Dennis Patchin (born 1958) is an American Sportscaster in the Pacific Northwest and has been with KXLY4 since 1984. He has covered everything from the Rose Bowl to the Mariners post-season; from the Spokane Chiefs winning the Memorial Cup to 25 State 'B' Tournaments, 25 Bloomsdays and every Hoopfest.
Patchin also has been the television voice for every team in Spokane and many others around the area, including the Spokane Chiefs, Gonzaga Bulldogs, Washington State Cougars, Idaho Vandals, Eastern Washington Eagles, Whitworth Pirates, Spokane Indians, and G.S.L. football and basketball.
Along with Rick Lukens, Patchin came up with the idea for Friday Night Sports Extra, which in 2005 celebrated its 20th anniversary. It was one of the first shows of its kind in the nation and is the longest running high school football show in the West.
Patchin also was the voice of the Gonzaga Bulldogs on radio for four seasons, during which the Zags went to three straight Sweet 16 tournaments in the post-season. In addition, he was the television voice of Gonzaga Basketball games for five years, and the voice of Big Sky Conference Football for three years on Fox Sports Northwest.
Patchin recently celebrated his 28th wedding anniversary with his wife Dorothy, a school teacher in Spokane. They have three children, Christopher, Matthew and Lauren.
