WJFD 97.3 in Massachusetts will be bringing the Eurovision 2019 Grand Final to listeners in the United States.
While Logo TV may not be broadcasting Eurovision, American listeners will be able to tune into WJFD 97.3’s coverage of the Grand Final from Tel Aviv, Israel. WJFD 97.3 FM is the only FM-based Portuguese radio station in North America and the biggest FM station outside of Portugal broadcasting in the Portuguese language.
Ewan Spence will be commentating on the contest from Tel Aviv, joined by Samantha Ross and Bernardo Pereira. The broadcast planned to be live, however this is dependent on Portuguese football finishing as scheduled, before the contest goes to air in Tel Aviv.
This is the second year that the Eurovision Song Contest has been brought to radio listeners on WJFD 97.3. In 2018, the station also broadcast the contest to listeners across New England.
