Carolina Panthers radio broadcasts just got a lot more fun.

The Carolina Panthers will be adding some talent to the radio booth for 2019. Jake Delhomme and Jordan Gross will be manning the booth, adding some insight and knowledge as the team sets to embark on what should be a great season.

Delhomme will call all of the regular season home games. He will also have a couple road games on his slate, calling the Carolina Panthers contest against the Houston Texans on September 29, and the New Orleans Saints on November 24. Gross will handle the rest of the road games, which includes a trip to London to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 13. He will certainly log some miles on his itinerary for that trip.

ParkingI love the idea of having Carolina Panthers legends back in the booth. These two played the game hard, and they played it the right way. Particularly during the 2003 season that included a Super Bowl run, they were instrumental in helping Carolina get there. They are names that fans will recognize, and subsequently, they will want to tune in to see what these guys have to say. They should make radio broadcasts a lot of fun.

This is also great news in light of the fact that the Panthers are celebrating their 25th season as an organization. To have alumni come back and still be a part of the team in this way is awesome. They both played a huge part in the history of the franchise. Their contributions cannot be ignored, and they certainly haven’t been. These two have always been thought of highly by Carolina Panthers fans, even if their collective teams did not reach the ultimate goal.

Panthers radio broadcasts just got a whole lot more interesting. It will be fun to have the greats of the past commentating the present. Just like the past, the future appears to be very bright for this team. Maybe, just maybe, the current iteration of the Panthers will include a Super Bowl run like the one their radio broadcasters took part in.
