RENTON, WASH. – The Seattle Sounders FC, Disney Corporation and Belo today announced the program schedule for the inaugural Sounders SuperSearch presented by Disney.

The tryouts from three Washington cities will air on Evening Magazine and Northwest Sports Tonight on three consecutive Thursdays; January 8 (Spokane), January 15 (Seattle) and January 22 (Yakima). The shows will be broadcast across all of Belo’s local properties including: KING 5 (NBC), KONG 6/16 and NWCN.
