Introducirles A William Kulik
Spanish Béisbol Productions & Spanish
Football Network
Founder/President

William Kulik is renowned in the Hispanic community as “El Gringo Malo.” Greatly respected for his high-level knowledge of sports and intimate connections with a wide range of professional athletes, Bill Kulik has impressive sway with the sports-loving Hispanic community. His natural oratory skills are what attract his audiencia, but his mastery of the Spanish language -- speaking it as if it were his first -- is what gives him authentic influence among loyal Hispanic fans.

Mr. Kulik established the Spanish Béisbol Network (SBN) in the spring of 2001 with broadcast rights for the Boston Red Sox games. In just a few short years, he grew the company from a start-up operation to a renowned, widespread network, obtaining the rights to the Philadelphia Phillies in 2005 and the Washington Nationals in 2008, as well as doing the play-by-play for four World Series, including the 2004 Red Sox and 2008 Phillies victories.

Having worked as a sports columnist for a local Hispanic newspaper, Kulik’s baseball prestige is grounded in real-world, fast-pace experience. His extensive expertise of America’s favorite pastime and assertive commentary style have earned him a second creative nickname amongst his passionate Hispanic followers: “The Professor.”

Kulik held several senior positions in the communications and cable industries prior to establishing SBN. After grad school, he joined Trident Communications and was instrumental in negotiating contracts with movie studios.

Bill also helped establish the $40 million pay-per-view hotel television business, New England Sports Network (NESN), and oversaw the construction of communication towers. Having successfully grown Trident and selling it in 1987 for large profit, Kulik joined AT&T Broadband (modern-day Comcast), where he rose from Community Relations Manager to Director of Marketing.

Mr. Kulik earned a B.A. in Marketing from Bryant College and attended graduate school at Boston College.

Main Audiences: Business groups, agencies and Chambers.

Marketing Focus: Buying power of Hispanic market and complexity of this multi-faceted, internally diversified community.
