Telemundo and the National Football League announced today that they have extended their six-year partnership through the 2013 NFL season and, together with NBC Sports, will offer season-long, special Spanish-language coverage of the NFL. This unprecedented partnership establishes Telemundo as the only Spanish-language broadcaster to air “Sunday Night Football,” with award-winning broadcasting announcer, Jessi Losada hosting the games and René Giraldo and Edgar López calling the play-by-play action in Spanish.

“Telemundo’s continued partnership with the NFL is one that our viewers and advertisers expect and have embraced. Deportes Telemundo is committed to lead and innovate in our industry and this expanded relationship with the NFL and NBC Sports is another example of that commitment,” said Jorge Hidalgo, senior executive vice president of Telemundo Sports.

“With the support of NBC Sports, we are excited to expand our partnership with Telemundo to offer our Hispanic fans more NFL programming in Spanish,” said Peter O’Reilly, NFL vice president of fan strategy and marketing. “More than 32 million Hispanics watched the 2010 NFL season. It’s an exciting time for our fans as Telemundo expands NFL programming throughout the next three years.”
