Magic to Televise 13 Games in Spanish

October 2, 2012

ORLANDO -- The Orlando Magic will broadcast 12 home games and one road game in Spanish during the 2012-13 season. The home games will be produced by Fox Sports Florida, while the road contest will be produced by Fox Sports Southwest in Dallas. The first of 13 games televised in Spanish will be Friday, November 9 vs. Brooklyn.

The home games will be called by Joey Colon, entering his 15th season with the Magic’s Spanish radio broadcasts, handling play-by-play duties for television. The Magic also announced yesterday, Spanish radio broadcasts will continue with all games in Spanish exclusively on the Magic’s Spanish website, ElOrlandoMagic.com. This is the first time the games will be broadcast on the team’s site.

In an effort to further connect to the growing Hispanic fan base in Central Florida, the Orlando Magic launched ElOrlandoMagic.com in October of 2010. The new-and-improved Spanish website serves as the official source for the Hispanic community. It 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.
