Former Chiefs quarterback Len Dawson, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a player, will re-enter as a broadcaster. Dawson will receive the 2012 Pete Rozelle Radio-Television Award from the Pro Football Hall of Fame for “longtime exceptional contributions to radio and television in professional football.”
The 77 year old Dawson will be recognized on Aug. 3, the night before the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. It will mark the 25th anniversary of his 1987 induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, which is just 20 miles up the road from Dawson’s hometown of Alliance, Ohio.
Dawson joins Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf as the only three in the hall as a player and broadcaster.
