In a stunning turn of events, it was announced that 790 AM The Ticket will permanently cease broadcasting on Monday.

790 AM The Ticket has been a major South Florida sports radio station for many years. It will be replaced by a Spanish news channel, according to a report by Marc Caputo.

Americano Media recently struck a deal with Audacy to host terrestrial broadcasts. This is a change from the company’s satellite radio strategy.

Americano Media Founder and CEO Ivan Garcia-Hidalgo released a statement on the latest decision.

“This is the first of many terrestrial radio syndication deals for Americano, and we look forward to a strong partnership with Audacy,” said Garcia-Hidalgo.

Fans will never forget all the great moments of 790 AM The Ticket.

“Shit. The Ticket brought to life the greatest show ever [Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz]. We are eternally grateful,” one person tweeted.

“I knew this would happen the second they announced the merger, but still…sad,” another person wrote.

It’s the end of an era for sports radio fans in South Florida.
