Calabro and Wilkens on TV; Locke on radio
The Sonics will have 71 of their games televised by FSN. Play-by-play announcer Kevin Calabro, in his 20th year with the Sonics, will be paired with analyst Lenny Wilkens, a Hall of Fame player and coach.
Wilkens moves from the FSN studio to replace Craig Ehlo, whose contract was not renewed after two seasons.
Calabro will no longer handle the bulk of the radio broadcasts because the team sold the rights to KTTH-AM (770) and quit production of its simulcast. Former KJR-AM host David Locke will call games on the radio, but Calabro is expected to return for the 11 games not on FSN.
