KMIH 88.9 The Bridge To Broadcast Seafair Gold Cup and Blue Angels Air Show
Mercer Island, WA, July 27, 2023 - The student staff of KMIH 88.9 The Bridge, Mercer Island High School’s award winning radio station, will put their summer vacations on hold to once again launch Log Boom Radio and broadcast all the Seafair action live from the Stan Sayers pits August 4 through August 6.
Whether you are sitting on a boat, on your deck, in the grandstand, or anywhere in the world for that matter, you can tune in to 88.9 FM locally or stream at kmih.org to hear all the Unlimited Hydroplane races, including the Gold Cup Final, the Boeing airshow, and plenty of great summer music and student produced interviews and content in between the action on the water and in the air.
“We appreciate Seafair having us back to present Log Boom Radio again this year,” said KMIH general manager and Mercer Island High Broadcast Media adviser Joe Bryant. “Doing these live broadcasts is a great experience for our students and also helps connect them to a Seattle tradition that I have loved attending ever since I was a kid myself!”
“I am excited to see the Gold Cup being run on Lake Washington for the first time in decades and all of the best boats in the country will be out on the water for this one.”
For KMIH listeners and Mercer Island residents who would like to attend the races admission is free for Friday’s qualifying heats and you can get a 20% discount for Saturday and Sunday by entering the promo code Logboom23. The promo code applies to all levels of General Admission tickets including the 3 Day Championship Pass which gives you Pit Access.
And if you are celebrating Seafair away from the shores of Lake Washington Bryant promises that you won’t miss a thing if you keep it on 88.9.
“From the time the Fleet arrives on Tuesday until the Gold Cup trophy is awarded Sunday afternoon, Log Boom radio will be broadcasting around the clock with student produced content and a carefully curated playlist of sunny summer sounds. We hope you enjoy listening to Log Boom Radio as much as the students and I enjoy producing and programming it!”
