For Sunday afternoon's Chicago Bears game against the St. Louis Rams, WLEY-FM/La Ley 107.9, the flagship home for all Spanish language broadcasts of Chicago Bears games this season, will be broadcasting not just on their radio station, but nationwide via SiriusXM satellite radio. The broadcast will also be available worldwide via the Internet.
The NFL has approved of the Chicago Bears providing SiriusXM satellite radio a live audio feed of of the WLEY-FM Spanish language radio broadcast of Sunday's game. This is being done in accordance with the NFL's contract agreement with SiriusXM.

Not only will Bears fans wanting to hear Sunday's game in Spanish be able to hear the broadcast locally in Chicago, but now they can hear it anywhere.
This is a huge opportunity for WLEY-FM and the sponsors of Sunday's broadcast to reach an audience larger and wider than ever before.
At the end of last month, the Chicago Bears, the Spanish Broadcasting System (SBS), and SBS's WLEY-FM announced
that every Chicago Bears game this 2012-2013 season, both home games and away games, will be heard in Spanish on La Ley 107.9. Announcing the games are the new broadcasting team of Jose Luis Marquez (aka "El Pitufo" or "The Smurf") and Liz Liz (aka "La Dama del Deporte" or "The Lady of Sport.")
