The Greater Spokane League announced a new radio partnership with Queen B Radio and 700-AM ESPN/105.3-FM on Tuesday.
Starting in the fall of 2018, the GSL football game of the week will air on 700 ESPN/105.3 FM, followed in the winter with a boys and girls basketball schedule as well, GSL/WIAA District 8 Director Herb Rotchford said.
“We see a large upside for the GSL brand as games will appear on one station and on a regular basis,” Rotchford said via press release. “700 ESPN/105.3-FM is the leader in local sports programming and we couldn’t be more pleased with this new relationship.”
“We are very excited about our new partnership with the Greater Spokane League,” said Tery Garras, market manager of Queen B Radio Spokane. “This partnership goes hand in glove with our sports programming and our commitment to local community and sports.”
“High school sports has always been a big part of the KXLY Broadcast Group dating back to the creation of Friday Night Sports Extra in the mid-1980s and now will continue with live games each week during the high school sports season,” said 700 ESPN program director Dennis Patchin. “We can’t wait to get started to bring games and stories to our listeners.”
The GSL broadcast team will continue to be led by Larry Weir – play-by-play veteran and two-time Washington State Broadcaster of the year – and color commentator Paul Sorensen.
