A new radio show on ESPN 710 AM is coming to the air waves on Saturdays from 6 a.m.-8:30 a.m. beginning April 11 called the “The Outdoor Line.”
The show will be hosted by former Seahawks Pro-Bowler and tournament angler Robbie Tobeck, fishing expert and biologist Tom Nelson and veteran fishing guide and charter captain Rob Endsley.
The show will discuss recreational opportunities available for Pacific Northwest outdoor enthusiasts through a unique blend of fishing, hunting, and sports talk.
The new outdoors radio show will also compete with KJR 950 AM Saturday morning “Northwest Wild Country,” hosted by Joel Shangle. Nelson who moves over to the new KIRO show was a co-host on KJR with Shangle.
A stand out athlete at Washington State University in the early 1990s, Tobeck went on to play 14 years in the NFL. Since retiring from the NFL, Tobeck has taken his competitive spirit to the water and now participates in fishing tournaments and derbies up and down the West Coast. In addition, he has also taken an active role in the Coastal Conservation Association and currently sits on both the state and national boards for the CCA.
Endsley is a full-time river guide and charter captain who operates in both Washington and Alaska and has well over 2,000 days logged on the water. Endsley is a founding member of the Wild Steelhead Coalition, a nonprofit group that backs the conservation, protection and continued study of wild steelhead.
Nelson is a graduate from The University of Washington’s School of Fisheries, where he was subsequently employed by the school’s Fisheries Research Institute as a Research Assistant for several Alaskan salmon research projects. Nelson has been featured in several episodes of Outdoor Channel’s “Western Sportsfishing.”
