Orlando, FL – The Orlando Magic and ESPN580 Orlando have announced a five-year contract extension for the station to continue to serve as the Magic Radio Network’s flagship through the 2017-18 season.

Every preseason, regular season and postseason Magic game is broadcast on the Magic Radio Network Flagship, ESPN580 Orlando. Dennis Neumann provides the play-by-play, Richie Adubato takes on the color analyst duties, Scott Anez serves as the pregame, halftime and postgame host, and Dante Marchitelli works as the sideline reporter for all home games. In addition, Anez serves as host of Inside Magic, a local program which precedes the network pregame show Magic Tonight.

“We’re very excited to announce the continued partnership between ESPN580 Orlando and the Orlando Magic,” Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins said. “ESPN580 Orlando represents the quality and excellence we strive for in bringing our product to our fans and stakeholders and we are looking forward to this continued relationship.”

The team is heading into its “Silver Season” in 2013-14, celebrating 25 years of NBA basketball in Central Florida.
