Longtime South Florida sports radio host Orlando Alzugaray, a.k.a. The Big O, has joined Miami FC as their new public address announcer for home games. He was the public address announcer for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers for several seasons up until last year.
Alzugaray is currently the midday host at Miami Sports Radio 560 WQAM-AM and has held that post since August 2014. Prior to his second tenure at WQAM, he was the afternoon host on 640 Sports WMEN-AM from October 2010 until August 2014.
He first got noticed locally as a sports reporter for News Radio 610 WIOD-AM and 940 WINZ-AM in 1993 and stayed there for two years. Alzugaray moved to San Francisco and hosted a sports show on the first national Spanish language sports station in the United States. The organization went out of business in less than a year.
The Big O returned to Miami for his first tenure at WQAM as he worked as a sports reporter and weekend host. He was elevated to weekday host and Miami Dolphins pregame host during the 2000s. Alzugaray was shifted from middays to late mornings in July 2010 and then to evenings in September 2010.
