Vamos Broncos! Broncos Get New Spanish Language Homes
The Denver Broncos, long one of the NFL’s most popular franchises because of three Super Bowl victories and some of the best players in history, have changed Spanish-speaking broadcasters in Denver per a Wednesday morning press release.
The Broncos announced that Telemundo Denver (KDEN-TV) and KNRV-AM 1150 will be the new Spanish language partners for the defending Super Bowl champions, per this article.
Broncos vice president of corporate partnerships, Brady Kellogg, said these broadcasters were chosen because they share the team’s vision of expanding Spanish language coverage of the team in the Denver market.
