Join Shawn Walli and Sean Boyd hosts of, On the Double with the Double S Xpress, as we talk sports with guests Paul Gackle, a San Francisco Examiner Sports Writer, and Chris Egan, KING5-TV Sports Anchor/Reporter.
Chris Egan joined the KING 5 sports department as a reporter and anchor in June of 2007. Prior to that, he worked for NorthWest Cable News as a sports anchor and producer on NorthWest Sports Tonight and co-hosted the Seahawks Fone Zone with former Seahawks quarterback Brock Huard. Egan worked as a news anchor and reporter in Boise, Idaho, where he won several awards for his story telling, and he was also a sports anchor at the NBC station in Medford, Ore.
Over the past few years Egan has been nominated for several Emmy awards. In 2009 and 2011 he won the Emmy for Sports Anchoring. In 2010 Egan received a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for sports reporting and in 1998 the Oregon Association of Broadcasters named Egan the " Sportscaster of the Year." Over the years Egan has enjoyed one on one interviews with Lance Armstrong, Arnold Palmer, Joe Namath, Cal Ripken Jr., and Michael Jordan, but he also loves covering high school sports where he gets a chance to meet the future stars.
Paul Gackle grew up in the newsroom and he’s determined to carry journalism into the future.
Gackle started covering sports for his family’s newspaper, the McLean County Independent, in North Dakota as a teenager and he recently reported on the Giants, 49ers and A’s as a columnist for the San Francisco Examiner.
In addition to the Examiner, Gackle has published work with the East Bay Express, the Winnipeg Free Press and PBS Frontline.
Growing up in Canada, Gackle fell in love with hockey. He blogged about the now-defunct San Francisco Bulls in his first iteration of The Gackle Report and was the team’s color analyst on for radio on KNBR.com and TV with Comcast Hometown Network.
