Chicago Enforcers Name Radio Broadcast Team

The XFL Chicago Enforcers have announced their radio broadcast team for the 2001 football season that will be heard on ESPN Radio 1000. Play-by-Play duties will be handled by current ESPN Radio personality Bill Simonson. Joining Simonson in the color analyst role will be former Chicago Bears standout and member of their Super Bowl XX championship team, Otis Wilson. Rounding out the broadcast team will be ESPN Radio's Lou Canellis, who will tackle sideline reporting.

"Obviously Otis is one of the more popular Chicago sports figures and will be a great asset to the broadcast team," says Enforcers Acting Vice President/General Manager Rich Rose. "Bill and Lou have a loyal following on ESPN and will be able to bring their unique style of broadcasting to the XFL."

Simonson and Canellis currently host "The Huge Show" weekday afternoons on ESPN Radio. Wilson has been heard on various radio stations in Chicago since his playing career ended.

"We're excited to have three personalities who will reflect the attitude and style of play embodied in the XFL and Chicago Enforcers football. This won't be your typical football radio broadcast," said Jack Trompeter, Enforcers Vice President of Marketing.

"I'm pleased and honored to be a part of the Chicago Enforcers radio broadcast team on ESPN Radio. It's a great opportunity for me to become involved again in football in this city, especially the rough and tough, fast-paced action of the XFL," said Wilson of his new position with the team.
