Seattle’s “Brock and Salk” is becoming the latest radio show to morph into a podcast. The daily morning show on Bonneville sports “710 ESPN” KIRO Seattle will come to an end on Sept. 27. Mike Salk and Brock Huard will instead produce the weekly Brock and Salk Podcast, which is set to debut Oct. 2.
“We’re going to venture into uncharted territory – at least for us,” said Salk. “I don’t think either of us has any interest in not talking about sports with each other, but the way you’re going to consume the show is going to change.”
Salk recently took on new programming responsibilities as Director of Programming, overseeing news/talk KIRO-FM (97.3) and talk “AM 770” KTTH in addition to “710 ESPN.” Huard is a college football analyst on Fox. Both men also point out they’re also raising families.
“In this process over the last year, we sat down and said ‘how can we still make this work?’” Huard explained in an announcement on the “710 ESPN” website. “There’s no way that we could lose the connection we have with all of you. There’s just simply no way. We’re not leaving. We’re not done. We’re not finished,” he told listeners.
KIRO said both Brock and Salk will still host regular segments on the radio station. It also has not yet said what it plans to air in morning drive once the hosts become podcasters.
