CLEAR CHANNEL Talk KOA-A/DENVER UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO football broadcaster LARRY ZIMMER will be honored as the 15th recipient of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL FOUNDATION's CHRIS SCHENKEL Award, recognizing excellence in broadcasting college football at a single institution for an extended career. The award, to be bestowed on ZIMMER at the NFF's annual awards dinner on DECEMBER 8th, has gone in the past to notables like NOTRE DAME voice TONY ROBERTS and GEORGIA's LARRY MUNSON.
"It is certainly the highlight of my career because it recognizes two of the things that I love the most, and that's broadcasting college football and my association with the UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO through the years and all of the people I’ve met," said ZIMMER. "When I look at the names of the previous winners, there are some great people on that list and it’s an unbelievable distinction to join them."
