Seattle Mariners back to KIRO Radio in 2009

All game announcers are expected to return as well to the Bonneville station and all are Mariners employees:
  • Dave Niehaus, Rick Rizzs, Dave Sims and Mike Blowers.

On the other hand, (Seattle PI): "The current pre- and post-game broadcasters -- including Shannon Drayer, KOMO's lead Mariner reporter and the station's Mariner blogger -- are employed by KOMO, so they could be looking for work if KIRO doesn't hire them."

  • When I see the word "landscape" regarding baseball today I've learned it's a euphemism for Bud Selig:
(Seattle PI): "As part of the new radio landscape, radio stations don't have the exclusivity they
  • once had over the audio of the game,
(KOMO's owner) Fisher dropped out of the running for a new contract last month, the previous contract having both helped the station define itself in the marketplace and prove very costly over the six-year run."....
  • (I still don't understand how every local station carrying a team didn't sue MLB when the satellite deal was made without their advance approval as it cost them millions. If they did they apparently lost). sm
