ESPN West Palm Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Good Karma Brands is celebrating 20 years of sports talk in the West Palm Beach market on WUUB-FM “ESPN West Palm.” GKB says it launched sports talk on WEFL-AM in 2003. “Today, ‘ESPN West Palm’ includes ‘ESPN 106.3,’ ‘Deportes Radio 760 AM,’ ESPN West Palm on (TV outlets) WPTV and WFLX, the Boca Raton Bowl, The High School “Top 63” Awards as well as other digital assets and events. Over the past two decades, ESPN West Palm recognized high school athletes, covered local teams, partnered with area businesses to help achieve their goals, gave back to the community, and ultimately defined West Palm Beach as a true sports town.” GKB West Palm market manager Stephanie Prince says, “Up until 2003, West Palm Beach was the largest market in the country without a sports radio station of its own. We are proud of the team, and the relationship we’ve established with our fans via the audio, event, coverage and digital platforms we have built. We are excited to celebrate and give back to the community by donating $20,000 to various local charities.” The station began a 20-hour celebratory broadcast at midnight (3/3) and Mayor Keith James is declaring today ESPN West Palm Day to recognize the station’s impact in the town in which it operates.
