Peter McLoughlin Done as Seahawks President and CEO

By Reid Urban

Peter McLoughlin, the president of the Seahawks for the last eight years, is out of the job.

The team announced on Monday that McLoughlin will be replaced by Chuck Arnold, who has been with the Seahawks for 25 years. Meanwhile, Burt Kolde, who is the vice-chairman of the Seahawks, said that McLoughlin’s contract was expiring and that it was a good time to do organizational restructuring.

As a part of that restructuring, it was announced that Chris McGowan will be promoted to Vulcan Sports and Entertainment CEO, and that Arnold will report directly to McGowan.

As the new team president, Arnold will manage all the team business operations and will also serve as president of First & Goal Inc., as well as overseeing the management of CenturyLink Field, CenturyLink Field Event Center, First & Goal Hospitality, and the WaMu Theater.

Kolde said on Monday that the contract was the main reason for the change.

This move comes during a time when it looks like the Seahawks are rebuilding the team on the field and coach Pete Carroll only has two years left on his contract.

Cheat Codes x ESPN’s Monday Night Football

Tonight, ESPN will feature a special performance from multi-platinum, electronic/dance/pop group Cheat Codes (comprised of Trevor Dahl, Matthew Russell and Kevi Ford) during their broadcast of the Chicago Bears against the Seattle Seahawks. The performance of their hit “Feels Great” will include an appearance from track’s featured guest, CVBZ. Kick-off for the game is set for 8:15pm ET, with the performance slated to air during the Genesis Halftime Show (#GenesisHalftimeShow).

This performance marks the second National television appearance behind “Feels Great,” following Cheat Codes’ appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this year. “Feels Great” is approaching 2 million singles sold around the world and broke top 30 on U.S. pop radio.

2018 has been a banner year for the trio, with their single “No Promises” ft. Demi Lovato approaching 5X platinum certification globally including 1.7 million sales equivalents in North America. Billboard interviewed the trio earlier this summer for their Beat Break segment, in addition to a high-profile appearance at their Hot 100 Festival. The group were also hand picked by The Chainsmokers to join them for select dates this year, in addition to sets at Electric Daisy Carnival, Firefly Music Festival, Summerfest and Ultra Music Festival in Europe.

More recently, the trio collaborated with UK girl group Little Mix on the track “Only You” which is already generating buzz on streaming platforms having passed over 500,000 equivalents globally. The track reached #1 in the UK and is currently #38* in the U.S. and on rotation at 70 radio stations.
