GLR Media Networks and international sports radio brand talkSPORT announce that they have launched an exclusive partnership for broadcast radio distribution and ad sales representation of the hugely popular English Premier League (EPL) in Spanish.

Univision Deportes, the multimedia sports division of Univision Communications Inc.

Video didn’t kill the radio star. In fact, radio has recently seen record numbers across some coveted demographics, reaching 92% of Millennials each week.

The show will air at 5 p.m. ET/PT (4 p.m. CT) on Fridays on UniMás.

Frankly, although data has become the new lingua franca, this process is still very common.
