SEATTLE THUNDERBIRDS junior hockey will air on CLEAR CHANNEL Active Rock KFNK (FUNKY MONKEY 104.9)/SEATTLE this season. The WESTERN HOCKEY LEAGUE team, which is moving into the new KENT EVENTS CENTER for the new season, will be heard on KFNK, its HD RADIO stream, and on the station's Internet stream for all regular season and playoff games.
"We are very excited to enter into this partnership with CLEAR CHANNEL Seattle," said team VP COLIN CAMPBELL. "We are looking forward to having a presence on all six CLEAR CHANNEL stations in the SEATTLE market. We are also pleased CLEAR CHANNEL will have a presence at the KENT EVENTS CENTER."
"The partnership between THE MONKEY and the T-BIRDS is more than a great match, it's the perfect fit," added FUNKY MONKEY PD SHELLIE HART, "and for the games to be available and heard on all of Funky Monkey's broadcasting platforms (over-the-air, HD Radio and online) is HUGE! Rock and hockey on the same radio station - very cool!"
