Regarding the ground breaking Spanish Wing Bowl broadcast, Ricardo said “Es un honor para mi de ser la primera voz en espanol de este gran evento conosido como “Wing Bowl 22″! Ni Serie Mundial del beisbol o juegos de postemporada de la NFL tienen el impacto mundial de la batala entre hombre contra alitas de pollo. Sera un momento monumental para mi carrera y para la fanaticada hispana. Le pondre el sazon y picante nuestro a cada mordida”.
For the English speaking audience, “It’s an honor for me to be the first Spanish language voice of this grand event known as “Wing Bowl 22”! Neither the World Series in baseball nor the postseason action of the NFL have the worldwide impact of the battle between Man vs Chicken Wing. This will be a monumental moment in my career as well as for the huge Hispanic fan base. I pledge to add the spice and heat of our culture to each mouthful,” said Ricardo.
A radio veteran of 33 years and one of the country’s most high profile bilingual air personalities, WIP host Rickie Ricardo has been the play by play announcer for the Philadelphia Phillies Spanish broadcasts for the past 7 years.
