TUDN & Unanimo Deportes Fill ESPN Deportes Sized Hole

TUDN Unanimo Deportes RadioWith ESPN shutting down ESPN Deportes Radio, Univision’s TUDN Radio and a new startup Unanimo Deportes have expanded their affiliate rosters.

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“.

      It’s me… The NotiGAPE stream has Unanimo promotions on it, so it’s pretty safe to say they went with that option. (I actually went and listened since Unanimo has yet to publish a list of its affiliates)

      XESS is weird; it’s part-time sports, with the station also carrying talk programs targeted as Tecate under the moniker “PSN Radio Tecate”, despite actually not being in Tecate. If you know anything about PSN, it’s probably a political play of some sort. (It also gives XHKT some competition specific to that town) PSN had been LMAing out XEXX without a clear purpose; this gives it one.
