Seattle Sounders - Broadcasting

Broadcasting

Seattle Sounders FC matches are televised locally in English on either KING-TV or KONG-TV, and nationally on NBC, NBC Sports Network, ESPN and Fox Soccer. KONG-TV also airs a program devoted to interviews, highlights, and other features on Sunday evenings called Sounders FC Weekly. English television and radio broadcasts are called by former BBC announcer Ross Fletcher, who does play-by-play, and former Sounders FC goalkeeper Kasey Keller, who does color commentary. Matches are televised in Spanish on THIS-TV (KOMO-TV 4.2) with Jaime Mendez and Hugo Alcaraz-Cuellar calling the action. On radio, Sounders FC matches are aired in English on KIRO-FM and in Spanish on Ke Buena AM.

Former Seattle SuperSonics announcer Kevin Calabro and former U.S. soccer star Greg Vanney called the play-by-play for the local broadcasts during the Sounders' inaugural season in 2009. However, they were replaced by former BBC cricket and general sport commentator Arlo White for the 2010 and 2011 seasons, who called English language broadcasts without a partner. In 2012, White was hired by NBC Sports Network to be the voice of their soccer coverage. That led to Fletcher being paired with Keller in the broadcast booth for the 2012 season.

Famous quotes containing the word broadcasting:

    We spend all day broadcasting on the radio and TV telling people back home what’s happening here. And we learn what’s happening here by spending all day monitoring the radio and TV broadcasts from back home.
