UniMás Houston will televise four Dynamo matches this season, in addition to six which will air nationally on the network. As part of the agreement, Univision Radio will broadcast every Dynamo game this season locally on 1010 AM KLAT.

Univision Radio becomes the new home for Dynamo Spanish radio broadcasts.

Veteran broadcaster Daniel Mejia will handle play-by-play duties for all radio broadcasts. He’ll be joined in the booth by KXLN Univision 45 Sports Anchor Lester Gretsch, who will provide match analysis.
