Seahawks Reveal Broadcast Plans

The Seattle Seahawks announced today their 2014 broadcast and network information. Play-by-play announcer Curt Menefee joins former Seahawks quarterback Brock Huard for Seahawks preseason telecasts on Q13 FOX. On radio, Steve Raible and Warren Moon will call the action with Jen Mueller as sideline reporter on 710 ESPN and 97.3 FM during the preseason and regular season.

The Seahawks 2014 preseason telecasts will feature limited interruption during the first quarter, giving one exclusive partner the opportunity to carry the advertising rights. The partner will be given five breaks to message in unique ways, including: messages from CEOs, corporate and community prerecorded videos, and interviews with key executives. Boeing and Washington’s Lottery will be featured in two of the games.

TV Talent (preseason)

Menefee begins his sixth season with the Seahawks broadcasting team as the play-by-play announcer for preseason telecasts. Menefee currently hosts FOX’s award-winning NFL pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday. Prior to taking over as full-time host in 2007, he called play-by-play for NFL and NFL Europe League games on FOX Sports and FSN.

Huard returns for his second season as analyst in the Seahawks TV booth. The former University of Washington star and Puyallup High School All-American has been calling college football for ESPN since August 2008, working as a college football analyst for ESPN and ABC’s Saturday games, and is also a studio analyst for the networks. Since 2009, Huard has co-hosted a sports radio morning show on 710 ESPN. After a standout high school career at Puyallup and a record-setting stint at the UW, Huard went on to play six years in the NFL, including four spent with the Seahawks, from 1999-2001 and 2004.

Radio Talent (preseason and regular season)

On 710 ESPN and 97.3 FM is Steve Raible returning for his 33rd season in the radio booth, his 11th as “Voice of the Seahawks” after 22 seasons as the Seahawks analyst. An original member of the Seahawks, Raible played wide receiver from 1976-81 and has missed only four games in the franchise’s history, either as a player or broadcaster after suffering a collapsed lung vs. Oakland in 1981. Following his football career, Raible joined KIRO-TV where he has won five local Emmy Awards including two for “Best Anchor.” He currently anchors KIRO-7 Eyewitness News at 5:00, 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.

Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon returns to the Seahawks radio team for his 11th season after serving as the preseason television analyst for the previous two seasons. After finishing a playing career in which he was nominated to an NFL-record eight straight Pro Bowls (1988-95), adding a ninth overall in 1997, Moon has become one of football’s leading broadcast analysts. He has spent recent years as a Westwood One radio analyst and sideline reporter and also spent time in the booth during Fox Sports Net’s Pac-12 College Game of the Week.

Jen Mueller enters her sixth season as sideline reporter. She is a 14-year sports broadcasting veteran and joined the Seahawks Radio Network in 2009. In addition to her work with the Seahawks, she has been a member of the ROOT Sports broadcast team since 2006.
