Mike Salk is returning to 710 ESPN Seattle as the station’s program director and an on-air host, Bonneville Seattle announced Thursday.

Salk – who helped launch 710 ESPN Seattle in April 2009 and co-hosted “Brock and Salk” with Brock Huard for four years – will take over the station’s programming duties beginning later this month. Additionally, Salk will eventually return to the airwaves in a yet-to-be-determined time slot and will have a presence on 710Sports.com.

Salk returns to Seattle after spending the last year co-hosting the afternoon drive show at WEEI in Boston.

“I could not be more excited about this unique opportunity and the new challenge of running the programming at 710 ESPN Seattle,” Salk said. “Even though I left Seattle last year, it never ceased being home. 710 ESPN Seattle is a nationally renowned sports station and this opportunity to lead it is an honor. The people in that building are special and I can’t wait to reconnect with all of them.”

710 ESPN Seattle vice president and general manager Dave Pridemore added: “It is gratifying to have Mike return to 710 ESPN Seattle and 710Sports.com as the program director and eventually as an on-air host. Mike knows the market, our people, the sports talk format, the art and business of radio, and the power and influence of digital media. We are privileged to have Mike at the helm of 710 ESPN Seattle.”
