Orlando, FL – For the 2013-14 season, all Orlando Magic games will be broadcast in Spanish on the Magic’s official Spanish website, ElOrlandoMagic.com. In addition, every broadcast will also be available on Rumba100.com, the official site for Rumba 100.3 (WRUM-FM).
Joey Colon will begin his 16th season as the Spanish play-by-play announcer for the Orlando Magic. For the last three seasons, Colon also called games in Spanish on television. He will also provide additional commentary on ElOrlandoMagic.com and appear over-the-air on Rumba 100.3 every Monday.

It features original content and coverage of the Magic, including in-depth game coverage, breaking news, features, video clips, photo galleries, podcasts, press releases and team information in Spanish.
