MIAMI - The Florida Marlins have teamed with WDLP-22 and FSN Florida to give fans a full hour of Marlins television programming every Sunday night on WDLP-22.

Marlins Semanal, a half-hour, Spanish-speaking television show hosted by Raul Striker Jr., will air every Sunday at 8 p.m., followed by FSN Florida's well established program Marlins Weekly, which starts at 8:30 p.m., on WDLP-22. Both shows will run throughout the 2005 regular season.


Marlins Semanal, which made its debut with six episodes last year, will air a full schedule this season. Each show recaps the highlights of the week's Marlins games and features in-depth interviews with Marlins players and coaches, baseball personalities and Latin players around the Majors. Marlins Semanal gives fans an all access look, as Striker Jr. takes viewers beyond the playing field to discover the Marlins commitment to the Hispanic community in South Florida.


Raul Striker Jr. is currently in his third year as the television play-by-play announcer, alongside Cookie Rojas, for all Spanish SAP broadcasts of Marlins home games on FSN Florida. Striker Jr. has covered a wide variety of sporting events including the 1997 and 2003 Marlins championship seasons, NFL playoffs, FIFA World Cup, and the Sugar Bowl, Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl.


WDLP-22 is a full-service Spanish-language station that features news, information and entertainment. WDLP-22 is the local voice of South Florida's Hispanic community, "where viewers are the stars." The station reaches more than 1.25 million households via cable and over 850,000 households over-the-air, as coverage extends from Key West to Boca Raton. WDLP is also carried on DirecTV and the DishNetwork satellite systems.
