Sandusky Radio’s KKNW 1150 AM will air all 34 regular-season games, starting with the Saturday, June 6 season opener vs. the Sacramento Monarchs in Sacramento. Terms of the deal are undisclosed.
“As we enter our 10th year of Storm basketball in Seattle, we are pleased to continue our relationship with KKNW 1150 AM,” said Seattle Storm Chief Executive Officer Karen Bryant. “Our partnership with Sandusky Radio allows us to provide our fans with live Storm basketball action throughout the season.”
