From Shock P.R….

The Spokane Shock and KXLY Radio Group have reached a radio agreement to broadcast all Shock games (home and away) on 700 ESPN THE TICKET for the 2010 season, the team announced today.

Dennis Patchin will call the play-by-play action and will be joined in the broadcasting booth by Keith Osso, who will provide color analysis.

During his time at KXLY, Patchin was also the voice of the Gonzaga Bulldogs on radio for four seasons, during which the Zags made three straight Sweet 16 appearances in the NCAA Tournament.

Osso began his broadcast career at KXLY4 News as a sports photographer in May of 2003 and was promoted to sports reporter in July of 2005. Keith is a Spokane native who has lived here his entire life except a short stint in college.

“We are excited to start the new season with a great broadcast group in KXLY” Shock Owner/CEO Brady Nelson said. “It is a great partnership and we are pleased to have Dennis Patchin and Keith Osso as our broadcasters.”

THE TICKET’S coverage of all games will begin 30 minutes prior to each game with the AT&T pre-game report.

“I am thrilled to have one of Spokane’s premier sports franchises on 700 ESPN THE TICKET,”   Marketing Manager from the KXLY Radio Group, Brian Paul said. “We are look forward to more winning football, and a very long and successful relationship with the Spokane Shock.
