94.5 KATS Agrees To 5-Year Radio Contract With Seahawks
94.5 KATS-FM will not only remain Yakima's home for rock music but it will remain home of the 12's.
Townsquare Media/Yakima General Manager Nik Krastins announced that both KATS and sister station 1280 KIT-AM have agreed to a five-year deal to broadcast all Seattle Seahawks games on the radio through the 2022 season.
“We at Townsquare Media Yakima are thrilled to continue our long standing partnership with the Seattle Seahawks to air on KIT and KATS. KIT has been Yakima’s Seahawks station since the inaugural season in 1976 and we are proud to be one of a very small number of stations that can make that claim. KATS was added last season as a simulcast partner and we are happy to extend the Seahawks reach to both the AM and FM dial, better serving our diehard fans up and down the Yakima Valley.”
Seahawks Radio Network Executive Producer Nasser Kyobe said, “We are excited to continue our longstanding relationship with KIT-AM and KATS-FM. We look forward to next year and many years to come”.
