The Groz’s final show on Bob, Groz and Tom airs Friday at noon

Friday afternoon on 710 ESPN Seattle will be an event 29 years in the making.
After nearly three decades in Seattle radio, Dave “The Groz” Grosby will broadcast for the final time as a daily host. He will take the air one for one last show on Bob, Groz and Tom in a special sendoff for the local radio legend.
Expect to hear from names from his past like Kevin Calabro and Steve Raible, and you won’t want to miss one more segment of The Groz with the co-host he’s most identified with, Mike “Gas” Gastineau. There of course will be plenty to celebrate with his longtime co-hosts at 710 ESPN Seattle, Bob Stelton and Tom Wassell, as well.
If a radio isn’t available to you, there are several ways to listen or watch Grosby’s final show online:

This isn’t goodbye
While Friday will be The Groz’s last show as part of Bob, Groz and Tom, you will still be able to hear his familiar booming voice going forward on the 710 ESPN Seattle airwaves. Grosby will continue his regular 11:45 a.m. segment Monday through Friday with John Clayton, and he will pop in from time to time as a guest host or otherwise on the station. He will also have an expanded role as a contributor to 710Sports.com.
Grosby began his Seattle radio career in 1991 with 950 KJR. He was with KIRO AM from 1993 until 1996, when he returned to KJR. He joined 710 ESPN Seattle in 2010 to start Bob and Groz with Bob Stelton. The show became Bob, Groz and Tom with the addition of Tom Wassell as a co-host in 2015.
Grosby has also been the voice of Seattle University men’s basketball on 710 ESPN Seattle and AM 770 KTTH.
And we don’t need to tell you this, but Groz has seen it all in Seattle sports – whether it was sitting behind home plate and doing the postgame show during the 1995 Mariners’ run in the playoffs, to covering all of the successful Sonics teams in the 90s, to witnessing the record-breaking 2001 M’s and the Super Bowl-winning Seahawks. And if there’s a story to be told, The Groz is who you want to tell it.
