Entercom has reached a multiyear content sharing agreement with Univision New York’s Que Buena 92.7 FM (WQBU-FM) station to broadcast New York Mets games.
As part of the agreement, WCBS 880 (WCBS-AM), the flagship station and radio broadcast rightsholder of the New York Mets, will produce all of the 162 regular season and postseason games to be aired on Que Buena 92.7 FM in the Tri-State area through the 2022 season.
“We’re pleased to partner with Univision New York to bring New York Mets games to Spanish-speaking fans,” said Susan Larkin, Regional President and Market Manager, Entercom New York. “As the unrivalled leader in local sports coverage, we’re looking forward to bringing our premier content to an even broader audience through this strategic partnership.”
“Adding New York Mets baseball to our popular Que Buena 92.7 station gives our audience more of the content they love, whether they’re listening at home, at work or during their commute,” said Roberto Yañez, President and General Manager, Univision New York. “We are pleased to partner with WCBS and bring our community closer to one of their favorite home teams with live Spanish-language coverage all season long.”
Beginning with the 2020 season, the play-by-play team for Spanish-language broadcasts will include longtime Mets broadcasters Max Perez Jimenez, Nestor Rosario and Juan Alicea.
Univision New York includes three radio stations as well as the region’s leading Spanish-language news station, which has served the Latino community in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut for over fifty years.
