Sportscaster Copán Álvarez has joined the NBC Deportes team. He’ll work as play-by-play anchor for FIFA World Cup Events.
His first day on air was last Sunday, May 24.
Copán joins Telemundo/NBC Deportes from his native Honduras, where he was a sports anchor at Televicentro for the past 13 years.
The network also announced the roster of on-air talent that will cover the FIFA events that Telemundo Network, NBC Universo and NBCDeportes.com will broadcast in 2015.
Andrés Cantor will lead the team that includes Carlos Hermosillo and Sammy Sadovnik, Manuel Sol, Frederik Oldenburg, Ana Jurka, Leti Coo, Kaziro Aoyama, Francisco Cuevas, Daniela Rodríguez, Pablo Aguabella, Copán Álvarez and Andrea Rodebaugh.

I never liked Andres Cantor as a play by play and frankly it was refreshing not seeing/hearing him in the last couple of world cups. I’m willing to see what Mr. Alvarez brings to the table. I’ll just mute when Cantor is on. 😛
