Chiefs Broadcast Booth Named After Gold Jacket Len Dawson

Before the Kanas City Chiefs kicked off against the Philadelphia Eagles at Arrow Head Stadium on Sunday, September 17, the Chiefs named their television broadcast booth after Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson.

Dawson is in his 34th and final season as the Chiefs’ radio color commentator.

“It’s not going to be difficult to get away from it because I have had 50 years of it. I happen to be at the right place, at right time to get that opportunity. I’m very proud of the fact that I have accomplished things. It’s been a great run and I’m not finished yet,” explained Dawson.

Dawson began working as a sports anchor in Kansas City in 1966. During his 14-year career he established franchise records with 237 touchdowns and 28,507 passing yards.

“Len Dawson is a Kansas City icon, and few people have transformed the Chiefs franchise and the city of Kansas City the way that Len has,” Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said in a news release.

“For his outstanding contributions as a broadcaster, we are thrilled to recognize his career accomplishments by dedicated the Len Dawson Television Broadcast Booth.”
