Red Zebra Broadcasting and ESPN 980 in Washington D.C. have officially announced that former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has joined their Skins broadcast team. RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING announces today that they have signed Former Washington Redskin Pro Bowler Chris Cooley to a multi year deal. Cooley will join the Washington Redskins Radio Network as an in-game contributor. “Cooley’s Corner” will be heard quarterly, every game beginning with the pre-season opener in Tennessee on August 8th, 2013. Chris joins former Redskin Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen, Rick “Doc” Walker and Brian Mitchell as former Redskin players that are members of the Washington Redskins Radio Network. Hall of Famer Sam Huff stepped down earlier this summer after 50 years with the organization. Of the hiring, Chuck Sapienza, Executive Producer for the Redskins Radio Network said “To add a talent and fan favorite like Chris to our team will add excitement to our broadcast and a level of unpredictability for our listeners.” Cooley had 429 receptions for 4,711 yards and 33 touchdowns during his 9 year playing career. Red Zebra CEO Rick Carmean said of the addition “Chris has shown he has a true knowledge of the intricacies of the game and I look forward to having him share those with our listeners along the Redskins Radio Network.” In addition to his duties for The Redskins Radio Network, Chris Cooley will also be joining the Redskins Broadcast Network for commentary on various TV and Web-based shows including The Mike Shanahan Coaches show on NBC 4.
