Union Radio details South Africa 2010 coverage


Union Radio, a Prisa company, announced its extensive coverage of the soccer World Cup in South Africa, with the participation of a team of over 50 pros composed of journalists, soccer experts and a large group of special envoys to South Africa that will bring all the results, the latest news, in-depth reports and comments to the 26 million people that tune in to Union Radio’s stations daily.

This year, due to the time difference with South Africa, the matches will be played during daylight hours in the Americas, so it is expected that the radio listening will be greater than ever. For this reason, in addition to the live broadcast of the games for listeners in Mexico, Argentina, Colombia and Chile, in-depth coverage of Union Radio includes:

Jorge Campos, one of the most charismatic Mexican soccer players of all time, hosts these daily features that bring listeners an overview to the history of soccer’s most popular Cups and follows the current participating teams’ journey up to the victory, remembering the biggest moments of the greatest event in soccer and their heroes in an appealing and energetic way.

The event in South Africa serves as a backdrop to discuss soccer beyond soccer. In intimate tone, literature, film, music and soccer experts give their opinion on the world’s most popular sport. It is a snapshot of South Africa 2010 from every possible angle. The program is conducted by Enrique Hernandez Alcazar of Mexico, Jose Luis Larranaga Fachado of Spain, Antonio Casale of Colombia, Sergio Kanevsky of Argentina and Rodrigo Hernandez of Chile. Starting 6/5, the program will be broadcast daily from South Africa.
