MOSCOW, Idaho – Idaho Vandals Sports Properties, the multimedia rights holder for University of Idaho Athletics and property of Learfield Sports, announced today that Chris King has been named the Vandals’ new voice for men’s basketball beginning with the upcoming 2013-14 season.

“I’m thrilled for this opportunity and can’t wait to be courtside calling the action this season,” said King.  “It’s incredibly exciting to return to the Palouse, and I’m honored to be a part of Vandal athletics.”

King comes to Moscow by way of Boise, where he served two years as the voice of Boise State’s women’s basketball on KTIK-AM 1350.  For the last two seasons, he also has been play-by-play announcer on 870 AM for all 76 games of the Tri-City Dust Devils, Colorado Rockies’ Short-Season Single-A affiliate in Pasco, Wash.  Additionally, he has served as radio announcer for the Wenatchee AppleSox collegiate summer baseball team and as lead broadcaster for the 2011 West Coast League All-Star Game.

“We’re excited about Chris joining us to call men’s basketball and know he brings valuable experience to the Idaho Vandals Sports Network,” said Ann Brett Strickland, general manager for Idaho Vandals Sports Properties, which also oversees Idaho Athletics’ radio network as part of its multimedia rights relationship.
