  • Rafael Bracero is a Puerto Rican sportscaster. Bracero graduated from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez then known as Colegio de Artes Mecánicas with a degree in civil engineering, and then he joined Puerto Rico's Perez Perry Channel 11 to cover sports as their main reporter. The Perez Perry Network soon went bankrupt and then Bracero became the night sportscaster on WAPA-TV, where he performed for two years and a half. At WAPA TV, their night news edition sportscasters were considered second string to their afternoon news edition sportscasters, so Bracero would, for those two years and a half, perform under the shadow of Luis Rigual, WAPAs afternoon sportscaster. Nevertheless, he joined Rigual to cover boxing fights and other live sporting events, and in sports documentaries. When Rigual died in 1983, Bracero became his substitute on the afternoon news cast. Still as a WAPA sportscaster, Bracero worked with the transmissions of BSN basketball games, boxing telecasts, MLB baseball games and football games. In 1988, he assisted with WAPA's transmission of the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games.
