SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks today announced a new multi-year partnership with KING 5 to become the team’s Official Local Television Partner starting with the 2022 season.
“We are thrilled to officially welcome KING 5 back to the Seahawks family as we enter an incredible new multi-year partnership,” said Chuck Arnold, president, Seattle Seahawks and First & Goal Inc. “From our preseason broadcasts and weekly shows, to player and coach interviews that fans can’t see anywhere else, we are proud to partner with KING 5 to bring the best and most exclusive Seahawks television content to our fans across the region.”
KING 5 was most recently the Seahawks’ television partner from 2004-2011. Per the new agreement, KING 5 will have exclusive local broadcast rights for Seahawks preseason games and weekly shows.
