Cougar Sports Move To 710 ESPN
Seattle area Cougar Football and Men's Basketball fans have been angry for the past few years. WSU Sports have been heard on local radio stations like 770 and 1090, neither station known for it's sport's coverage. This coming season, Cougar Sports are moving to 710 ESPN, the former KIRO news radio. This means the Cougar Broadcasts will go head to head with Husky Broadcasts on 950 KJR, Seattle other sports station. It should be more radio coverage for WSU athletics.
Veteran Broadcaster, Bob Robertson will continue to do play by play on the football broadcasts, but former Coach Jim Walden was removed by Athletic Director Bill Moos. Walden will be replaced by Bud Nemeck (the basketball play by play announcer) and Shawn McWashington, who was a stand out running back on the 1997 Cougar Rose Bowl team.
