The Kansas City Chiefs Radio Network and Entercom announced a new broadcast team for the 2020 NFL season on 610 Sports Radio’s “Cody and Gold” Friday morning. Former Chiefs wide receiver and friend-of-the-site Danan Hughes will be on color commentary with 610 Sports Radio’s own Josh Klingler on the sideline.
Hughes has been a Chiefs analyst for several years, working for the team, local television stations and 610 Sports Radio since 2014. He has been broadcasting football and baseball as part of the Big Ten Network since 2008.
In addition to co-hosting “Fescoe in the Morning” during the week, Klingler has worked as a broadcast talent for Kansas Athletics through IMG and ESPN platforms for football, men’s and women’s basketball, soccer and baseball since 2005.
The duo will join play-by-play host Mitch Holthus on the call. Veteran sportscaster Art Hains will return as the host of the pregame and postgame show coverage.
As we wrote in December, the Chiefs will be broadcast on a new station in 2020: 106.5 The Wolf (WDAF-FM), moving on from 101.1 The Fox, which had Kansas City’s games since 1990.
610 Sports Radio is the official broadcast partner of the Chiefs for 2020 and beyond, meaning exclusive rights to various categories of Chiefs programming, including live radio broadcast rights to weekly in-season press conferences with the club’s head coach and a weekly interview with the starting quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.
610 Sports Radio will also broadcast the “Chiefs Kingdom Radio Show” — which is hosted by Holthus — on Monday nights from 6 to 7 p.m. Arrowhead Time.
