Media’s 1220 WKRS Waukegan/Chicago IL and Lotus Broadcasting’s 1330 KWKW Los Angeles/1220 KTMZ Pomona and 1490 KWAC Bakersfield. The network has also affiliated with Gold Coast Broadcasting’s recently launched Spanish News/Talk “La Voz 1520” KKZZ Port Hueneme/Oxnard CA.
Former ESPN Deportes General Manager Lino García and former ESPN Deportes Radio Program Director Gerardo Quirama are behind the newly launched “Unanimo Deportes” that debuted on Monday with a number of former ESPN Deportes talent involved. The network launched on flagship 990 WMYM Kendall/Miami, while Good Karma Brands’ “760 Deportes Radio” WEFL Tequesta/West Palm Beach is airing a mix of programming from both networks.
Among other former ESPN Deportes affiliates, Lotus’ 1600 KGST Fresno is airing Regional Mexican music branded as simply “AM 1600” and TBLC Media’s 1480 KCZZ Mission KS/Kansas City is airing Regional Mexican music but still identifying as “ESPN Deportes 1480” on-air. Lotus’ 1460 KENO Las Vegas retains Spanish Sports but no word on what network as “1460 Vegas Deportes“.
