KONG to Broadcast All Weekend Home Games; Storm Out Loud with Dick Fain Returns
The Seattle Storm Thursday announced the 2015 broadcast schedule, featuring all home weekend games (Saturday-Sunday) to be broadcast on KONG. All remaining weekday games will be broadcast on the Justice Network – Comcast channel 331 or digital 6.2.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the Storm to provide fans across the Puget Sound region a chance to watch all Storm home games on TV,” said Jim Rose, KING 5 Vice President and Station Manager.
Fans can follow every game through LiveAccess and the Center Court App on all mobile devices. The WNBA will again be streaming every WNBA game, home and away for only $14.99. Storm 360 Members receive a discounted LiveAccess price of $9.99, courtesy of Carter Subaru. Games on ESPN and KONG will be blacked out on LiveAccess.
“The new brand of Storm Basketball will be an exciting one to watch at KeyArena,” said Storm President & GM Alisha Valavanis. “If you are unable to make it to a game, we are proud to offer other ways for you to follow the team: television, streaming online or through the Center Court app and on social media.”
Elise Woodward, who was formerly a TV sideline reporter for the Sonics, and the color analyst for the Storm, rejoins the broadcast team in 2015 while Adia Barnes is on maternity leave. A proud member of the broadcast crew who called the Storm championship season in 2004, Woodward has been a color analyst for the University of Washington women’s basketball team since 2001.
Dick Fain is back for his eighth season as the voice of Storm Basketball. A graduate of the University of Washington, Fain is also a morning show co-host for 950 KJR AM.
In addition to calling the games, Fain will again host the weekly Storm Out Loud with Dick Fain radio show. Fain will recap the prior week’s games with Storm head coach Jenny Boucek and preview upcoming matchups. The show will oftentimes feature opposing players previewing matchups. Storm Out Loud with Dick Fain will air on Saturdays at 2 p.m., beginning June 6 and running through August 29 on 950 KJR AM and iHeartRadio.
