NEW NORTHWEST BROADCASTERS Sports KALE-A (ESPN AM 960)/KENNEWICK-RICHLAND-PASCO, WA will be the new TRI-CITIES affiliate for SEATTLE MARINERS baseball in 2009.
The TRI-CITY HERALD reports that KALE will succeed GAPWEST Talk KFLD-A as the local affiliate for the M'S, who are moving their flagship from FISHER News KOMO-A/SEATTLE to BONNEVILLE's new Sports KIRO-A (710 ESPN)/SEATTLE this season. Since KALE has been the broadcast home for the minor league TRI-CITY DUST DEVILS and has another year left on that deal, the HERALD reports that DEVILS games could air on KALE's sister Talk KTCR-A.
