After telling longtime color analyst Jim Walden last week he would not be working in the broadcast booth anymore, Washington State athletic director Bill Moos on Monday revealed a new broadcast team for the Cougars.

Bob Robertson will remain at the helm "as long as I'm at Washington State," said Moos on 710 AM in Seattle on Monday. He will be joined by Bud Nameck, who has called WSU basketball for the past several years, and former Fab Fiver receiver Shawn McWashington. Jessamyn McIntyre, from 710 AM, will be a sideline reporter.

The announcement of the new broadcast team came as Moos also announced that 710 AM would be the home of Cougar sports in the Seattle area, beginning with the basketball season this coming fall.

Moos also touched on the development of the new Pac-12 network. The network, which will be comprised of six regional networks, is on track to be launched in fall. Details about distribution – which systems will carry the channel, and where – are still being worked out.

Washington State and other member institutions probably will not see the financial benefits of the new network until several years into the deal because of the numerous startup costs associated with building a new TV station.
