KKNW 1150 AM, an alternative talk station, is also home to University of Washington’s Women’s Basketball and the Western Hockey League’s Seattle Thunderbirds.

This season the broadcast team will consist of Seattle radio veteran Dick Fain with the play-by-play duties and analysis from Adia Barnes, former Storm forward and member of the 2004 WNBA Championship team. Fain is no stranger to the Storm and has served in the capacity of sideline reporter, play-by-play announcer and color analyst. He has spent 11 years at SportsRadio 950 KJR, the past eight as sports director and host. Barnes will tip-off her second season with the Storm broadcast team after having played for the organization from 2002-04. Her broadcast background includes being a television analyst for NBA Entertainment during the 2006 FIBA Women’s World Basketball Championship in Brazil.

“We are proud to partner with this Seattle franchise,” said Vice President and General Manager of Sandusky Radio Marc Kaye. “The new ownership announcement along with another year of 1150 KKNW airing all the Storm games, make this a promising year as the team reaches for another WNBA title.”
