The Houston Dynamo and Mega TV (KTBU) announced a partnership today to make the station the Dynamo's official Spanish-language TV partner for the 2013 season. The deal gives the Dynamo one of the most comprehensive broadcasting platforms across MLS.

  • After a series of ownership changes, it was purchased by Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc., the largest publicly traded Hispanic-controlled media company in the United States, in May 2011
  • Mega TV currently reaches more than 5 million households with over-the-air, cable and satellite distribution on an HD signal
  • Mega TV has full distrubution in the Houston DMA.
  • Mega TV has a daily news show called Portada that airs every night from 10-11. The show will include news/highlights about the Dynamo, with new episodes airing every Tuesday and Thursday.

To say that Major League Soccer has come a long way over the past 18 years would probably be a bit of an understatement. With games regularly scheduled on the ESPN family of networks on the NBC family of networks and with a game on the main Univision channel this year, MLS is getting more exposure than ever.

That exposure has paid off, as MLS was selected to be one of the companies featured on the new CBS reality series The Job. The show will feature five candidates participating in several rounds of elimination challenges before a panel of executives as they compete for their dream job.

Not only are we excited to see MLS get featured on a CBS primetime show, but we, in Houston, are very excited to see one of our own competing on the show.

Crystal Solomon, an Assignment Manager at CW 39 at KIAH-TV, will be one of the five contestants competing for a job as an associate producer position at MLSsoccer.com, the League’s official website. The panel of judges who will determine the fate of the contestants includes: President of Soccer United Marketing, MLS’ commercial arm, Kathy Carter; Chief Marketing Officer Howard Handler; Executive Vice President, Competition, Technical & Game Operations Nelson Rodriguez; and MLSsoccer.com Editor-in-Chief Greg Lalas, among others.

We have not had the chance the speak with Crystal about the show, but according to her bio, she has been with CW-39 since March 2011. Prior to that she worked for the FOX Broadcasting Company and and KPRC-TV.

The MLS episode of "The Job" will air on Friday, March 1 from 7-8 p.m. CT on the CBS Television Network.

We'll update you again after the show, but we want to wish Crystal the best of luck as she pursues her dream job!

More than 200 fans, sponsors and dignitaries packed House of Blues Monday night to commemorate the new partnership between the Houston Dynamo and GOW Media. Last week, the two entities announced they would be joining forces to make Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 AM and ESPN 97.5 the new radio home for Dynamo soccer.

The event began with Afternoon Delight hosts Adam Clanton and John Wessling broadcasting their show live from House of Blues. The radio hosts chatted with Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear and first round draft pick Jason Johnson, among others. Listen to their interview with Kinnear:

The event continued with a special presentation, as each radio host from GOW Media was presented with a personalized Dynamo jersey from head coach Dominic Kinnear, team president Chris Canetti and the Dynamo Girls.

As part of the new agreement, Dynamo All-Access with Glenn Davis will air on 1560 AM or ESPN 97.5 every Monday from 7-9 p.m. CT. Davis hosted his first All-Access show under the new partnership last night. All-Access featured interviews with Kinnear, Dynamo defenders Corey Ashe and Bobby Boswell and Dynamo midfielder Ricardo Clark. (We'll post the link to the podcast as soon as it's online).

Thank you to all the fans that came out to celebrate this new partnership. Here are a few reactions from the Twitterverse about last night's event:
