TEXAS A&M football will air in Spanish this season through the new TEXAS A&M SPANISH NETWORK, created by LEARFIELD SPORTS' TEXAS A&M SPORTS PROPERTIES. The games, called by PEDRO VELA ALMAGUER and ALBERTO RODRIGUEZ, will air on UNIVISION Spanish Talk KLAT-A (LA TREMENDA 1010 AM)/HOUSTON, SALEM Spanish Religion KLUZ-A (RADIO LUZ)/SAN ANTONIO, UNIVISION Spanish Talk KAMA-A/EL PASO, and MBM Spanish Talk KVJY-A (INFORMATIVO RG)/MCALLEN, plus SIRIUSXM DEPORTES EN VIVO and 12THMAN.COM.
TEXAS A&M Chancellor JOHN SHARP said, "It is important that we share the TEXAS A&M brand across the state and to do so we need a Spanish language option for our fans. We believe this is a real step forward for AGGIE sports as we begin our third season in the SEC."
AGGIES Director of Athletics ERIC HYMAN added, “Reaching out to the state’s Spanish speakers is part of TEXAS A&M’s mission and legacy as a land-grant institution. We want to create the best experiences we can for our entire fan base. Our Spanish Network is a brilliant addition to cater to many fans who are faithful AGGIE followers and part of a fast-growing demographic in the state of TEXAS.”
TEXAS A&M SPORTS PROPERTIES GM ERIC BUCHANAN said, “The passion for Aggie football is great, and it only made sense to unveil this additional radio network. We continually look for ways we can increase the overall experience for AGGIE fans, and this is an additional step we can make over the airwaves. We know fans will really embrace it and we’ll be securing more stations as the season goes on.”
