Harlan Returns to Chiefs for Preseason TV Coverage

HARLAN RETURNS TO CHIEFS FOR PRESEASON TV COVERAGE IN 2009

The Kansas City Chiefs and KCTV5 announced on Tuesday that CBS Sports NFL play-by-play announcer Kevin Harlan will officially join the Chiefs Television Network to call a pair of preseason games for Kansas City in 2009. Harlan will be in the booth for the club’s games at Minnesota (8/21) and vs. Seattle (8/29).

A household name for Chiefs fans, Harlan served as “Voice of the Chiefs” from ’85-93, calling some of the most memorable contests in franchise history on the Chiefs Radio Network. A graduate of the University of Kansas, Harlan joined CBS Sports in ’98 and will embark on his 26th season of broadcasting NFL football in 2009. The Chiefs organization is excited that Harlan will bring his knowledge, insight and enthusiasm to the Chiefs Television Network this season as he shares his unique perspective on Chiefs football with viewers across the Midwest.

FOX Sports NFL analyst Jayice Pearson returns to the Chiefs Television Network for a seventh season in 2009. A cornerback for the Chiefs from ’86-92, Pearson will join Harlan in the broadcast booth for the first time this season. Former Chiefs T Rich Baldinger also returns to handle sideline reports.

The Chiefs are also pleased to announce that veteran broadcaster Dave Armstrong will cover the play-by-play duties for two games on the Chiefs Television Network. Owning a litany of national and local broadcasting credits, Armstrong has previously broadcast Kansas City Royals and Seattle Seahawks games, in addition to Big 8, Big Ten and Big 12 basketball.

The Chiefs Television Network will broadcast all four Chiefs preseason games to 12 different markets in a five-state region that includes Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
