Frank Herzog is a former American sportscaster, best known for his role as a play-by-play announcer for Washington Redskins radio broadcasts from 1979 to 2004, where he teamed with Sam Huff and Sonny Jurgensen. His trademark was to announce every Redskins touchdown with the phrase, "Touchdown, Washington Redskins!"

In addition to his Redskins work, Herzog called games for the Washington Bullets, Maryland Terrapins basketball, and college football and basketball on the CBS network. He also worked for a number of Washington, D.C.-area television stations including WTOP, WJLA, and WUSA. Herzog also has had minor parts in a few films, including 2009's State of Play, starring Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck.[1]

He retired from his news anchor job with WTOP radio in March 2010.[2]
