Broadcasting legend Brent Musburger to become the radio voice of the Raiders.  The 79 year old’s contract reportedly starts this season.

Via Las Vegas Review-Journal:

Musburger has agreed to a three-year deal to be the radio play-by-play announcer for the Raiders starting this season, according to two sources familiar with the move. Both were not authorized to discuss the hiring.

Musburger, 79, and the Raiders declined to comment. The sources added that the move could be made official this week.

It’s a shame it’s just a radio gig.  We need Brent Musburger on TV, pointing out smokes in the stands.
