John Clayton, renowned ESPN writer and commentator, is expanding his role on 710 ESPN Seattle with a new local morning show.

“John Clayton” will air weekdays from 10 a.m. to noon on 710 ESPN Seattle beginning Monday, June 6. Clayton, a.k.a. “The Professor,” will also host an original weekly podcast and write for 710Sports.com. Clayton can still be heard every Saturday on “The John Clayton Show” from 9 a.m. to noon, as well as daily on “Brock and Salk” at 7:15 a.m. and “Danny, Dave and Moore” at 4 p.m.

“I’ve spent 30 years in the Pacific Northwest, and the time couldn’t have been better to expand my local presence here at 710 ESPN Seattle,” Clayton said. “I’m also excited to focus on the Seahawks, Mariners and the Seattle sports scene in an expanded role for 710Sports.com.”

Clayton, 62, joined ESPN as senior NFL writer and commentator in 1995 after working as an NFL and Seahawks beat writer for The News Tribune. He was inducted into the writers’ wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007. Clayton has hosted his weekly radio show on 710 ESPN Seattle since the station’s inception in 2009.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to include the most highly acclaimed local sports media personality to our local weekday lineup,” said Dave Pridemore, Vice President and General Manager of 710 ESPN Seattle. “With over 1.4 million Twitter followers and a Hall of Fame résumé, John Clayton will be a tremendous addition for both 710 ESPN Seattle and 710sports.com.”
