He joined them in August 2012 and lasted one season on the job as the team won their second straight NBA championship. He had previous television experience as a weekend sports anchor at WFOR-TV Channel 4 for several years until the fall of 2012.

Sedano was also a radio game analyst for FIU football games alongside Jeremy Marks-Peltz in 2009 and 2010. He exited 790 The Ticket in early April 2012.

He left News Radio 610 WIOD-AM in early August 2007 where he was the morning sports anchor and the studio host for the Miami Heat Radio Network broadcasts. He also was the overnight host on Fox Sports Radio where he broadcast his program from the Miramar studios at Clear Channel. He shifted to a Sunday evening show in the final months.
