COVID-19 in Washington: Links and resources to help you during coronavirus pandemic

Aaron Levine joined Q13 Fox in March 2007 and has been sports director since January 2009. He’s the host of Seahawks Gameday, Seahawks Saturday Night, Talkin’ Huskies and Q It Up Sports, along with his nightly sportscast duties.

Prior to Seattle, Aaron worked in Bakersfield, California, for 2 ½ years at KBAK, covering minor league sports, Cal State Bakersfield athletics and high school sports across Kern County.

He was the national runner-up on ESPN’s reality show, “Dream Job,” which was the company’s search for a new SportsCenter anchor in 2004. He majored in history at Stanford University.

From the minute he arrived in the Pacific Northwest, Aaron has been blown away by the incredible fan culture around all the local teams. His favorite memories so far have been celebrating championships, from the Seahawks Super Bowl parade in 2014, to both Sounders MLS Cup parades and the Storm’s WNBA Championship celebrations in 2010 and 2018. Just like everyone else, he can’t wait for the Mariners to finally contend for a World Series title, too.

Aaron lives with his wife Shayna, their son Kaden, and their mini-labradoodle Bailey. While he’s a veteran of game shows (he was on The Price Is Right as an 18-year-old), his dream is to one day be a contestant on Jeopardy!

Under the shadows of Mount Si, that frustration cuts a bit deeper: On two fields now ready to host the home teams. “These poor […]

  • Commentary: Less than ideal conditions could favor Carroll, Seahawks in NFL Draft

    We’re now less than three weeks from what could be the craziest NFL Draft in league history. For the teams themselves, potentially a logistical nightmare beyond anyone’s imagination. Which gives the Seahawks one key advantage. But first, some context: Most teams would prefer the draft to be postponed. Two weeks ago, a subcommittee of general managers recommended postponement, citing a number of reasons: Pro days have been cancelled. Teams can’t meet with players in person. There’s not enough time for […]

  • Commentary: For better or worse, sports betting is here – although there’s nothing to bet on

    While you were responsibly staying informed about COVID-19 updates or going down the rabbit hole known as “Tiger King” on Netflix, there was another major breakthrough – and a perfectly ironic one at that: That sports betting is now legal inside tribal casinos in the state of Washington. Of course, it WOULD come at a time when there are no sports to bet on and no open casinos. But let’s take a closer look: Even though Governor Inslee signed the […]

  • Commentary: No time to Clowney around – bring him back, Seahawks

    About a week into NFL Free Agency, and still no word on the future of Jadeveon Clowney. Frankly, I don’t know what will happen. But what I do know is: The Seahawks desperately need his help. It’s very rare that the Seahawks rank toward the bottom of the NFL in any category. But last year, the Hawks had the second-fewest sacks in the league with 28. It was the lowest total in the Pete Carroll Era. In fact, the Seahawks […]
