Colon stands as the only Puerto Rican broadcaster in the NBA today.
The Magic also has a dedicated Spanish website, elorlandomagic.com, while Chase offers Spanish online banking for consumers and business owners through chase.com/espanol and customer service and support in Spanish at its branches and call centers.
Since its inception in 1989, the Magic has been committed to the Hispanic community and has instituted a variety of initiatives to reach its multicultural fan base throughout Central Florida. Under the leadership of Magic CEO Alex Martins, the Orlando Magic created a multicultural insights focus in 2008. The team’s goal is to create an inclusive environment in which community partners, fans and employees feel welcome, valued and appreciated.
