RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING is flipping one of the four Sports ESPN 980/WASHINGTON simulcast stations on SEPTEMBER 1st, with WXTR-A going Spanish Sposts as ESPN DEPORTES 730.
The station will also air WASHINGTON REDSKINS play-by-play in Spanish. Sister stations WTEM-A, WWXX, and WWXT continue as a trimulcast in English.
“We are very excited to reach sports fans in WASHINGTON,” said ESPN DEPORTES RADIO Senior Director and GM OSCAR RAMOS. “This is yet another step toward our goal of reaching emerging Hispanic audiences and offering them original, high-quality sports content unlike any other.”
"RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING is committed to effectively covering sports for all sports fans," said RED ZEBRA CEO BRUCE GILBERT. "Bringing all sports in all Spanish to DC with ESPN DEPORTES was a big goal, but it was even more important for us to offer WASHINGTON REDSKINS football in Spanish."
