June 7, 2016 at 10:28 AM (PT)
BONNEVILLE Sports KIRO-A (710 ESPN SEATTLE)/SEATTLE is adding a local show for evenings, hosted by former midday "JUSTIN AND GEE" and evening/podcast "THE BARBERSHOP" host GEE SCOTT. SCOTT's new 7-9p (PT) show will launch JUNE 13th; he will also write for 710SPORTS.COM and his THURSDAY show will double as "SEAHAWKS WEEKLY" during the football season. "JUSTIN AND GEE" was dropped when the station added a weekday show for weekend host and ESPN football commentator JOHN CLAYTON; JUSTIN MYERS has exited the station.
“I’m looking forward to taking listeners behind the curtain to see what it’s really like in the player’s locker room,” said SCOTT, who got started in local sports when his mobile car washing business picked up the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS as clients, leading to his joining former players MARCUS TRUFANT and TERRY HOLLIMON on "THE BARBERSHOP." “This new opportunity will allow SEATTLE sports fans to feel more connected to their favorite players than ever before.”
“This show will be a great complement to the rest of the 710 ESPN SEATTLE lineup,” said PD MIKE SALK. “GEE has a special relationship with both listeners and players. He is so adept at bringing those two worlds together in a compelling way.”
