Radio[edit]

As of 2008, the Redskins' flagship station is WTEM (ESPN 980), owned by Red Zebra Broadcasting, which in turn is owned by Daniel Snyder. Redskins games are also simulcast on the five other Red Zebra stations in the Washington, D.C. area.[1]

Larry Michael, formerly of Westwood One, is the team's play-by-play announcer and director of broadcasting.[2] Michael replaced longtime announcer Frank Herzog in 2004.[3] Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff are the color analysts.[3] Rick "Doc" Walker is the sideline reporter.
