There will be a new analyst joining Tom Hudson courtside for all home and away games on the network as former Bulldog Cory Violette moves in alongside Hudson who is entering his 12th season behind the microphone as the voice of the Bulldogs.

“We are excited about Cory joining the broadcasts,” Gonzaga’s IMG College general manager Mark Livingston said. “We’d also like to welcome KIXI to what we believe is an outstanding line-up of stations on the Gonzaga radio network to give us excellent coverage throughout the state of Washington.”
IMG College is the Bulldogs multi-media rights holder and corporate partner.
Violette, a native of Boise, Idaho, who now lives and works in Spokane, played for the Bulldogs from 2001-04, earning All-West Coast Conference honors in 2003 and ’04 and receiving National Association of Basketball Coaches District 14 second-team accolades his last two seasons.
