RENTON, Wash - The Seattle Seahawks have hired Jordan Babineaux and Jackie Montgomery as Digital Media Hosts, the club announced today. Babineaux and Montgomery take over for Tony Ventrella, who retired after eight seasons with the club.
Babineaux returns to Seattle after playing seven years for the Seahawks (2004-10). As a member of the Seahawks, he recorded 411 tackles, 4.0 sacks, eight forced fumbles, 10 interceptions, 32 passes defensed, and a touchdown, while displaying a knack for the big play that earned him the nickname "Big Play Babs." After nine NFL seasons, Babineaux retired following the 2012 season and began working as an analyst on the NFL Network from 2012 to 2014 and joined Seahawks pre and postgame shows on TV and radio for the 2015 season.
Montgomery has worked with Seattle Sounders FC the last four years in a variety of roles after joining the team in August 2012. Montgomery currently serves as the Sounders' pre and postgame host for the team's local TV broadcast on KCPQ and JOE TV. In 2013, she hosted the launch of Rave TV, a daily web series covering all on-and-off the field stories for Sounders FC. Over the last 10 years, Montgomery has covered a variety of sports from the 2006 BCS National Championship game to the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Montgomery is a graduate of Pepperdine University.
In addition, the Seahawks have hired Nasser Kyobe as the club's executive producer of the Seahawks' Radio Network. Kyobe joins the Seahawks after working with the Houston Astros, 710 ESPN Seattle, and the Seattle Mariners.
