On Tuesday, ESPN announced it’s shutting down ESPN Deportes radio on September 8. Ten full-time and 25 part-time employees will be let go.
ESPN Deportes is ESPN’s multimedia, Spanish-language sports brand dedicated to providing the widest variety of sports to the U.S. Hispanic sports fan via television, digital, audio, and print.

Moving forward, ESPN will continue serving Hispanic sports fans with the widest variety of sports through multiple platforms including television, digital, social, mobile and audio podcasts.”
ESPN Deportes has 44 radio affiliates in the U.S. In the New York market, the company owns ESPN Deportes Radio 1050 AM, which will switch to an English-language sports channel.
