710 ESPN Seattle’s new daily lineup will also feature a brand new show with a Seahawks legend. Former Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Hasselbeck will be on the station every Wednesday from 9 to 10 a.m. for “The Matt Hasselbeck Show” alongside Mike Salk.
“No one tells a story quite like Matt and he uses his incredible experiences to paint an extraordinary picture of what’s happening in the NFL,” said Mike Salk, host of “The Mike Salk Show” (weekdays, 6 a.m.-10 a.m.). “He’s as entertaining, knowledgeable and insightful as anyone in this business and his Seahawks credentials are second to none. I can’t wait to talk with him every week!”
Hasselbeck played in the NFL for 18 years and for four different teams, but his best success came with the Seattle Seahawks, where he was a three-time Pro Bowler and led the franchise to its first Super Bowl appearance in 2005. Hasselbeck retired as the franchise leader in most passing categories, and he will be entering the Seahawks Ring of Honor this season.
After retiring from the NFL, Hasselbeck joined ESPN, where he can be seen every week on ESPN’s signature Sunday morning pregame show, “Sunday NFL Countdown.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to add one of the most illustrious players in Seahawks franchise history to our team here at 710 ESPN Seattle,” said Kyle Brown, 710 ESPN Seattle Program Director. “Matt is among the premier football analysts in the country and his indelible ties to Seattle make him the perfect addition to our Seahawks coverage.”
The first edition of The Matt Hasselbeck Show will air Wednesday, Sept. 15, just three days after the Seahawks’ 2021 season opener against the Indianapolis Colts. If you can’t catch the segment live, it will be podcasted on 710Sports.com.
