Clay Huntington was a Pacific Northwest radio and TV pioneer. He started his radio career in 1941 with a 15-minute sportscast. His play-by-play broadcasts of baseball, football, and basketball games were featured on a half dozen Puget Sound stations for over 50 years. His television sportscasts covering football,
baseball, basketball, and hockey for nearly 40 years were carried on a number
of Northwest TV stations including channels 11 and 13.
His radio station ownership started in 1960 and has included four stations, all
with the KLAY call letters. The current station, 1180 AM, began operation in 1991
and features local and national talk and news plus complete coverage of local
sports, including Tacoma Rainier's baseball, Pacific Lutheran University football and basketball, plus selected local high school football and basketball games.
Called Tacoma's all-purpose ambassador and sports treasure, his radio and
television sportscasting career extended a span of nearly 60 years. His other
accomplishments included a five-year stint as a sports writer for the old Tacoma
Times, a daily newspaper that suspended publication in 1949. He also was one
of the founders of the Tacoma Athletic Commission in the 1940's. His signature
sports feat was the establishment of the State of Washington Sports Hall of Fame.
