iHeartMedia Seattle inks a partnership renewal with the Seattle Thunderbirds to continue airing T-Birds games for two more years, with a third-year option. All T-Birds regular season and playoff games can be heard on Sports KFNQ-AM (1090 KJR). Play-by-play talent Thom Beuning is entering his 18th season calling T-Birds games. Some regular season and playoff games could air on co-owned Sports KJR-AM (950).

"We are very happy to renew our partnership with iHeart Media Seattle," said T-Birds Vice President Colin Campbell. "They have been instrumental in growing our game and reaching new fans."

KFNQ will continue to carry a half-hour weekly Coach's Show with T-Birds head coach Matt O'Dette. The Coach's Show will be heard every Thursday during the season from 6-6:30pm and hosted by Beuning and will take a weekly in-depth look at the team. The Coach's Show will also feature Beuning talking with WHL and NHL connected hockey guests. The first Coach's Show this season will air on September 20.

"We are very much looking forward to continuing our partnership with the Seattle Thunderbirds," said iHeartMedia Seattle Senior VP/Programming Rich Moore. "The momentum around hockey in our community is exciting and we are glad to be a part of it. The T-Birds have a passionate fan base that we are lucky to service and to be in front of."

Also, as part of the partnership renewal, all iHeartMedia stations in Seattle will participate with the T-Birds promotional and giveaway nights this season.
