Chiefs broadcaster Len Dawson to retire after 2017 season


According to a release from the Kansas City Chiefs and the Chiefs Radio Network, the 2017 season will mark the final season for Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and broadcaster Len Dawson on the Chiefs Radio Network.

Dawson enters his 33rd season with the Chiefs Radio Network in 2017. This year he will contribute pre-produced segments and offer live pregame analysis leading up to kickoff.

Dawson began his broadcasting career in 1966 while still playing quarterback for the Chiefs. He joined the Chiefs Radio Network as a commentator in 1984.

For his contributions to broadcasting, Dawson was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as the recipient of the Hall’s Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award in 2012. He was only the third individual in history to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as both a player and a broadcaster, joining Dan Dierdorf and Frank Gifford.

Dawson is the longest-tenured sportscaster in Kansas City radio and television history.
