About Us

Thursday, September 1, 2016

SkagitRadio.com was created in 2007 by veteran Skagit County broadcasters and journalists Kris Drake, John Fasso, and Wade Tonkin, who shared a commitment to serve sports fans worldwide with live webcasts of a wider variety of Skagit County high school sports, other local sports, and local news than was being broadcast by Mount Vernon’s two small AM radio stations, a dying technology which our founders accurately predicted would soon be irrelevant and obsolete.

Along with traditional coverage of high school football and boys’ basketball, SkagitRadio.com covers sports previously ignored by area radio stations, including live play-by-play of girls’ volleyball and basketball, boys’ and girls’ wrestling, baseball, fast-pitch softball, and American Legion Baseball auto racing, all of which had either never aired locally or had not been heard since current SkagitRadioSports.com announcers originally broadcast those sports from the 1970’s through the 1990’s.

Our teams of award-winning, veteran announcers, including John Fasso and Scot Buchanan, share a Commitment To Excellence, and are dedicated to providing entertaining, informative, professional quality play-by-play of high school and other sports featuring Skagit County, WA teams from Burlington-Edison, La Conner, Sedro-Woolley, Concrete, and their opponents – locally and statewide.
