Mets, Clear Channel lock down deal with ESPN Deportes


The Mets and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment have extended their partnership with ESPN Deportes Nueva York 1050 AM to broadcast games in Spanish through the 2016 season.

The station, which began airing Mets games in Spanish last season, will broadcast 150 regular-season games, along with select Spring Training and postseason games.

"We are excited that ESPN Deportes Radio will continue to be the home of the Mets for our Spanish-speaking fans," Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said in a statement. "We look forward to strengthening our relationship with them through our partnerships with ESPN Deportes Radio and Clear Channel and presence on their assets that appeal to the Hispanic community in New York."

This year's coverage will begin on March 9 when ESPN Deportes Radio Nueva York 1050 will air the Mets' Grapefruit League game against the Braves at 1:10 p.m ET. It will also air the Mets' game against the Nationals on March 23 at 1:10 p.m ET. Regular-season coverage will begin with Opening Day on March 31 against the Nationals, at 1:10 p.m. ET from Citi Field.

The Mets and Clear Channel Media and Entertainment launched a five-year landmark multimedia partnership in November that encompassed Mets English and Spanish radio rights, Mets-related programming and promotion through all of Clear Channel's media assets, including radio, digital, outdoor and music and entertainment events.
