The New York Mets today announced that Univision Radio's La Que Buena, WQBU 92.7 FM, will broadcast 150 games in 2010, continuing the organization's long-standing partnership with Univision Radio.

The agreement covers live play-by-play coverage of two Spring Training games and 150 regular season games, and includes cross-promotion of Mets games across all Univision-owned radio stations in New York. The Mets and Univision Radio plan to promote the team's series in Puerto Rico June 28-30 against the Florida Marlins.

The signal of WQBU, New York's only 24-hour Mexican music radio station, extends throughout the tri-state area, giving Mets fans on eastern Long Island, northern New York, New Jersey and Connecticut and southern New Jersey the opportunity to listen to games in Spanish. The New York Metropolitan area is the second-biggest Hispanic demographic in the U.S. and its Mexican population is the fastest growing segment among Hispanics.

"We are excited to be able to provide the New York Mets with an opportunity to reach their fans through our airwaves," said Gary Stone, President and Chief Operating Officer, Univision Radio. "Both organizations share a commitment to the Hispanic community and we look forward to providing our listeners with more quality sports programming."

"The diversity of our team mirrors the diversity of New York, with players who hail from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Venezuela," said Dave Howard, Executive Vice President, Business Operations, Mets. "The continuation of our relationship with Univision allows us to build upon our connection with Spanish-speaking fans and fortify the bond they have with our players. We're looking forward to forming close ties to the growing Mexican community."

Mets Spanish radio announcers Juan Alicea and Max Perez Jimenez will enter their third season calling games together. They will also provide Secondary Audio Program (SAP) for SNY and PIX 11, the Mets' official television partners.

WQBU will broadcast its first Mets game Saturday, March 27 when the Mets host the Washington Nationals for a Spring Training matchup in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
