The Alliance of American Football League’s Salt Lake Stallions announced a partnership with ESPN 700. The Broadway Media owned station will serve as the Stallion’s flagship radio partner during their upcoming inaugural season which begins one week after the Super Bowl.
ESPN 700 will broadcast all home and away games for the Stallions which will feature play-by-play announcer Dave Fox. Fox will be partnered with Frank Dolce and Steve Tate as the broadcast’s analyst and sideline reporter.
Dolce and Tate are both former football players for the University of Utah, each with local radio and television experience. Dolce was the school’s starting quarterback from 1991-92, while Tate was an all-conference safety before graduating in 2007. For a decade, play-by-play voice Dave Fox called football and basketball games for the University of Utah along with serving as the lead sports anchor on Salt Lake’s CBS affiliate, KUTV, for more than 30 years.
“ESPN 700 and Broadway Media are thrilled to welcome the Salt Lake Stallions to our broadcast team,” said Bill Riley, station manager and on-air host. “It’s a thrill to partner with an outstanding football organization in its inaugural season. We look forward to bringing the football fans in Salt Lake City a great football product on Utah’s best sports radio station.”
In addition to each game-day broadcast on ESPN 700, the station will offer fans a weekly coaches show every Tuesday from 6 – 7 pm, hosted by Dolce and Fox.
“We’re excited to partner with the local ESPN family, and provide their loyal listeners with inside access to the team throughout the season,” said Stallions Team President Tyler Howell. “ESPN 700 and the Broadway Media family have supported us and the Alliance of American Football bringing professional football to Salt Lake City since day one.”
The Alliance of American Football League was founded by NFL Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian and TV producer Charlie Ebersol, son of former NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol. The league kicks off with eight teams playing a 10-week regular season schedule beginning February 9th on CBS.
