Verne Lundquist To Return To Dallas Cowboys Radio Booth For One Night

A familiar voice will call the DALLAS COWBOYS' SUNDAY night opener on CBS RADIO Sports KRLD-F (105.3 THE FAN)/DALLAS on SEPTEMBER 13th, and it won't be longtime play-by-play broadcaster BRAD SHAM, who will be taking the night off to observe ROSH HASHANAH.
Instead, the previous longtime COWBOYS announcer, legendary CBS SPORTS play-by-play man VERNE LUNDQUIST, will return for one night only to fill in for SHAM.
The DALLAS MORNING NEWS' BARRY HORN reports that LUNDQUIST will fly to ARLINGTON after calling the GEORGIA-VANDERBILT game on SEPTEMBER 12th, and will broadcast the COWBOYS-NEW YORK GIANTS game with analyst BABE LAUFENBERG.
SHAM asked LUNDQUIST to do the fill-in after producer DOUGLAS BARRICKLOW suggested it to COWBOYS Dir./Broadcasting SCOTT PURCEL. LUNDQUIST called the COWBOYS games on radio from 1967 through 1983.
