Salk will rejoin KIRO as Program Director on March 23 as well as host an as yet-to-be determined daypart.
“I could not be more excited about this unique opportunity and the new challenge of running the programming at 710 ESPN Seattle,” Salk said. “Even though I left Seattle last year, it never ceased being home. 710 ESPN Seattle is a nationally renowned sports station and this opportunity to lead it is an honor. The people in that building are special and I can’t wait to reconnect with all of them.”
710 ESPN Seattle vice president and general manager Dave Pridemore added: “It is gratifying to have Mike return to 710 ESPN Seattle and 710Sports.com as the program director and eventually as an on-air host. Mike knows the market, our people, the sports talk format, the art and business of radio, and the power and influence of digital media. We are privileged to have Mike at the helm of 710 ESPN Seattle.”
Salk announced his resignation from the WEEI afternoon show he was co-hosting with Michael Holley yesterday in preparation of the announcement of his move back to Seattle.
