SHARE La Ley 107.9 FM to be Spanish Radio Home of the Bears

While La Ley 107.9 FM was introduced as the Bears’ new Spanish Radio partner, one of the station’s new broadcasters is already familiar with the team’s hottest duo.

Jose Luis Marquez “El Pitufo” worked in Denver, where he got to know Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler.

“I’m used to that combination,” Marquez said. “I saw them before the Redskins [preseason] game. It was like riding a bike.”

I can’t speak Spanish, but Marquez and partner Liz Liz “La Dama del Deporte” certainly brought a lot of energy when doing a mock play during a press conference Tuesday.

The Bears are the 14th NFL team to have Spanish radio broadcasts. The only other team in the NFC North to have Spanish play-by-play is the Minnesota Vikings.

So here’s a little more info on the two broadcasters:

* Marquez grew up in Sante Fe, where he played three years of varsity football at Capital High School.

* A graduate of the University of New Mexico, he’s also worked in Dallas and Albuquerque.

* Marquez is the 3-7 p.m. afternoon host for La Ley.

* It’s monumental,” Marquez said. “It’s huge only for La Ley but it’s a huge opportunity for my career.”

* Liz Liz grew up in Mexico City. And while she grew up following soccer, her family also was big into the NFL. Her father favored the San Francisco 49ers while many other family members liked the Dallas Cowboys.

* She was pumped about Mexico winning the Olympic gold medal. “That’s the biggest win in Mexico soccer history!” Not even Brazil has an Olympic gold medal,” she said.

* She’s done broadcasting work on the Chicago Fire and other major soccer tournaments, including the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

* I’m really excited,” she said, “and I’m happy with this opportunity.”
