RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON inks REDSKINS legend and former MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL analyst JOE THEISMANN for 8-10a MONDAYS throughout the football season. The show, which will debut on FRIDAY, AUGUST 14th (the day after the SKINS’ pre-season opener), will be co-hosted by KEVIN SHEEHAN. THEISMANN will also be involved in the station’s REDSKINS pre-game show and as a guest on other shows.
THEISMANN said, "I am extremely excited for this opportunity to do a show about the Washington REDSKINS and REDSKINS fans. And for those of you who don't think I'm the voice of reason, I look forward to having a conversation with you."
VP/Operations DENNIS GLASGOW added, "To say that ESPN 980 is excited to have JOE on our team is an understatement. Having the first REDSKINS quarterback to win a SUPER BOWL is a difference-maker for the station and our great listeners. JOE will bring his outspoken perspective and intimate knowledge of the game to our airwaves, not to mention the most passionate fan base in the NFL."
