Redskins Announce Broadcast Teams For 2016 Preseason

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va.– The Washington Redskins and Redskins Broadcast Network announced today the television broadcast teams for the Redskins' 2016 preseason games.

All games will be carried on CSN Mid-Atlantic. However, because of broadcast conflicts with the 2016 Summer Olympics, over-the-air broadcasts will be split between NBC4 (Games 3-4) and NBC4's subcarrier, Cozi TV 4.2 (Games 1-2). Cable viewers can watch all four contests on CSN Mid-Atlantic.

This year's broadcast crews will again feature legendary Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann as an analyst and beloved Redskins running back Clinton Portis on the sidelines. FOX's Kenny Albert and CSN's Chick Hernandez will serve as the play-by-play voices.

The beloved Portis was known throughout his tenure with the Redskins from 2004-10 not only for his production as the team's second-leading rusher all-time, but also for his colorful personality with media and fans.

Theismann returns to the booth as an analyst in 2016. His background includes his illustrious playing career in which he helped guide the Redskins to victory in Super Bowl XVII, as well as a broadcast résumé featuring analyst work for Monday Night Football, Sunday Night Football and Thursday Night Football.

Hernandez will serve as the play-by-play voice of the Redskins' first two contests of the 2016 preseason. An original member of CSN, he brings more than two decades of local experience as a host, anchor and reporter to the booth. Hernandez returns to the role after having called games during the 2012 and 2015 preseasons.

Albert will handle play-by-play duties for two of the team's 2016 preseason games. Albert is one of the most versatile broadcasters in sports, annually handling national television broadcasts for football and baseball for FOX, national hockey broadcasts for the NBC Sports Network, radio play-by-play duties for the New York Rangers and more.

In addition, all games can be heard on the Redskins Radio Network with Larry Michael, Sonny Jurgensen, Chris Cooley and Rick "Doc" Walker.
