“The Canes are a symbol of our city, dear to the hearts of all South Florida. We are thrilled to bring live coverage of all the excitement to all Hispanics in South Florida . Partnerships like this, together with our daily top quality programing, are what have made our station leading Spanish News Talk station in the market“, stated Tomas Martinez, General Manager of the station, during the announcement.
“Radio Caracol brings a strong listener base, deep local roots and expertise in promotions,” said Chris Freet, Associate AD for Communications & Marketing for University of Miami Athletics. “We were looking for a more than just a radio partner; we needed a partner in the community. One that can help UM build relationships locally and create a stronger foothold in the Spanish market. We hope this three-year partnership is just the start of a long tradition.”
The season kicks off this coming Saturday September 1st when, for the second consecutive year, the Miami Hurricanes will open on the road at Atlantic Coast Conference rival, Boston College, at 3:35 pm, EDT.
