The Kansas City Chiefs have announced their talent teams for the 2022 season. The club's in-house preseason television network will add a new face in 2022, while the Chiefs Radio Network crew that originally debuted during the 2020 season will return for a third-consecutive year in 2022.
"Chiefs Kingdom has become accustomed to having top talent leading both the club's preseason TV broadcasts as well as the Chiefs Radio Network, and we're happy to continue that trend this year," Chiefs Vice President of Content and Production Rob Alberino said. "Fans will continue to enjoy familiar faces and voices as part of both broadcast teams, and we're thrilled to bring a national television personality who happens to be a Kansas City native into the fold this year as well."
Chiefs Preseason Television
Chiefs Preseason Television will feature NFL Network anchor Ari Wolfe as the play-by-play announcer for the third season in 2022. Former Pro Bowl quarterback and NFL on CBS analyst Trent Green returns to the booth for his 12th season as the preseason crew's color commentator. Joining Wolfe and Green for her first year as sideline reporter for the Chiefs Preseason Television team is Kimmi Chex, a Kansas City, Missouri, native and on-air host and personality for NFL Media. Chiefs Senior Reporter Matt McMullen is entering his second season delivering sideline features and reports for the preseason broadcasts. Produced by 65 Toss Power Trap Productions, all three of the club's preseason games will air locally on KSHB.
Chiefs Radio Network
The Chiefs Radio Network, anchored by 106.5 The Wolf (WDAF-FM), will see its entire crew return for the third-consecutive season in 2022. "Voice of the Chiefs" Mitch Holthus returns for his 29th season as the club's play-by-play personality. Holthus has called a team-record 472 career regular and postseason games for the club, earning eight Kansas Sportscaster of the Year awards and one Missouri Sportscaster of the Year award. Joining Holthus in the booth for the third year is former Chiefs wide receiver and current Ambassador Danan Hughes, who has been broadcasting football and baseball as part of the Big Ten Network since 2008, as well as Chiefs pregame and postgame shows on local television since 2014. Josh Klingler, a morning show host on 610 Sports Radio (KCSP-AM) and sideline reporter for the University of Kansas for more than 16 years, enters his third season as the network's sideline reporter. Veteran sportscaster Art Hains will also return as host of 106.5 The Wolf's pregame and postgame show coverage alongside Executive Producer Dan Israel.
