If you like to listen to Denver Broncos games on the radio, the voice of Tyler Polumbus may not be familiar, but his name should be.
Polumbus has been named the team’s new sideline reporter for Broncos fans on AM-850 KOA radio, where he will join the broadcast led by Dave Loan, who has called Broncos games since 1990.
Changes are a coming… Very excited to be joining the @Broncos Broadcast team with Dave Logan and @1RickLewis! This will be fun. pic.twitter.com/clqbG4ovtr

Polumbus, a graduate of the University of Colorado, joined the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2008. The former offensive tackle also spent time with the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, Washington Redskins and Atlanta Falcons before returning to Denver for a second stint with the team. That was a great decision for him, as it led to him owning a Super Bowl ring.
“An incredible opportunity. They’re going to incorporate me in ways that will be a little bit unusual and I’m really looking forward to working with Dave Logan, who is obviously the best, and with Rick. I think it’ll be a great team”, Polumbus said to Dave Klis of 9News.com.
Klis also notes that Polumbus will call one quarter of action from the sidelines along with Logan and Rick Lewis, who will be the new guy in the booth. Lewis will replace Ed McCaffrey, who moved to on from his position on the air after his son, Christian, was selected in the first round of the NFL draft by the Carolina Panthers.
Lewis hosts a show alongside Logan that has received solid reviews.
Though it may sound different when you tune into a game while in the car or from the comfort of your recliner like they used to in the old days (you know, before you could get games in umpteen different places), the broadcasts will still be great.
Polumbus is no amateur to the airwaves as he has experience working as a sideline reporter for the Colorado Buffaloes. More recently, he has regularly appeared on FM-104.3 The Fan.
