KJR to broadcast Bellevue-Skyline football game

If you can’t make it to Husky Stadium for the big Bellevue-Skyline game on Sept. 7, which is part of the Emerald City Kickoff Classic, Sports Radio 950 KJR has you covered.

The station will air that game live.

All four ECKC games will be video broadcast online through the WIAA Network.

Here is the WIAA press release:

RENTON, Wash. – With an unprecedented amount of video coverage already in place for the 2013 Emerald City Kickoff Classic presented by Farmers Insurance, the WIAA announced that Sports Radio 950 KJR will broadcast the Bellevue versus Skyline game.

“This is a great addition for the ECKC and a major step for high school activities in the state,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said.  “KJR’s broadcast will enhance the exposure for the event in the greater Seattle area and will be a great experience for these student-athletes.”

KJR, an all-sports radio station in Seattle, has broadcasted the 3A and 4A football semifinals and Gridiron Classic in the past, and has supported high school sports with broadcasts and a weekly Friday night show.  In addition to 950am, the game can also be heard online at SportsRadioKJR.com, and on the iHeart RADIO mobile app.

“We are excited to be a part of ECKC and broadcast the much anticipated game between Bellevue and Skyline,” 950 KJR Program Director Rich Moore said. “Sports Radio KJR takes pride in supporting the WIAA and high school athletics  around our many communities.”

Each of the four games will be video broadcasted online on the WIAA Network.  The price to view the games live is $9.95, but free on-demand viewing will be available after the completion of the event.  ROOT SPORTS will also broadcast the Bellevue and Skyline game on a same-day replay at 9:30 p.m.

The ECKC returns to Seattle after spending one year in Cheney.  Football fans will get an early opportunity to visit the recently remodeled Husky Stadium as the 2013 Kickoff Classic will be the second event held at the new state-of-the-art venue.  The Washington Huskies home opener against the Boise State Broncos on August 31 will be the first game played in the new stadium.  The $250 million renovation places Husky Stadium atop the list of premier football facilities.

Tickets for the event are $15 for adults, while students and senior citizens are $10.  The ticket price includes admission into all four games.
