Mike Salk Exits WEEI, Returns To 710 ESPN Seattle As PD/Host

After a year co-hosting afternoons at ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-F/BOSTON, MIKE SALK has exited the station to rejoin BONNEVILLE Sports KIRO-A (710 ESPN SEATTLE)/SEATTLE as PD and host. SALK's time slot in SEATTLE is yet to be determined; he previously co-hosted on the station with BROCK HUARD before heading to BOSTON to co-host with MICHAEL HOLLEY.
SALK, who will fill the PD slot left open when BRIAN LONG exited to join CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOGO-A and Sports KLSD-A/SAN DIEGO, said, “I could not be more excited about this unique opportunity and the new challenge of running the programming at 710 ESPN SEATTLE. Even though I left Seattle last year, it never ceased being home. 710 ESPN SEATTLE is a nationally renowned sports station and this opportunity to lead it is an honor. The people in that building are special and I can't wait to reconnect with all of them.”
KIRO VP/GM DAVE PRIDEMORE added, “It is gratifying to have MIKE return to 710 ESPN SEATTLE and 710SPORTS.COM as the program director and eventually as an on-air host. MIKE knows the market, our people, the sports talk format, the art and business of radio, and the power and influence of digital media. We are privileged to have MIKE at the helm of 710 ESPN SEATTLE.”
At WEEI, the station will use a rotating list of co-hosts with HOLLEY for now.
