In his freelance work, Kwok served as a broadcaster and production assistant on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM and KDUS 1060 AM covering ASU’s men’s and women’s basketball. Outside of ASU, Kwok was the radio broadcaster for the MLB draft league team, the Frederick Keys, where he provided radio play-by-play and hosted the pregame and post-game shows.
Pouncey brings multiple years of experience in broadcast covering various Pacific Northwest sports. Concurrently with his Remix position, Pouncey will continue to serve in his long-time role at his alma mater Pacific University as a play-by-play announcer and a Color TV Analyst for Portland State University’s Men’s Basketball on ESPN Plus. Previously, Pouncey worked on the local sports radio show, 102.9/750 The Game, helping to provide coverage not only in writing but also serving as Co-Host of the “Justin and DeVon” show and as Board Operator for the broadcast of Seattle Mariners, Portland Timbers, and Oregon Ducks basketball games.
