In 2016, Dawson will reduce his role and only call the home games.

“I’ve been traveling on Sundays for over 60 years as a player and a broadcaster. It takes its toll. Now I have the opportunity to do what I love and work the games without the travel,” Dawson said via a release by Cumulus.

Kendall Gammon, the former long snapper who spent 15 years in the NFL and has been working as the sideline reporter for the network, will take Dawson’s place in the booth on the road with the “Voice of the Chiefs,” Mitch Holthus.
