Sounders looking for new Spanish radio home

Here's the word from the club:

Seattle Radio Group – the entity that operates ESPN Deportes 1490 AM – has ceased all broadcast operations, effective immediately. Seattle Sounders FC is currently in the process of finding a new Spanish-language radio home for the club. In the interim, Sounders FC matches and shoulder programming continue to live on its family of broadcast partners, including: Q13 FOX and JOEtv, KIRO Radio 97.3 FM and ROOT SPORTS. Saturday’s match at FC Dallas (5:30 p.m. PT) is being carried regionally on Q13 FOX and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, with ROOT SPORTS re-airing the contest throughout Eastern Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska (check local listings). Questions regarding ESPN Deportes 1490 AM’s cessation of operations should be directed to Clara Rivas of Seattle Radio Group LLC (720-989-3904).
