Luke Kuechly to Join the Carolina Panthers Radio Broadcast

Former Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly will be taking his talents to the mics next season.

The Panthers announced Monday that Kuechly would be returning to the organization to be a part of the radio team for seven games — including six home games — from Week 1 to Week 15.

Here are the games he’ll reportedly do:

  • Week 1: vs. Browns
  • Week 4: vs. Cardinals
  • Week 5: vs. 49ers
  • Week 7: vs. Buccaneers
  • Week 9: @ Bengals
  • Week 12: vs. Broncos
  • Week 15: vs. Steelers

The eight-year veteran will be the third person in the booth, along with play-by-play announcer Anish Shroff and either former left tackle Jordan Gross or quarterback Jake Delhomme, both of whom spent at least seven years with the Panthers in their respective careers.

He joins a long list of former player broadcasters, including Charles Davis, Jonathan Vilma, Troy Aikman and Aqib Talib, among others.

Here is what Kuechly told Panthers.com about the decision:

“I just love the Panthers. I love being around it,” Kuechly said. “I think it could be a lot of fun. I think that’s the biggest reason, to do something around the game on game day that’s fun. You still get the atmosphere, and all the good memories I have here in Carolina … I think at the end of the day, it’s really just football. And I think talking about football is relatively easy. There’s going to be a learning curve, and things happen way faster in the booth. To be able to deliver a concise message and paint a picture for somebody is something these guys are really good at, and I’m going to have to get used to.”

Check out the full piece over at Panthers.com.

Kuechly, one of the most storied players in Panthers franchise history and one of the best linebackers of his generation, totaled 1,092 tackles — 690 solo — with 75 tackles-for-loss and 12.5 sacks across his eight-year career. The former first-round pick reached seven Pro Bowls, made five All-Pro teams and was recognized as the defensive player of the year by the Associated Press in 2013, his second year in the NFL.

“You just know (Kuechly’s) going to be good at it,” Delhomme told Panthers.com. “I look forward to it because he’s so smart.”
