Jamie Council is one of the most knowledgeable and recognizable sports media personalities in the Tri-Cities, and she’s on 1340ESPN! Now with her new local sports magazine program….THE SPORTS COUNCIL! Thursdays from 12:00pm to 12:30m on the Tri-Cities Leader In Sports.
The Sports Council is a Washington-based show focused on sports in the Pacific Northwest.
Jamie will give you some of the more unique sports stories in the PNW. With a personality shaped by sports, and a professional background of traditional sports media, Jamie found that the stories she was most passionate about covering were the ones that might not otherwise be told of the good surrounding the greatness of the sports world.
The Pacific Northwest is home to some of the best hiking, the wine world’s hidden secret, and a mecca for sports. The Sports Council hopes to find the traditional and non-traditional sports stories in the back yard of those in the upper-left USA to show the passion that lies behind the dedication of the sports world.
Catch the show Thursdays at 11:30AM live on 1340ESPN, on-demand at 1340espnradio.com, whereever you get your podcasts by searching for the “Sports Council”, or now also available via YouTube.
