SPANISH BEISBOL PRODUCTIONS' PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES Spanish-language play-by-play will air on CBS RADIO Oldies WOGL's "PHILLIES 24/7" HD-4 channel starting on MAY 3rd. The games have been airing in Spanish on MULTICULTURAL RADIO BROADCASTING's Spanish-Ethnic WTTM-A (EL PASAPORTE 1680 AM)/LINDENWOLD-PHILADELPHIA. SPB Pres. BILL KULIK, RICKIE RICARDO, and ANGEL CASTILLO continue to call the action.
CBS RADIO SVP/Market Manager MARC RAYFIELD said, “We are excited to reach a new and growing audience with these broadcasts as we continue to expand our partnership with the PHILLIES. By carrying games on PHILLIES 24/7, CBS RADIO PHILADELPHIA is proud to expand coverage of Spanish play by play. "
KULIK added, “As the Spanish language broadcasters of the PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES, SPANISH BÉISBOL PRODUCTIONS is excited to have our signal carried on WOGL’s HD signal. The Hispanic population of the U.S. is forecast to grow 188% between 2000 and 2050. By comparison, the non-Hispanic population is forecast to grow just 29%. With the number of Spanish speaking PHILLIES fans experiencing explosive growth in our region, and the Latino passion for baseball, this is a service that I am certain will be well received by the Hispanic community.”
“It is important for us to be able to speak to all of our fans, and I am very happy that CBS RADIO has decided to partner with us in increasing our connection with the Latino community,” said PHILLIES SVP/Marketing and Advertising Sales DAVID BUCK.
