UNIVISION Regional Mexican WQBU (LA QUE BUENA)/GARDEN CITY, NY will air 150 regular season NEW YORK METS games this season, as well as two pre-season games. The METS are moving over from WQBU sister Spanish Talk WADO-A, which will air YANKEES games this season. JUAN ALICEA and MAX PEREZ JIMENEZ return for their third season calling METS games.
"We are excited to be able to provide the NEW YORK METS with an opportunity to reach their fans through our airwaves," said UNIVISION RADIO Pres./COO GARY STONE. "Both organizations share a commitment to the Hispanic community and we look forward to providing our listeners with more quality sports programming."
"The diversity of our team mirrors the diversity of NEW YORK, with players who hail from the DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, PUERTO RICO, MEXICO and VENEZUELA," said METS EVP, Business Operations DAVE HOWARD. "The continuation of our relationship with UNIVISION allows us to build upon our connection with Spanish-speaking fans and fortify the bond they have with our players. We're looking forward to forming close ties to the growing Mexican community."
