The search for the next voice of Washington Football has concluded, with the team announcing the additions of Bram Weinstein and DeAngelo Hall to its radio broadcast crew.
Donaldson is the first woman to be named to an NFL team's game day broadcast booth.
In addition to making up the radio broadcast on Sundays, Donaldson, Hall and Weinstein will "take part in various parts of the team's weekly television broadcast programming with specifics to be released imminently," the team says in its press release announcing the hires.
"With DeAngelo's experience as the Pro-Bowl 'eyes' of our defense for a decade, not to mention his work with the NFL Network, and Bram's tenures as a sports broadcaster and a Washington Football fan, we'll be able to relate to and involve the players and the fans like never before," Donaldson said.
"I am incredibly excited and honored to be joining this storied franchise as the next game day analyst," Hall said of the news. "While I loved my time playing for Washington for the better part of 10 years, there is more I would have liked to have accomplished for the fans.
"This opportunity will allow me to make a lasting impact in a different way. We are heading into the future with Julie Donaldson and I am excited to be her teammate for this journey.""Since 1979, only two people have had the privilege of holding the position of play-by-play voice of the Washington Football Team," Weinstein said. "With that in mind, and knowing what this team means to our community, I am humbled and honored to be given this opportunity. This is the fulfillment of a dream.
"This is also an exciting time to start with so much change happening in and around the franchise. Julie Donaldson has what I believe is an amazing vision for what the modern fans will want from us and I'm proud to have been selected to be part of her team."
