/ Sept 2, 2004

The Seattle SuperSonics today announced that Matt Pitman will serve as the public address announcer at Sonics home games during the 2004-05 season. Pitman’s debut at the KeyArena microphone will begin Oct. 16 when the Sonics take on the Phoenix Suns in a preseason game.

“We are thrilled to have Matt at the microphone to call Sonics games for the fans at KeyArena,” said Sonics & Storm Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing Mike Humes. “Matt will help bring the game closer to the fans and build on the excitement of all the NBA action at the Key.”

Originally from Atlanta, Pitman moved to Seattle in 1991. A graduate of Interlake High School, Pitman joined Sports Radio 950 KJR AM in 2000 where he served as a sports reporter, a sports update anchor and a producer for various Sonics radio broadcasts. Pitman also acted as a studio host and sideline reporter for the WNBA’s Seattle Storm during the 2001 and 2002 seasons.

In February of 2003, Pitman was hired as the morning-drive sports anchor at KOMO 1000 AM. His duties at KOMO include general sports reporting and feature reporting for the Seattle Mariners.

“I’m so excited to be awarded this opportunity,” said Pitman. “I have been a Sonics fan for a very long time and to be able to do this job so close to the action and the fans is truly the chance of a lifetime.”
