Bud Nameck is retiring after more than 30 years at KXLY. 

Bud Nameck has been bringing the news to Spokane households and car radios for over 30 years. On Friday, Nameck will begin his well-deserved retirement.

Nameck joined the KXLY family in 1982 and spent his first 13 years as the TV sports director. He then moved to radio and began his time as the program director and host for KXLY 920.

Nameck is a two-time Sportscaster of the Year recipient in the state of Washington. He was the radio voice of Washington Sate Cougar basketball and a member of the Cougar football broadcast team for years. Nameck was also one of five finalists nationally for the 2015 Marconi Award for Radio Medium Market personality. He’s also spent several years as the play-by-play voice for both Whitworth Pirate football and basketball.

Throughout his career, Nameck covered the winter and summer Olympics, MLP and NBA playoffs, and PGA Tour events.

Though he is a graduate of Santa Clara University, Nameck considers himself an honorary alum of WSU. He is an avid golfer and will have the chance to spend more time on the green now that is retiring.

Happy retirement, Bud, and thank you for all your years of hard work.
