Frank Herzog has been fired as the voice of the Redskins
|Sheriff Gonna Getcha ||02-26-2004 04:33 PM |
Why? He's Part Of Our History

For whatever reason they've been trying to push him out for years and replace him with Larry Michaels. Herzog will probably do the tv play by play for the Redskins preseason games.

No more, "Touchdown, Washington Redskins" :(
That's such a classic line, simple but gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it.

Actually, I believe NBC 4 has the TV contract for the pre-season games, so it will likely still likely be George Michael doing the play-by-play.
This is very F-d up though...
|SmootSmack ||02-26-2004 05:29 PM |
I don't know how upset Frank really is about this. I mean I know he's not happy about no longer being the voice of the Redskins, but it's a hectic schedule for him balancing his tv and radio work, especially with all the travel. And he isn't exactly best of friends with Sonny and Sam. At least not Sam

WUSA-TV 9 picked up the contract for this summer. Channel 4 dropped it because it conflicted with the Olympics

I'm not from the D.C. area, how long was this guy around? I know up here around Buffalo Van Miller was a really big " legend " in the press. Was this guy like him too?
|johnnyredskin63 ||02-26-2004 05:53 PM |
[SIZE=3]he must have been doing redskins games the better part of 30 years.i can't imagine listening to the redskins on the radio without him calling the games anymore.he is as much of a legend to skins fans,as chick korea,harry carray,and mel allen were to their perspective teams.[/SIZE]

Where did you hear about this smootsmack? I've searched the WJFK site, WP, and google trying to find it, and I can't. Can you give me us a link?
If this is true, it's terrible.

I think it's in the WP now, but truthfully Herzog is a friend of mine and he told me this afternoon, that's how I found out

That's really a shame. In this time of going back to the "old school" he is by very definition old school and a great part of Redskins history.
