On the heels of the announcement that John Focke would depart from his post as Minnesota Lynx broadcaster to take a new job with the Charlotte Hornets, the team announced that industry veteran Sloane Martin would handle play-by-play in Minnesota.

In addition, the team announced that country station 106.1 Bob FM would once again be the flagship radio station for Lynx broadcasts in 2019.

Martin has compiled an extensive resume in the Twin Cities, including covering the Lynx last year for The Athletic and work with Entercom News/Talk station 830 WCCO.


I am proud to join an organization that values promoting women’s basketball and the stories of these athletes as much as I do.
