Change comes in many forms. Whenever the Redskins decide their new name, they will have a new voice calling their games on the radio.

According to ESPN's John Keim, Larry Michael – the longtime radio play-by-play announcer for Redskins game broadcasts – has announced his retirement from his position with the team, a surprising turn in a week which began with front office members Alex Santos and Richard Mann II being fired on Sunday.

"After 16 great years my time with the organization is over. As of today I'll be retiring from my position with the team. As a lifelong Washingtonian I was blessed to work with a lot of great people," Michael said in a statement to Keim. "I want to thank everyone who contributed over the years. I’m especially grateful to Dan Snyder for giving me the opportunity. On to the next chapter."

I don't know any more than this. I do know Larry was always kind to me and welcoming.

Officially, Michael served in the position of Chief Content Office/Senior Vice President. His voice loomed large beyond the airwaves at Redskins Park, responsible for shaping much of the Redskins' public-facing image through digital media and broadcast television. He was also the host of "Redskins Nation" on NBC Sports Washington.
