We are excited to build on this foundation with a network like TUDN that is synonymous with the sport.”
The 2020 season marks the fifth year that Dynamo matches have aired on KLAT 1010 AM. The partnership began prior to the 2016 season as part of Univision Radio Houston programming.
“The Houston Dynamo legacy is first class, they are an incredible soccer brand and a perfect match for our sports radio broadcasting flagship – TUDN Radio,” said Univision Houston President and General Manager John M. Hannon. “This partnership provides us an opportunity to satisfy the thousands of Houston fans that are looking forward to the return of Houston Dynamo soccer with great anticipation.”
