Orlando Magic cut ties to 3 longtime radio broadcasters
ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Magic have parted ways with three longtime radio announcers, The Athletic has learned.
Team officials have notified radio play-by-play announcer Dennis Neumann, radio color analyst Richie Adubato and Spanish-language radio play-by-play announcer Joey Colón that their contracts will not be renewed.
Neumann, Adubato and Colón worked a total of 66 seasons as Magic broadcasters.
“Our business, as well as many others like us, continue to be impacted by the pandemic,” Magic CEO Alex Martins said in a statement to The Athletic.
“We have had to make some very hard business decisions in these unprecedented times, and we made the difficult decision to reorganize our efforts in regard to radio. Moving forward we will simulcast our radio and television game broadcasts. To those impacted, we’ve provided fair severance, outplacement services and health and wellness options.”
