'The Washington ISP Sports Network is proud to deliver Husky football to fans throughout the Pacific Northwest, Canada and Alaska,' said Chris Bloomfield, general manager of the Washington ISP Sports Network. 'We look forward to working with our flagship, 950 KJR AM and we are pleased to announce new network stations KAZZ 107.1 FM in Spokane and KBYR 700 AM in Anchorage.'
In the Seattle area, 950 KJR's live coverage of Husky football begins four-and-a-half hours prior to game time with the one-hour 'Purple and Gold Saturday' show, hosted by award-winning broadcaster John Clayton. Three-and-a-half hours prior to gametime the 'Husky Honks' take the air for a two-and-a-half hour show hosted by Dave 'Softy' Mahler, former UW and NFL quarterback Hugh Millen and former UW assistant coach Dick Baird. The first 90 minutes of the show is called the 'Husky Tailgate Show' and airs on 950 KJR. Two hours prior to gametime, the trio transition to 'Husky Gameday' that airs on the entire network.
At all home games, the 'Husky Honks' pre-game shows will originate from the Western Washington Toyota tailgate area located in the E-12 parking area at the Southwest corner of Husky Stadium near the Waterfront Activities Center.
'950 KJR is excited to be the anchor for the Washington ISP Sports Network as we enter our sixth season as the flagship station,' said Rich Moore, program director for 950 KJR. 'It is also exciting to see the network continue to grow, giving all Husky fans great game day access.'
