  1. Maybe 710 ought to expand “The Outdoor Line” to 3 hours & have “Seattle Sports Saturday” go from 9-Noon. I hope management at the station is reading this.

  2. Was Clayton the older-sounding dude that would provide incidental commentary on the Seahawks game-day coverage?…He seemed so intelligent with his reporting…Then again, what does intelligence have to do with radio sports broadcasting?…It is mostly old jocks, talking with more old jocks!

      1. Why save the new guy in the morning? He is not good. Instead get rid of the older guys, who by the way are truly from the area.

  3. Suggestion to KIRO 710: Change format to Country Gold until covid19 is under control. Current ratings are terrible, so why not try it. I would listen out of sheer curiosity.
