Bonneville Seattle and the Seattle Seahawks have announced a multi-year contract extension which keeps 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM in place as the official radio broadcast partners of the Seahawks. The announcement was made Thursday by Seahawks President Peter McLaughlin on “Brock & Salk” on 710 ESPN and on KIRO Radio’s “Dori Monson Show”.
According to the agreement, the two Seattle spoken word stations will continue broadcasting all Seahawks games, including pre-game, play-by-play and post-game coverage. The partnership also includes special programming, joint community service projects and exclusive web content.
“With great pride, we have operated as the sole broadcast partner to the Seattle Seahawks since 1976 and recognize it has been a privilege for 710 ESPN Seattle and KIRO Radio 97.3 FM to serve as the radio home for the Seattle Seahawks for 42 exciting years,” said Dave Pridemore, VP/Market Manager, Bonneville Seattle Media Group. “In addition, with our several state of the art digital content platforms, a variety of programming and exclusive content, we will provide fans with many opportunities to join the ever-growing Seahawks conversation.”
Special programs such as “The Pete Carroll Show”, “Seahawks Huddle” and “Seahawks Weekly” will be featured on both stations throughout the NFL season. Exclusive Seahawks content will also be highlighted on Bonneville Seattle’s websites, MyNorthwest.com and 710Sports.com.
