One of the true monuments of Washington is going to be part-time this year.
Red Zebra Broadcasting announced Tuesday that legendary Redskins announcers Sonny Jurgensen and Sam Huff would return to the broadcast team this year, but that Huff would work just 12 games.
Citing “the rigors of travel,” the release said Huff has decided to do only the 10 home games and road trips to Dallas and New York.
“Sonny and Sam” have worked together since 1981, a span of 600 broadcasts which includes all three Super Bowl wins.
While not the most polished of broadcasters, they bring a sense of old-school levity to the process.
Larry Michael returns as the play-by-play/straight man, and Rick “Doc” Walker will provide sideline commentary.
