Ep. 289 – Ralph Morton (Executive Director, Seattle Sports Commission)
In the last 10 years, Ralph Morton has helped initiate one of the most active sports commissions in the United States. As Executive Director of the Seattle Sports Commission, Morton has been in some of top dealings for major league teams, area data and political conversations over publicly-funded stadiums and arenas. Morton also helps bridge the game for major outside sports promotions that want help accessing the market and media when putting on events in the city of Seattle. Morton talks about the Seattle Super Sonics’ departure and its effect on Queen Anne Hill around Key Arena, as well as the history of the Seattle Sports Commission throughout the years.
