It’s a new day at 710 ESPN Seattle.

A revamped lineup for the station will begin on the air Monday, Sept. 30. The changes were announced throughout 710’s programming on Wednesday and Thursday.

Here’s what the new weekday lineup looks like:

The Blitz with Lydia Cruz: 6-7 a.m.
Danny and Gallant: 7-10 a.m.
John Clayton: 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
Tom, Jake and Stacy: 12-3 p.m.
Bob, Dave and Moore: 3-7 p.m.

Here are additional details on the main changes:

Stacy Rost, Jake Heaps join Tom Wassell in middays

With Bob Stelton heading to the afternoons with Bob, Dave and Moore and Dave “The Groz” Grosby moving on to a host emeritus position with the station, Tom Wassell was in need of two new co-hosts from noon to 3 p.m. every day. The answers were found within 710 ESPN Seattle’s own ranks.

The announcement was made Thursday afternoon that Wassell will be joined by Stacy Rost and Jake Heaps, both of whom come from roles with Seattle Sports at Night, every day on Tom, Jake and Stacy.

Rost is a Seahawks insider who has served as a writer and editor with 710Sports.com and host with 710 ESPN Seattle. Heaps was a Gatorade Player of the Year at Skyline High School before playing quarterback in college at BYU, Kansas and Miami (Fla.). He had stints with the Jets and Seahawks and joined the station in 2018.

Kyle Brown, previously of Brock and Salk, will produce.

Mornings belong to Danny and Gallant

Danny O’Neil jumped on Thursday morning with Brock and Salk to reveal not only that he and producer Jessamyn McIntyre are moving to 7-10 a.m., but that they will be joined by a brand new voice to the station. That would be Paul Gallant, who comes to 710 ESPN Seattle from Houston, where he has hosted the past seven years.

“Born in the northeast and raised in Florida, Paul is opinionated, fun, creative and polished. He’s looking forward to making Seattle home,” says 710 ESPN Seattle program director Mike Salk.

Brock Huard will join Danny and Gallant at 8 a.m. three times a week, and former WSU and Seahawks wide receiver Michael Bumpus will have a regular presence on the show as well.

Bob Stelton joins Dave Wyman and Jim Moore

The first change to the lineup was announced Wednesday afternoon on Danny, Dave and Moore. Bob Stelton will be moving from Bob, Groz and Tom to the 3-7 p.m. time slot, joining Dave Wyman (no link – he does not have Twitter) and Jim Moore on a new show called Bob, Dave and Moore.

Stelton has been with 710 ESPN Seattle since 2011, spending the entire time – until now – in the noon to 3 p.m. spot.

Maura Dooley will come over from John Clayton’s show to take Jessamyn McIntyre’s place as producer in the afternoon, while Curtis Rogers will produce John Clayton from 10 a.m. to noon.

Brock and Salk becomes a weekly podcast

As announced the previous week, Brock Huard and Mike Salk are taking their daily 710 ESPN Seattle show and turning it into a weekly podcast that will go online every Wednesday. Their final daily show will air Friday morning, and the first podcast will be available Wednesday, Oct. 2. More details on their change here.

The Groz steps aside

After 29 years as a radio host in Seattle, Dave “The Groz” Grosby stepped away from daily on-air hosting duties on Friday, Sept. 20. He is still on 710 ESPN Seattle every weekday doing a segment with John Clayton at 11:45 a.m., and he will pop in from time to time as a guest host. He also will have an expanded role with 710Sports.com.
