That Was Then: ESPN Deportes
On Jan. 7, 2004, ESPN Deportes launched as the Spanish-language outlet for ESPN sports fans in the United States. To commemorate the milestone, ESPN Deportes celebrated with a special production of more than 12 hours of live programming and content from Miami Beach, FL, on Jan. 7.
The celebration in Miami included special content from Adriana Monsalve, David Fiatelson, Jorge Ramos, Rosana Franco and others.
In January of 2004, ESPN Deportes went on-air with Somos ESPN Deportes, a show that previewed key programming and featured an array of Latino sports stars. The special introduction was followed by the inaugural Spanish edition of SportsCenter and a live telecast of the NBA game between the Golden State Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks.
Launched a year after ESPN Deportes television, the radio network has grown from a handful of affiliates to a network reaching more than one million listeners every month with 47 affiliates across the country, covering 80 percent of the U.S. Hispanic market. The radio network currently covers more than 300 live sports events scheduled every year.
